After a mob attacked Gurdwara Nankana Sahib in Pakistan, the country said, "The Gurdwara remains untouched and undamaged." "Attempts to paint this incident as a communal issue are patently motivated," Pakistan added. The altercation happened over a minor incident at a tea-stall and authorities immediately intervened and arrested the accused, it further said.
Foreign Office in a midnight statement said the provincial authorities in the Punjab province have informed that there was a scuffle in the city of Nankana Sahib on Friday between two Muslim groups.
