Rahul Gandhi condemns mob attack on Nankana Sahib Gurdwara

An angry mob of Muslim residents of Nankana Sahib in Pakistan stormed Gurdwara Nankana Sahib, the birthplace of Sikh’s first master Guru Nanak Dev, on Friday following resentment against Sikh's opposition to the alleged ‘forcible’ conversion of a Sikh girl and her marriage to a Muslim boy. Punjab CM Amarinder Singh appealed Pakistan PM to "immediately intervene".
