New Delhi:  Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) president Manjinder Singh Sirsa wrote to Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Friday urging him to ensure the safety of Sikh community members, a day after a woman principal and a teacher were killed in Srinagar city.

Citing the killing of the principal and the teacher on Thursday, he said they were killed because they belonged to minority communities (Sikh and Hindu).

“Safety of minorities in the Valley should be on the priority list of the government and their grievances should be addressed by the Union Territory government immediately,” the letter by Sirsa read.

“While we demand security from the government for Sikhs in Kashmir; we reiterate that Sikhs won’t leave the Valley, come what may!” Sirsa posted on Twitter.
