Nankhana Sahib/Pakistan: A large number of Muslim protesters surrounded the holy Sikh shrine of Gurdwara Nankana Sahib on Friday afternoon, threatening to overrun the site if their demands for the release of suspects in an alleged forced conversion case were not met, according to reports in Dawn and other media. Anti-Sikh slogans were raised at the site, the birth place of Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism even as India condemned the attack.

According to Dawn,  the protesters dispersed after several hours in the evening following successful negotiations between them and government representatives, which led to the release of the arrested persons.

The Pakistani newspaper reported that the mob was led by the family of a man, Ehsan, who was accused of forcibly converting a Sikh woman, Jagjit Kaur, earlier this year.
