AMRITSAR : A controversial video has appeared on social networking site Facebook showing Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (PSGPC) president Sham Singh patting the back of Kashmiri separatists and stating that PSGPC has always been extending warm welcome to Kashmiri Sikhs.
"Muslims of Kashmir may or may not vote for Pakistan but Kashmiri Sikhs will first vote for Pakistan, we have worked hard for past 11 years , ever since the formation of PSGPC," said Sham Singh in the video that has gone viral on the net. Sham Singh whose credentials of being a Sikh have always been questioned has been shown addressing a meeting.
In the video, he has said that Pakistan High Commission in India had cancelled visa of 500 Kashmiri Sikhs who wanted to visit Pakistan on the occasion of birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev, Sikh's first master. He said there have been talks of giving Most Favoured Nation status to India by Pakistan. "Because of this reason Kashmiri Sikhs had been denied visa," he said.
The controversial president of PSGPC has also asked the Pakistan government to stop importing chicken feed from India claiming that it has traces of pork. He said people here see and fondly eat healthy chickens but they didn't know that the chicken had been fed on chicken feed imported from India which contains pork.
"Let's vow not to eat any chicken for one month that is fed on the chicken feed imported from India," he exhorted. Sham Singh had earlier been in controversies for giving shelter to Indian Sikh ultras's seeking refuge in Pakistan and exploiting Sikh religious sentiments on the directions of Pakistan's intelligence agency ISI through the platform of Pakistan Evacuee Trust Property Board that was once headed by ISI chief Javed Nasir.
Intelligence sources are of view that Sham Singh could have given such a statement in support of Kashmir Sikh's since Sikh militants Manjit Singh alias Pinka and Ranjit Singh Nita both hail from J&K and were currently in Pakistan.
