BJP attacks govt over Sikhs’ beheading in Pak

The BJP on Sunday strongly condemned the beheading of Sikhs by Taliban in North-West Frontier Province of Pakistan.



New Delhi: The BJP on Sunday strongly condemned
the beheading of Sikhs by Taliban in North-West Frontier
Province of Pakistan and termed the attitude of Indian
government in the matter as "callous" for not putting
diplomatic pressure in time to get the abducted Sikhs
released.

"BJP strongly condemns this dastardly massacre of
minority Sikh community in Pakistan. This shows how minorities
are treated with contempt in Pakistan. They were not given any
security," BJP spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad said.

He also criticised the Indian government, alleging it
was being soft towards Pakistan while dealing with such
matters.

"What is truly worrisome is the callous attitude of
the Government of India. These Sikhs were abducted for
sometime. What kind of diplomatic pressure did India bring on
Pakistan to secure their release," Prasad said.

Initial reports said some Sikhs had been abducted by
the Taliban in Pakistan for ransom.

While two were beheaded, some were said to be still in
the custody of the Taliban.

"India has almost begged for a dialogue with Pakistan
and yet is so cruelly indifferent to the barbaric terrorism
being meted out to the innocent Sikh community in Pakistan,"
Prasad said.
