Pakistan Court Jails Three For Vandalising Gurdwara Nankana Sahib
Prime accused Imran Chishti has actually been imprisoned for 2 years and fined 10,000 Pakistani Rupees
Pakistan’s Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) on Tuesday sentenced approximately two years jail time to 3 convicts included in vandalizing Gurdwara Nankana Sahib in the nation’s Punjab province.
Gurdwara Nankana Sahib, also called Gurdwara Janam Asthan, is a website near Lahore where the very first Guru of Sikhs, Guru Nanak, was born.
In January 2020, a violent mob had actually attacked the Gurdwara and tossed stones and threatened to damage the minorities praise place (Gurdwara Janamasthan) to develop “Ghulaman-e-Mustafa” shrine there. However, police had managed the situation.
” On Tuesday a Lahore’s ATC handed down 2 years prison term to prime implicated Imran Chishti and imposed a fine of 10,000 Pakistani Rupees. Two other implicated – Muhammad Salman and Muhammad Ahmed – were convicted for six months. Nevertheless, four other accused were acquitted for want of proof,” a court authorities informed PTI.
All the suspects existed in the court when the sentence was revealed. Strict security steps were taken to handle any protest by the spiritual elements in the wake of their conviction.
Imran Chishti, a civil servant operating in the Fisheries Department, and other suspects were apprehended under terrorism and blasphemy charges following the attack on the Gurdwara in 2015. They dealt with charges under areas 295 A, 290, 291, 341,506, 148 and 149 of Pakistan Penal Code and 7-ATA (anti-terrorism act).
According to the FIR, Chishti had incited the mob. He wished to settle his household problem and developed a law-and-order situation in the Nankana city. Authorities said Chishti had deliberately misinformed the area’s Muslim people against the Sikhs for his “household matter”.
Convict Chishti is the senior sibling Mohammad Hassan who wed a teenage Sikh lady, Jagjit Kaur, in September, 2020 after presumably snatching and converting her to Islam. The Muslims and Sikhs of Nankana Sahib, some 80 kms from Lahore, had a face-off over the matter.
Chishti had claimed that his brother has been battered by police for “legally and consensually” weding the daughter of the gurdwara’s granthi.
Jagjit Kaur has been residing in Darul Aman (government shelter house) in Lahore. Her new name is Ayesha. She apparently has actually declined to transform back and return to her house.
Mohammad Hassan has actually been pressed by police and authorities to divorce her.
India had highly condemned the event of vandalism at the revered Gurdwara and hired the Pakistan federal government to take instant actions to guarantee the safety and security of the Sikh community there.
Numerous protesters had actually also thronged the streets near the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi requiring that Islamabad provide adequate security to Sikh shrines and community members there.
Shiromani Gurdwara Parbhandhak Committee, the top body which handles Sikh shrines in India, had also prompted the Pakistan federal government to take rigid action against the offenders who attacked the gurdwara – one of the holiest sites in Sikhism.
