The Japanese Mediterranean has been rocked by rising tensions among an Islamist, expansionist Turkey led by its President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and the Cradle of Western Civilization, Greece. When Turkey was praying in Hagia Sophia, Greece was in mourning, Church flags were flown at half-mast, and Church bells tolled in Greece as Turkey carried out Islamic prayers in the Byzantine era cathedral, now turned into a mosque.
A few times immediately after Turkey transformed the controversial structure into a mosque, two males in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan laid claim more than a historic Gurudwara in Lahore. In the past several months, the individuals and govt of Pakistan dumped the ideological guru Saudi Arabia- which is little by little getting to be reasonable- for a additional radical and vocal Turkey which is remaining led by charismatic Islamist chief. Thus, taking a lesson from Turkey, Pakistani people want to convert Gurdwara Shahidi Asthan, a historical gurdwara where by Bhai Taru Ji created the supreme sacrifice in 1745, into a mosque.
The video, in which Pakistani adult males had been threatening people of Sikh Neighborhood and ended up saying above the historical gurudwara, has gone viral over the internet.
The assert on Gurudwara by Islamic extremists has led to a very robust response from the Indian govt. “A sturdy protest was lodged with the Pakistan Higher Fee today on the documented incident whereby Gurdwara Shahidi Asthan, web page of martyrdom of Bhai Taru Singh ji at Naulakha Bazaar in Lahore, Pakistan has been claimed as the put of Masjid Shahid Ganj and tries are becoming created to convert it to a mosque,” Overseas Ministry spokesperson Anurag Srivastava reported in a assertion.
The Pakistani govt have to not ignore that it may possibly consider to imitate Turkey but India is not Greece. If the Indian federal government can carry out CAA for the safeguard of Hindus and Sikhs in Pakistan, scrap Report 370, then it can also acquire ideal action against Pakistan for its misadventures.

The Sikh neighborhood in India has registered a very powerful protest against what is happening in Pakistan. “Strongly condemn tries becoming designed to transform holy Gurdwara Sri Shahidi Asthan in Lahore, web page of martyrdom of Bhai Taru Singh Ji, into mosque. Urge @DrSJaishankar to express Punjab’s concerns in strongest phrases to Pakistan to safeguard all Sikh destinations of reverence,” tweeted Captain Amarinder Singh, CM of Sikh vast majority point out of Punjab.
Due to the fact the working day Turkish President spoke in opposition to the scrapping of Post 370 by India, Pakistan has uncovered a new messiah. PM Imran Khan has already acknowledged Erdogan as new Khalifa and trying to boost Turkish tradition in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Turkish Television set exhibit Ertrugul, which builds myths of Islamic golden age through the Ottoman Empire, has damaged all documents of Tv viewership in Pakistan.
Primary Minister Imran Khan individually urged all Pakistanis to watch Ertrugul to understand “Islamic values” and “culture”, He said that “third hand culture” is currently being promoted in Pakistan through Hollywood and Bollywood.
“Unfortunately, I have to say that I am seeing that as a result of Bollywood….30-40 a long time back even in Bollywood, you would not see these types of points. Now there is so a great deal dirt in it. They have adopted the worst of Hollywood’s attributes. But they never clearly show the power of their very own legacy. Our little ones are being incredibly negatively afflicted by this,” he stated.
Having said that, Imran Khan will have to not overlook that India will not dismiss Pakistan’s provocations like Greece did that of Turkey. Greece is not responding to Turkish provocations. What Athens is performing is plain and uncomplicated armed forces posturing, in the experience of a hostile Turkey. This ‘no-initially-fireplace-policy’ is antagonistic to Greece’s sovereign pursuits. The concept that Greece is supplying is that it is completely ready for a conflict. Athens is ready for Erdoğan to make the up coming transfer. But the Turkish President is by now having to do what he wishes- drilling and exploration in Greece’s Continental Shelf and humiliating them by converting Greek Orthodox Church’s oldest web site into a mosque.
However, on the other hand, India responded to Uri as effectively as Pulwama with even bigger use of pressure, and if Pakistan makes it possible for the conversion of Gurudwara, it could possibly end up getting rid of Lahore too.
