He said, “The Punjabi society stands as a beacon of communal harmony and brotherhood among people of all religions, but Channi was told to leave from a religious place due to his conduct.”

During his attendance at the Eid-ul-Fitr prayers, Channi was asked by attendees to leave, prompting him to relocate to the rear row.

Chaudhary said that religion should never be mixed with politics and the people of Jalandhar were intelligent enough to reject the politics of appeasement.
