American Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee co ordinator Pritpal Singh states that an unidentified person tore up Sukhmani Sahib Gutka in a popular square in Union City park in California in front of public.
“This is a popular place where people often meet and this person came, showed Gutka to everyone, and tore it up in front of them,” he said adding that immediately city’s Mayor and police officials arrived at the scene to investigate into the incident.
Dozens of Sikhs assembled in the city to protest against the desecration. California mayor Eric Garcetti arrived at the site, along with top police officials to assure the Sikh community of penal action to be taken against the miscreants who have attempted to hurt their religious sentiments.
