India on Wednesday pulled up Pakistan for violating the UN resolution on Culture of Peace passed in 2019 and arbitrarily transferring the management of the Sikh holy shrine – Kartarpur Sahib Gurudwara, from the Sikh Community to the control of a non-Sikh body.
Speaking at the 75th Session of the United Nations General Assembly, First Secretary Ashish Sharma said, “Pakistan has already violated the earlier resolution on Culture of Peace passed last year by this very assembly.”
“Last month, Pakistan arbitrarily transferred the management of the Sikh holy shrine – Kartarpur Sahib Gurudwara, from Sikh Community body, to the administrative control of a non-Sikh body,” he said.
Pakistan in November this year had unilaterally transferred the management and maintenance of the Gurudwara Kartarpur Sahib away from the Pakistan Sikh Gurudwara Prabhandhak Committee (PSGPC), a body run by the minority Sikh Community, to the administrative control of the Evacuee Trust Property Board.
In response, India had summoned Charge d’ Affaires (CDA) of Pakistan High Commission and lodged its strong protest over Islamabad’s unilateral decision to transfer of management and maintenance of the Kartarpur Sahib.
