Gurpatwant Singh Pannun says Indian govt has no right to stop any one from visiting the Golden Temple.
A US-based Sikh rights group has condemned India for not allowing Advisor to Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz to visit the Golden Temple during Heart of Asia Conference in Amritsar.
Legal advisor to the Sikhs for Justice organisation Gurpatwant Singh Pannun said in a statement that Indian government has no right to stop any one from visiting the Golden Temple as this violates the fundamental tenets of Sikhism.
He said the Golden Temple was attacked by Indian government in June 1984 resulting in the massacre of thousands of pilgrims.
The Golden Temple is a religious place of Sikhs and was founded in 1577 by the fourth Sikh guru Ram Das Ji.
