India to take up gurdwara issue with Pak
New Delhi, Dec 18: External Affair Minister, SM Krishna said on Friday, Dec 18, that India is going to take up the issue of gurdwara land transfer with Pakistan.

"We will certainly take it up with the concerned authorities in Pakistan," Krishna said in response to the question raised by BJP leader SS Ahluwalia in the Rajya Sabha.

Criticizing Pakistan's action, Krishna said that Pakistan will not even hesitate to sell Panja Sahib, which still holds the hand imprint of first Sikh guru, Guru Nanak.

Krishna said that Pakistan should be made to answer so that the the minorities in the land are safeguarded.

"The government should summon the Pakistani ambassador and take a commitment that the property of minorities like Sikh, Hindus and Sindhis will be protected."
