The management should have refrained.’’

BJP leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa tweeted, “We had objected to the appointment of a non-Sikh person as the CEO of PMU Kartarpur Corridor in 2021. Since the management board has no knowledge of Sikh Maryada, we were afraid that there might be blasphemous actions inside the gurdwara complex. Our fear has come true.”

He said the PMU should be immediately dissolved. “The government of Pakistan should hand over the management of Gurdwara Sahib to a Sikh body that adheres to Sikhi ethos.”Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee , general secretary Jagdip Singh Kahlon also condemned the incident and urged the Pakistan government to act against those responsible. “Unacceptable! I strongly condemn the sacrilegious incident within the sacred premises of Gurdwara Sri Kartarpur Sahib,” Kahlon posted on X.
