Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) president and Akali Dal MLA Manjinder Singh Sirsa alleged that the attack on Gurdwara Nankana Sahib was an attempt to convert gurdwaras into mosques. He said, “Sikhs had fought against Mughals. They have a glorious history of fighting tyrant Muslim rulers such as Aurangzeb, Zakriya Khan, and Wazir Khan. It was Sikh warrior General Bhagel Singh who was responsible for the end of the Mughal rule in India. This history will repeat itself if Pakistan failed to act in Gurdwara Nankana Sahib case.
