Chandigarh, Feb 21 (Language) Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) chief Sukhbir Singh Badal on Sunday asked the central government to clarify why it did not allow some devotees to visit Nankana Sahib in Pakistan. At the same time, SAD said the move was “an attack on the community.” Singh also questioned Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh as to why he did not raise the issue of non-sanction to the central government. In fact, a group of pilgrims led by Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Harpreet Singh had to travel to Pakistan from 18 February to 25 February to mark the centenary of the Nankana Sahib massacre.

Sukhbir Singh tweeted and asked the Central Government to explain why he refused to allow the batch just a day before the visit.
