Leaders of the Sikh community claimed that several incidents of defilement of their holy book have taken place in Sindh over the past few weeks but the provincial and federal governments are not taking any notification to seize the offenders.

The demonstrators, holding posters and placards and chanting slogans against the incident, made a surprise entry into the Parliament House premises, leaving police guessing about why and from where the protestors rushed in.

Crossing all blockades, the campaigners first entered the Parliament House parking area provoking police to fire tear-gas shells, but to no benefit.

The Sikh community men took hold of a small stage, set up for the parliamentarian to talk to media persons. Few of them spoke from the platform and speedily described the incident.

They swore not to leave the Parliament House premises unless the higher ruling classes come to hear them and satisfy their demands.

Representatives of the Sikh community also demanded for their safety in Sindh and other cities of Pakistan.
