Khanna MLA Gurkirat Singh Kotli with Baldev Kumar (white turban).
Khanna, September 11, 2019: Khanna MLA Gurkirat Singh Kotli today met former MLA of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) party Baldev Kumar here today.
Kumar (43) is seeking political asylum in India saying minorities including Hindus and Sikhs are being prosecuted in Pakistan and he and his family don’t feel safe there.
Kotli, during interaction with Kumar, appealed to Government of India to grant asylum to him and his family on humanitarian grounds.
The former MLA from Barikot in Khyber Pakhtun Khwa (KPK) assembly of the ruling party said, “When even Muslims are not secure in Pakistan, how would Sikhs like me be secure there.”
