Advocate Dhami urged the US-based Sikh organisations to come forward to ensure punishment to the culprits of this incident so that no one would dare to commit such a crime in the future.

The SGPC president said Punjabis, especially Sikhs, had made a great contribution to the progress of the USA and the Sikhs had great respect for the people of every community.
