“In a significant development, Mr. Mopi Muta Faqir, Deputy Transport
Minister, Afghanistan, today said the Sikhs in his country had refused
to get the kar seva [voluntary work in the context of renovating
religious shrines] of their shrines done by the Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara
Parbandhak Committee [P.S.G.P.C.]. Mr. Faqir said Afghani Sikhs were
of the view that the S.G.P.C. had the sole right to conduct the
renovation work of the gurdwaras. It may be mentioned here the
S.G.P.C. had taken up the matter of kar seva [for Afghanistan shrines]
with the Prime Minister, Mr. Atal Behari Vajpayee.”
