Amirtsar: Seeking complete ban on release of Harinder Sikka’s controversial movie Nanak shah Fakkir the Shiromany Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) president Gobind Singh Longowal wrote letters to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minster Raj Nath Singh, I and B minister Simriti Irany and Punjab Chief Minster Capt. Amrinder Singh.
SGPC chief said that Harinder Sikka has adamant to release of His controversial film Nanakshah Fakkir , so we decide to approach the authorities to impose on the release of film.
Its notable that the SGPC called a meeting to review the movie , but Harinder Sikka had not attend the meeting and he announced that he will release the movie on April 13.
Gobind Singh Longowal said that the Sikh community has been raising the objections over the portrayal of first Sikh master Guru Nanak and his family members in the movie.
As per Times of India reports SGPC appointed Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh claimed on Saturday that he was not taken into loop by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) before giving the no-objection certificate (NOC) to controversial movie ‘Nanak Shah Fakir’.
Dal Khalsa spokesperson, Kanwarpal Singh said: “In 2015, the committee was set up by the SGPC to look into the movie as it violated the Sikh principles by presenting in human form the first Sikh master Guru Nanak Sahib and his family members and Bhai Mardana Ji. The Sikh principles strictly prohibit this on the lines of Islam.
Three years ago, the government had banned the film but the producer wisely agreed to withdraw the movie. Why the sub-committee allowed the violations of Sikh principles by giving the nod to the movie which is in totality needs to be rejected as it attacks the roots of the Sikhism. The SGPC leaders and the Jathedars are giving approvals and then taking U-turns from their decisions after witnessing the resentment from the community.”
