Taliban removes Sikh religious flag from historic gurdwara in Afghanistan, India condemns the incident
The Paktia Gurdwara is of immense significance to the Sikh community as it is believed that the site was visited by Guru Nanak himself.
The two Pakistan proxies in Afghanistan - Aslam Farooqui led ISKP and the Taliban deputy leader Sirajuddin Haqqani-led Haqqani network - which had often targeted each other in the past had taken some steps to work together recently. The two groups had jointly carried out attacks on Gurudwara in Kabul in March, as per reports.
