Islamabad, Sep 8: The Pakistani Sikh community has threatened to launch a countrywide agitation if the government fails to provide security to them, media reported on Monday.

All Pakistan Hindu Rights Movement chairman Haroon Sarb Diyal Sunday expressed concern over the targeted killing of members of the Sikh community, Dawn online reported.

Janmohan Singh, leader of the local Sikhs, said that one of his relatives was killed by unknown assailants inside his shop at Shaheedan Bazaar last Wednesday.

"This was the sixth or seventh case of killing of our community members in a targeted attack and the government has failed so far to arrest the killers and take effective steps for providing us with security," he said.

Another Sikh trader Har Jeet Singh was shot dead on Saturday in Peshawar.

Janmohan asked the government to bring reforms so they could send their representatives to assemblies through elections.
