Extremist attacks force minority Sikhs to flee Peshawar

Peshawar [Pakistan], June 13 (ANI): The minority Sikh community in Peshawar, Pakistan, is moving to other parts of the country following repeated attacks by Islamic fundamentalists.

More than sixty percent of Peshawar's 30,000 Sikhs have left for other parts of Pakistan or migrated to India after being forced to live under a constant threat.

Further, a member of Pakistan Sikh council (PCS) said that their community was being wiped out as they "looked different."

PCS member Balbir Singh, while talking to the media outlet, pointed towards his turban and said, "This makes us an easy target."

Further, the lands allocated to build crematorium have been given over to build a private bank, wedding hall, and a company.
