Another shameless incident of desecrating Sikh holy book Guru Granth Sahib was reported at the Shikarpur gurdwara in Sindh Province of Pakistan.

The Daily Times reports that some unknown people at Gurdwara Khat Wari Darbar in Store Ganj area of Shikarpur had torn 24 pages of the sacred book causing annoyance and fear among the Sindhi Sikhs.

According to the report, a case has been registered under section 295 Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) against unknown person in the local police station.

ASP Tariq Wilayat said that the police are still on the lookout for the actual culprit. However, the recent tussle between the Sikh and Hindu community has created doubts that some local Hindus might be involved. (ANI)
