Pak allows pro-Khalistan Gopal Chawla to mix with Indian pilgrims in Kartarpur Sahib
AMRITSAR: The Pakistani government's claims about not allowing anti-Indian elements to operate from its ground were exposed on Sunday when Pakistan's pro-Jalistan face Gopal Singh Chawla received free access to meet at the Kartapur Sahib complex on Sunday during the celebrations organized by the Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee of Pakistan (PSGPC) to commemorate the anniversary of the birth of Guru Gobind Singh.
According to sources, the Evacuated Fiduciary Property Board of Pakistan (ETPB), which, according to intelligence sources, is under the direct command of the ISI, allowed Chawla to lead the functions, address the meeting and meet with Indian pilgrims.
Chawla has close ties with the mastermind of terror and many other militants for their ravings against India, so it is essential for the ISI to use it as an anti-Indian Sikh face of Pakistan, and has been awarded several benefits. source said.
India had strongly opposed the inclusion of Chawla in the 10-member PSGPC announced on March 27, 2019 by former Pakistani federal minister for information and transmission Chaudhry Fawad Hussain.
However, the Pakistani government relented to pressure from India and dissolved the committee and withdrew Chawla from the PSGPC, but then promoted it by including him as an unofficial member of ETPB on April 19, which led India to give a Verbal speech to Pakistan through diplomatic channels. This led the Pakistani government to issue a statement that Chawla's membership had been notified.
According to sources, Chawla delivered a poisonous speech against India during the show.
Chawla was also present in Gurdwara on Saturday during the visit of Islamic scholars and religious leaders, with the aim of restoring confidence among the Sikhs of Pakistan after the frantic protest and stoning of the Gurdwara.
Meanwhile, ETPB spokesman Amir Hashmi said a religious procession took place at the Kartarpur Sahib gurdwara complex, which was attended by Indian pilgrims.
