Mangalore Today

February 23: A Sikh protest was carried out in Jammu-Pathankot national highway on Tuesday. Some local Sikh organizations have called for Jammu bandh.

The youth, identified as Jaspal Singh, is believed to be one among three Sikhs, all of them Pakistani citizens, who were kidnapped from the country’s violent North West province tribal belt.


Protests took place in Amritsar on February 22. Here, we see the Border Security Force personnel stand guard and watch a burning effigy of Pakistan-based Taliban militants during a protest by members of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) at the India-Pakistan Wagah Border.


Taranjit Singh, relative of beheaded Sikh, Jaspal Singh speaks to the media on his way back to Pakistan after the news of the killing of Jaspal by Taliban in Pakistan’s restive Orkazai agency, at the India-Pakistan Wagah Border on Monday.


Protests also happened near the Pakistan Embassy in New Delhi on Monday as members of the Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) shouted slogans.


Allahabad also saw protests on Monday. Here, we see Indian activists burn a photograph of Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani. The protest took place after the decapitated bodies of two Sikhs were found almost a month after they were kidnapped in Pakistan’s Khyber tribal region, officials said on Monday.


New Delhi condemned the "barbaric act", which came just days before India and Pakistan are to resume dialogue for the first time since the Mumbai attacks in November 2008, which suspended peace talks between the arch rivals.
