India protests against Pakistan’s move to convert Sikh gurdwara into mosque in Lahore

Gurudwara Shahidi Asthan Bhai Taru Ji is a historical gurudwara where Bhai Taru Ji made supreme sacrifice in 1745. India expressed its concerns in the strongest terms over an incident where an attempt was allegedly made to convert the Gurudwara ‘Shahidi Asthan’- the site of the “martyrdom of Bhai Taru Singh Ji” in 1745 – into the Masjid Shahid Ganj in Lahore. Meanwhile, 200-year old Sri Guru Singh Gurudwara in Balochistan, which was being used as a government high school for 73 years, has been handed back to the minority Sikh community after the government restored its status as a place of worship.
