Withdraw UNESCO proposal: WSC to Indian govt article:

The "US-based World Sikh Council (WSC) on Monday urged the Indian government to withdraw its proposal to UNESCO on declaring Golden Temple as the World Heritage Site...........

"'The status of Sri Darbar Sahib in Sikh religion is similar to that of the Kaaba in Islam and the Vatican in Roman Catholicism. Kaaba is not a Saudi Arabian cultural site but the centre of Islam, the Vatican is not an Italian cultural entity but the centre of the Roman Catholic Church,' WSC, a representative of Sikh institutions of America, said."
