SRINAGAR Members of the Sikh community on Monday staged a protest against hurting the religious sentiments of a senior journalist Amrit pal Singh.
Singh was harassed and his turban was touched and frisked by the police personnel deployed outside National Conference (NC) headquarters here a few days ago when the party president Dr. Farooq Abdullah was scheduled to address a press conference.
Sikh community members and members from Gurudwara district Budgam Committee assembled at Srinagars press enclave and chanted slogans against the action of police personnel.
According to reports, the protesters condemned the act, demanding that the involved police personnel be dealt with strictly.
They also said Sikh students who recently appeared in NEET examinations in Jammu examination centres were forcibly asked to keep their Kirpan out of the examination halls, thus hurting the sentiments of minority community.
