He wrote on @HardeepSPuri: “Vandalism, stone-pelting and acts of descrecation at the holiest of holy Sri Nankana Sahib Gurdwara yesterday should be an eye-opener for those who refuse to recognise religious persecution of minorities in Pakistan & the rationale behind the Citizenship Amendment Act.”

He also tweeted: “These shameful incidents clearly highlight the threats which minorities face to their right to practice their religion.

“As an Indian & a Sikh, I call upon those who turn a blind eye to these injustices & persecution insensitive, inhuman and certainly not secular.”

The Union Minister also retweeted a post from former cricketer and BJP MP Gautam Gambhir who had posted a clip of Friday’s incident at the Nankana Sahib gurdwara and tweeted: “Death threats and stone-pelting on innocent tourists to support forcible conversion of a girl! This is Pakistan and that is why #IndiaSupportsCAA.”

“Meanwhile, Pakistan Army’s puppet is busy making a fool of himself by tweeting fake videos.”
