In a horrifying act of violence, a Sikh shopkeeper named Manmohan Singh has been brutally killed in Peshawar. According to reports, two extremists on motorcycles targeted and fatally shot him at Rashidgarhi Bazaar in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan.

This tragic incident serves as a distressing reminder of the precarious situation faced by the Sikh minority residing in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, as it marks the second attack on a Sikh individual in less than 24 hours. Prior to this shocking event, Tarlok Singh was also targeted by assailants affiliated with the ‘Islamic State of Khorasan Province’.

The terrorists unleashed a hail of gunfire, firing at least seven rounds at Tarlok Singh. Fortunately, he managed to evade the attack and survived. It is unfateful that attacks on religious minorities, including Hindus and Sikhs, have become distressingly repetitive in Pakistan. Unfortunately, rather than taking decisive action to prevent such incidents, Pakistan has consistently failed to address the issue, allowing the assailants and radical Islamists to operate with impunity.
