It is pertinent to mention here that this incident has taken place days after the clash between Christians and Nihangs in the village that is near Jandiala. After this whole incident, the people belonging to Christianity jammed the Patti Khemkaran road this morning. The people are on a dharna and are demanding justice as well as the arrest of the accused. Police have reached the spot and are trying to convince the people to calm down.

On Sunday, the ongoing program of Christians in Jandiala Guru’s village Dandua was stopped by the Nihangs. A case was registered against 150 Nihangs after this incident as they destroyed everything in the program.

The Jathedar of Sri Akal Takht Sahib, Giani Harprit Singh also issued a statement on Tuesday opposing the government to register the case against Nihangs. He said, “the Christian priests are misleading Hindus and Sikhs by hypocrisy and getting them converted. Many times, Nihangs complained about this, but the government did not listen to them.”
