Charsada; January 24, 2014. (PCP) A Sikh community member resident of Dabgari was gunned down in Tangi Bazar, Charsada, in broad day light in KPK province of Pakistan

, bordering Afghanistan, on evening of January 22, 2014, by Islamic extremists. Sardar Bagwan Singh who was Hakeem by profession and practicing medicine over decades in Charsada district became victim of target killers when he was coming home at 4; 00 PM. Sardar Bagwan Singh left behind mourning wife, three daughters and three sons. Hundreds of Sikh community members living in tribal belt of Pakistan migrated to India after year 2009 when Talaban took control of FATA and impose Islamic taxation on them. The creeping terror of Talban in KPK province of Pakistan forced hundreds more Sikh community members also to migrate to India after 2010. The Sikh community was notable business community in Afghanistan, FATA and KPK province of Pakistan from centuries and speaking Pushtu like Muslims but situation changed when Talban took control of Afghanistan which forced them first to leave Afghanistan and after 2002 from FATA when it became safe haven of Talban. There have been incidents of killing of Sikhs in Peshawar and to vandalize their worship places but they preferred to stay in their homes of ancestors in these parts of Pakistan. The killing of Sardar Bagwan Singh spread fear among tiny minority community of Sikhs in KPK province of Pakistan.
