Curb gun culture: Sikh community to US ambassador

New Delhi: The Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee has appealed to the US government to curb the gun culture and expose the conspiracy behind shooting in a letter to the US ambassador Nancy Powell who visited Gurudwara Bangla Sahib on Monday afternoon.

Ambassador Powell attended a condolence prayer meeting at Bangla Sahib for victims of the shootout at a Gurudwara in Wisconsin on Sunday morning. Six people were killed and three others critically injured, according to reports, after a gunman opened fire on them.

The committee strongly condemned the “inhuman act of killing innocent people at a place of worship” and urged the US government to take steps to prevent such incidents in future.

“The letter was received personally by the Ambassador at the Bangla Sahib. As far as more details on the victims, we are still waiting. We are in touch with gurudwara in US. We are getting a lot of phone calls from people abroad.  We will now be visiting the families of the victims.”

Four of the seven victims belong to West Delhi. Identities of three have so far been ascertained.

Here's the letter:
