Muslims Demolish Gurdwara In Punjab to Build a Mosque...

My question is this, where's the SGPC? or the AKALI DAL????!! Aren't they supposed to be championing the cause of Sikhs? and this is happening in LUDHIANA of all places...
Tension gripped Meena Bazaar this afternoon following incidents of some people who reportedly tried to demolish a gurdwara to set up a mosque.

In his complaint to Division Number 4 police, Kuldeep Singh, president of Meena Bazaar Shopkeepers’ Association, said that on the night of April 26, Iqraar Ali, Pillar and some other people of the area demolished the gurdwara in the market. “A tree on the premises of the gurdwara was chopped and the Guru Granth Sahib was removed from its place,” Singh said.

Ludhiana Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Manjit Singh Dhesi reached the spot and tried to pacify the people gathered there.

Representatives of various bodies including Pawan Garg of Shiv Sena Bal Thackeray, Swarn Singh of Akalgarh Market Association and Kuldeep Singh of Meena Bazaar Shopkeepers’ Association had gathered at the spot. Meanwhile, police have booked Iqraar Ali, Pillar and others for hurting the religious sentiments of the people and demolishing the structure.
