COLOGNE: A Gurdwara has been vandalised with racist graffiti by unidentified people in Cologne. The graffiti message written in German on the Gurdwara’s main gate states “MUST GO”.

The matter has been reported to have been taken up by the German authorities, with the protection to the Gurdwara being reassured.

The incident has invited both condemnation and concern from Sikhs across the world. On April 16, 2016, the Gurdwara Nanksar Sat Sang Darbar in Essen, Germany was subject to an ISIS terrorist bombing which took place after a wedding ceremony injuring three people and causing considerable damage.
