My punjabi colleague mentioned about this outburst of violence.

This Dera Sacha Sauda religious group have their own set of followers in Punjab. Sikhs firmly believe Guru Gobind Singh as the last Guru of Sikhism. In a campaign lately this Dera guy appeared as Guru Gobind Singh in posters & advertisements all over. He posed like him & even his attire resembled the last guru of Sikhism.

This infuriated many orthodox Sikhs, who accused him of insulting Guru Gobind Singh. This has now lead to protests & violence all across the state.
