India strongly condemned the demolition of the statue of Maharaja Ranjit Singh in Lahore Fort, saying that Pakistan has failed to fulfill its responsibilities and is creating an atmosphere of fear among the minority communities.

Referring to Pakistan’s poor record in protecting Hindus and Sikhs, BJP President JP Nadda said that the attack on the statue of Maharaja Ranjit Singh is condemnable. The silence of Pakistani officials in this matter is even worse. This leaves many wondering whether the government of Pakistan is involved in such attacks against minorities?
