Hindu Temple in Poonch, built by a Sikh

Poonch (J&K), May 27 (ANI): Bestowed with myriad faiths, casts, creeds and religions, India has incredibly kept its unity alive. A glimpse of it was recently witnessed in the Poonch district of Jammu & Kashmir, where people of various faiths came to attend the annual celebration at Lohar Devta shrine. Standing as a symbol of communal harmony, the temple of lohar devta today has its devotees in the areas of Poonch, Rajouri, Sunderbani, Nowshera and Jammu, who get to assemble here mostly during the annual commemorations. The temple also has a langar hall, where people irrespective of their caste and community sit together and enjoy the meal. As the annual celebrations held in the temple are quite big, security personals also make it a point to remain alert at the site to avoid any nuisance. This annual celebration at lohar devta is playing a key role in strengthening the bond between different communities who directly or indirectly contribute their bit, especially the Muslims who do almost all the arrangements for its successful conduct.

Khalistan movement suffers setback; NIA

New Delhi/ Mumbai (Maharashtra), May 27: In a major blow to the secessionists dreaming for a separate homeland in India, three of the Khalistan accused apprehended in separate incidents, earlier this year and in 2018 were chargesheeted by National Investigation Agency (or NIA) in a special court in Mumbai. Harpal Singh, Mohiuddin Siddiqui and Gurjeet Singh Nijjar — have been charged under sections of the Indian Penal Code, as well as sections of the Bombay/Maharashtra Police Act and Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act. Although the police had arrested them at different time in different locations, they were being instructed by a single operative who was working at the behest of his masters in Canada, United Kingdom and Pakistan.   Experts say that the movement doesn’t garner any support in India. The secessionists, experts say have lost all the traction amongst the mass especially the youth of Punjab, whom they consider their prime target. Islamabad, the perpetrator of terror, has been pumping in huge amounts of money to guide and influence these radicals and has been instrumental in breeding an anti-India sentiment amongst these people. For years, Pakistan has been relentlessly providing logistics and weaponry support to the brainwashed youth of Punjab to foment trouble in India. However, to its disappointment, all of its nefarious plots against India have been failed by the vigilant law enforcement agencies.
