Condemning the murder of Sikh-Canadian woman Rajvinder Kaur Gill and the beheading of Mohinder Singh in Pakistan, the Sikhs in the US on Thursday demanded protection of minorities in that country.
In a statement, United Sikhs — a Sikh advocacy group — demanded that the government protect minorities in Pakistan and pay compensation to the families of the victims. It also called on the government in Pakistan to secure the safety of minorities.
Tawheedul Islam, a pro-government militia of Zakhakhel tribesmen in Pakistan's lawless tribal belt, claimed responsibility for the beheading of 40-year-old Singh, whom it accused of acting as a "spy" for a rival outfit.
Singh was kidnapped from his shop in Tabbai village of Khyber Agency by unidentified armed men on November 20, 2012.
