In a shocking incident, a young girl with patriotic fervor was humiliated and denied entry into the revered Golden Temple.
The girl’s face was painted with the colors of the Indian national flag, which apparently didn’t sit well with a staffer at the shrine. In a video that has now gone viral, the staffer is seen rudely denying the girl entry, spouting the outrageous claim that “this isn’t India, this is Punjab”.
The incident has sparked outrage across the country, with many condemning the blatant display of prejudice and narrow-mindedness.
The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee General Secretary has since apologized for the shameful incident, but the damage has already been done. Will justice be served for this unpardonable act of discrimination?
A few days later due to possible fear of attack by the Khalistanis, both the young girl and her father apologised for raising a question for not being allowed into the Golden Temple in Amritsar for wearing the tricolour paint on her cheeks and protesting against the preposterous statement by a staffer brazenly saying “This is Punjab and not India”. Both the father and young daughter apologised for unknowingly hurting religious sentiments, if any.
