The Austrian news agency APA reported a brawl in a Viennese Sikh house of worship today. Apparently, attendees belonging to a particular sect took exception to a sermon being delivered and attacked two visiting gurus with knives and a pistol. Both gurus were taken to hospital in critical condition. In all, at least sixteen people were injured in the fight.
The fight had repercussions as far away as the Indian state of Punjab, where followers of the wounded gurus resorted to violence, with threats of more violence and strikes on Monday.
As I always say, faith is a wonderful thing as long as you don’t follow it too religiously.
