    New Delhi (Sputnik): Tensions surfaced at Nankana Sahib, a historic Sikh shrine in Pakistan’s Punjab province on Friday after hundreds of people started throwing stones and threatened to destroy the building.

    On Sunday, Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan condemned the attack on the Nankana Sahib shrine, saying that there would be zero tolerance for such actions..

    ​Khan also took a swipe at Indian Prime Minster Narendra Modi for instigating violence against minorities and Muslims in India. He said that the Nankana incident was different from the ongoing attacks on Muslims across India. 

    Khan has also accused the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, a right-wing Indian organisation, of conducting public lynchings and has claimed that the Indian police are leading attacks on Muslims.

    Recently Khan was trolled for sharing a series of videos on Twitter which claimed that Indian police are attacking Muslims as part of the Modi government's ethnic cleansing. Khan questioned the world’s silence while the "fascist extremist Modi regime indulge in state terrorism". However, the videos were found to be old and filmed in Dhaka, Bangladesh rather than in India.
