The Man Threatening The Sikh Community In Nankana Sahib Has Apologized

By Sana Yasmeen | 5 Jan, 2020

Amidst the chaotic dilemma of the possibility of World War 3, an ill-intended group of protestors threatened the Sikh community, surrounding Gurdwara Nankana Sahib on Friday afternoon. The group intended to terrorize the community and clear the city off of its presence.

 

People took to highlighting the Nankana Sahib protestors spreading terror amidst the Sikh community in Pakistan on social media.

 

Imran Ali Chishti was amongst these protestors, who had earlier uploaded his videos with threatening messages for the Sikh community within Pakistan.

The man also made speeches where he promised the crowd that being a Muslim, he’d stand up against Sikhs and change the name of the Gurdwara to Ghulam-e-Mustafa Mosque.

 

However, an apology video of this man has since then surfaced. 

He stated how his words from the protest were just an emotional flow of statements and he denied having any intentions to act on them and actually hurt the Sikh community. He further apologized for his hurtful words and stated that they shared a sense of brotherhood with the Sikhs.

 

People of Pakistan demanded that this man be sent behind bars for promoting violence at Nankana Sahib

Having seen similar incidents and people getting away for them, the awaam were not quick to forgive him for just offering an apology.

The use of violence in any form is condemnable. At a time when minorities are extremely vulnerable, it is especially important that such incidents are avoided by educating the mainstream population about sensitivity and tolerance of minorities and their culture. This incident and that of the Ghotki mob violence just go to show that we have a long way to go as a more tolerant, diverse and safe society for minorities.

While it’s great that the man responsible for the Nankana Sahib incident has apologized, is it truly enough? Let us know in the comments.
