The Sikh community in Peshawar called out political parties for putting their lives in risk by using photos of their members for their election campaign.
In UC-17, candidates for PK-78 have printed some pictures of Sikh community members on their banners and posters without permission. According to the Sikhs, such acts can expose them to security risks. Gorpal Singh told Samaa Digital that their lives are already at stake and that they do not support such parties.
In May, unidentified gunmen shot dead 52-year-old Sikh rights activist Charanjeet Singh in Peshawar.
