A similar incident has now been reported from come up from Lahore, Pakistan’s cultural capital, where the first ever Sikh police officer of Pakistan has alleged that he had been forcibly evicted from his Lahore house.

In a shocking turn of events, Gulab Singh was appointed as a police officer in Lahore’s Dera Chahal area. Being the first Sikh police officer of Pakistan, he had big hopes from his job. However, Gulab Singh would never have imagined that he would be victimized by the local police officers. Incidentally, the Sikh police officer was harassed by the local officers from the Dera Chahal area in Lahore, after which his turban was forcibly opened and hair was untied.

 

 

Gulab Singh claims that this attack has been ordered by the officials of the parent body of the Pakistan Sikh Gurudwara Parbandhak Committee, the Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB). Later, his family was evicted out of the house and the house was locked from outside.

 

 

Gulab Singh released a statement to the media saying:

 

“This is how Sikhs are treated in Pakistan. I am being targeted. I was dragged out of my own house, my turban was opened. My faith has been disrespected.”
