"It is very painful to see that incident has happened, I have full faith in law authorities. We want to spread peace and love. We have received no threats as it is a congregation as for spiritual activities, there is no question of terror angle," he said.
"I have no suspicion on anyone, why would anyone threaten something which spreads the message of love and peace. We pray for those who took out the attack they may receive better judgement and use their energy for constructive work," he added.
The chief minister of Punjab Amarinder Singh has said that he believes it is a terror attack, and suspects ISI hand in it.

We will get to the bottom of this. In future we will take care that all congregation are protected," Singh added.
