The family members of Srinagar's Sikh daughter Manmeet Kaur said thank you to everyone for welcoming her daughter so enthusiastically. Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee (DSGMC) chief Manjinder Singh Sirsa shared a photo on social media saying that Manmeet Kaur has come to Delhi with Sangat to seek his blessings. Manjinder Singh tweeted that he along with Manmeet Kaur, a Sikh daughter from Kashmir who forcibly converted, bowed at Gurudwara Bangla Sahib. He said his family fought for faith and withdrew the girl. Manmeet Kaur has come to Delhi to seek the blessings of Guru Sahib and thank Sangat for his support.
Meanwhile, Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee (SGPC) chief Jagir Kaur said it is a big issue. Harbhinder Singh, in charge of the Jammu and Kashmir Sikh Mission of SGPC, along with other members and Manjinder Singh Sirsa, head of the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee, were constantly trying for this. Jagir Kaur said the family has heaved a sigh of relief from Manmeet Kaur's return home. It is expected that the second girl Dhanmeet Kaur will also be brought back soon. The government should enact strict laws against conversion in Jammu and Kashmir to prevent such incidents in the future.
