'I am treated like a dog': pro-Khalistani leader Gopal Singh Chawla

Former Chief of Pakistan Sikh Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee (PSGPC) and a pro-Khalistani leader, who was removed recently from a panel linked to the Kartarpur Corridor, has alleged Pakistan government of treating him like a dog. Chawla recently hoisted Nishan Sahib at Gurudwara Shaheed Bhai Taru Singh at Naulakha Bazar in Lahore. While addressing a gathering of Sikh devotes at the historical place he showed anger towards Pakistan government and said that despite all the sacrifices made by him he was booted out from the panel. After his removal from the committee, Gopal Chawla started exposing Pakistan's discriminatory policies against the Sikhs. He, along with other Sikhs gathered at the Gurudwara Shaheed Bhai Taru Singh and revealed its dilapidated condition. He accused neighbouring Muslim residents of encroaching Gurudwara property and destroying the Nishan Sahib, a Sikh religious symbol. He threatened to launch a massive campaign if the gurudwara property was not returned back. There are several historical gurudwaras in Pakistan which remain in dilapidated condition.
