Sikh nonconformists kept on blocking streets in Punjab’s Malwa locale on Sunday to challenge against the contamination of Guru Granth Sahib, the heavenly sacred text of Sikh religion.The barricade, be that as it may, was diminished to one area in every region from Sunday rather than a few areas.

Challenge pioneers said the street bar would be from 10.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. with the goal that conventional individuals, especially driv

rs, don’t endure much inconvenience.The dissenters conveyed dark banners and notices and displayed swords and sticks.

The bar, in the previous week, had influenced life in Malwa area. The most noticeably bad hit were Moga, Faridkot and Bathinda areas, police said.The challenges, called by radical Sikh gatherings, are against the profaning of the Guru Granth Sahib. The dissenters need activity against those included in the despoiling.
