Beheaded Body of a Sikh Found in Pakistan


Islamabad/New Delhi, Feb 22 (IANS) One of the three Sikhs abducted by Pakistani Taliban was found beheaded in Pakistan's restive tribal region, a media report said.

The victim was identified as Jaspal Singh, who was kidnapped along with two other Sikh residents by Taliban militants from Tirah valley in Khyber Agency near the provincial capital Peshawar, the DownNews reported.

A letter was also found with the body warning the relatives of the deceased and other Sikh locals against disclosing the case to the media.

The letter threatened the community with suicide attacks if the details of the beheading and kidnapping were revealed to the media or security forces.

Jaspal's two other companions, Gorwandar Singh and Srujeet Singh, are still being held captive by the militants, the report said.

No group has claimed responsibility for the abduction and murder.

Meanwhile, India's opposition Bhartiya Janata Party has condemned the killing and asked the government to mount "diplomatic pressure" on Pakistan to ensure release of the abducted Sikh residents in the country.

Minorities are facing threats in Pakistan and terrorism presents the real picture of that country, BJP spokesman Ravi Shankar Prasad said in New Delhi.

A large number of Pakistani Sikhs has fled from Orakzai and Tirah valley where the non-Muslims have been charged "Jazai" or Islamic Tax by militants on the pretext of providing security in the area.

    Shahnawaz Kukkikatte and others...the Sikh Killed in Pakistan is not Indian, he is a Pakistani. From the comments of many, we dont mind killing persons in Mangalore/India...but we are more worried about the killings in Pakistan..!!! What a tragedy..!!

    Shanawaz,Manuvadies have welcomed all religions including yours to India.Don't drag "Nayi" into this discussion."Nayi"is the other name for loyalty which is something that can't be associated with creatures like you who suffer from a disease called minority complex.

    Mr Guru, I know the religion followed by these dirty criminals who beheaded innocent sikh are muslims. You dont have to question it as the whole world knows they are muslims. I have throw your card back at you. Can you tell me the religion of those SRS men who were arrested in connection with the plan to murder two innocent people? Dont look at their religion and pass your observation. All religions preaches good thing. Look at their ideologies and pass your comments. Its the ideologies that are creating problems and not the religions. BJP/RSS ideology is no better than Al Qaida ideology. Both are equal and terrorists. Only a small negligible percentage of followers of particular religion subscribe to these ideologies and majority reject them. Here Al Qaida followers are negigible muslims and RSS/BJP followers are negligible hindus. Majority of hindus and muslims love each other, love peace and love their neighbours. We have been living peacefully in the past and shall continue to live so in the future too. Fascist forces shall be defeated and routed out of this country as Nazis are driven out in Germany. Hitler committed suicide. I dont know who shall committ suicide in India. Is it Modi or Gadkari??????

    Kiran/Guru/Nagesh Nayak, where were you hiding? Why didnt you guys commented when SRS workers were arrested for polotting to kill two innocent men to avenge humiliation meted out to their/your hero Mutalik. This silence and indifference of yours expose your dirty minds/culture and substantiate my first observation/comment on this article in this forum.

    You all stand exposed today. Let the readers be the judges and decide the matter between you and me. Why the BJP govt or HM didnt condemn this act of SRS????? You double takes. Do I require more proof than this single incident to prove you people have gone morale bankruptcy.

    Mr. Shahnawaz Kukkikatte, what you have written is cent percent correct. But, some narrow minded BJP supporters can not digest your comments because their mind, blood, heart and soul is filled with hatred for minority. Once they come out from their pit and travel out of India, they will realise what human values are. They are restless because they know what they do and think is wrong, but, the jealousy doesn't allow them to tolerate the efficiency, sincerity and dedication of honest, peace abiding leaders like Sonia Madam, Rahul Sir, Manmohanji etc. However, I am sure, majority of people will agree with your comments. Well said Mr. Shahnawaz and don't be disheartened by the comments of few jealous individuals.

    hi,shahnawaz kukkikatte, dubai/udupi, your comments are highly condemnable. you born only to blame bjp. Shri.Narendra Modi has been applauded by all except psuedos like you. Mouth ka saudagar was narrated by your laadli italian madamme & Shri. Modi was won consecutively three times with thumbing majority. by the way where is your 39 year old young hero. Did he knew about self immoation of young telangana guy. Why your hero is not visiting hyderabad(telangana). Why is visiting mumbai to withdraw money from ATM & travelling in local train with full security & giving problems for daily commuters. jai ho.

    Highly condemnable and deplorable act. Its the duty of any govt to protect minorities and their interest, whether it is in Pakistan, Afganistan or India. Human being must be treated as human beings and must be treated as equal to each other. No one should treat a human being as hindu, muslim, christian, sikh etc etc. Secondly the BJP party or its spokesperson has no moral right to condemn such attacks as they are the pioneers and patrons of more gruesome attacks on minorities and their places of worships. Mr Modi of Gujarat has been named as "mouth ka saudagar" - Trader of death.

    What they speak, they must act. When it comes to Indian nationals prosecuted elsewhere, they make halla gulla but forgot that they are prosecuting their own countrymen who dont believe in their ideologies. They have gone moral and intellectual bankruptcy. Why two yard sticks? One for outside India and another inside India. I hate such a hypocrisy. BJP is known for double take and double standards.
