Leadership of the Sikh community claimed that multiple incidents of desecration of their holy book have taken place in Sindh over the past few weeks, but the provincial and federal governments are not calling for any notice to catch the perpetrators.

The protesters, carrying posters and banners and chanting slogans against the incident, prepared a surprise first appearance into the Parliament House premises, leaving police guessing about why and from where the protesters barged in.

Crossing all barricades, the protesters first entered the Parliament House parking area, prompting police to fire tear-gas shells, only to no help.

The Sikh community men got hold of a little stage set up for the parliamentarian to speak to media persons.

Few of them spoke from the rostrum and hurriedly narrated the incident.
They vowed not to evacuate the Parliament House premises unless higher authorities come to learn them and satisfy their needs.

Examples of the Sikh community also called for protection in Sindh and other towns of Pakistan.
