Chandigarh/ Punjab (August 12, 2014): The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) has sought the “intervention” of the government of India in taking up the issue of recent hate crimes against Sikhs in various countries.

The SGPC has written to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking his government’s intervention in the matter.
