Bhai Atar Singh, who is serving as a Kathavachak in Gurdwara Jyoti Saroop Sahib (Fatehgarh Sahib), reportedly got attacked by some people in village Jhanjeri on August 31. It is learnt that the incident occurred when Bhai Atar Singh tried to stop the people dancing on vulgar songs running over DJ inside the premises of Gurdwara Sahib.

Sharing the details of incident, SGPC spokesperson Kulwinder Singh Ramdas informed that Bhai Atar Singh was returning from Mohali to Fatehgarh Sahib last night when he noticed some people dancing over vulgar songs inside the premises of Gurdwara Sahib in village Jhanjeri.

Feeling it his duty to stop the violation of the Sikh code of conduct, Bhai Atar Singh tried to convince the dancing people to stop violating the code of conduct inside Gurdwara Sahib but the concerned people launched attack on him. During this attack, the sacred Kakaars worn by him got disrespected and his car also got damaged.

Taking strong notice of this unfortunate incident, the SGPC president Gobind Singh Longowal has raised questions over the day by day worsening law and order situation in Punjab. He has demanded strong action against all the elements involved in attacking the Kathavachak. Meanwhile, it is learnt that an FIR has been registered on Police station Majaat which falls in Sohana police constituency.
