Haridwar SSP Arun Mohan Joshi claimed the police were not preventing the Sikhs, but "identifying and stopping such persons who could pose a threat to communal harmony". "Only a dialogue can solve the issue of gurdwara and it is underway with a committee looking into the case," he added.
When contacted, SGPC chief Avtar Singh Makkar said that SGPC had been "repeatedly" writing to the Uttarakhand government to declare the historical site near Har ki Pauri as a memorial and provide land for the construction of the gurdwara. Makkar, however, said he was not sure whether the gurdwara was demolished during the 1984 riots.
