Amritsar Golden Temple sacrilege incident: Shiromani Akali Dal president Sukhbir Singh Badal on Saturday expressed "shock and disbelief at the most heinous outrage of the attempt to commit sacrilege at the highest and the holiest shrine Sachkhand Shri Harmandir Sahib."

In a statement here, Sukhbir Singh Badal said that it was impossible to believe that this could be the act of just one person. "There clearly is a deep-rooted conspiracy behind it. Never since the Mughals, the Masands, and Operation Bluestar has the sanctity of Shri Harmandir Sahib been made the target of such outrage. This is beyond belief."
