Taliban stop 60 Afghan Sikhs from leaving for India with holy book

A group of Afghan Sikhs who were to leave for India on September 11 were stopped from taking the Guru Granth Sahib along with them as the religious scriptures were cited to be the heritage of Afghanistan. Amritsar-based Sikh Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee president Harjinder Singh Dhami called the Taliban government’s decision a “direct interference in the religious affairs of Sikhs”.
