AMRITSAR SAHIB, Punjab—SGPC President Prof. Kirpal Singh Badungar is seeking registration of case against the producer and director of serial ‘Taarik Mehta Ka Ulta Chashma’ of SAB TV broadcasters. Prof. Badungar held that the serial makers have hurt Sikh sentiments and their act was unforgivable.

During an episode of the ‘Taarik Mehta Ka Ulta Chashma’, an artist was shown wearing an attire similar to that worn by Guru Gobind Singh Ji. Actor who was presented like Guru Gobind Singh Ji in the TV serial is Roshan Singh Sodhi.

Speaking with Sikh24, Prof. Kirpal Singh Badungar said that the TV channel named ‘Sab TV’ was deliberately attacking on Sikh ethos to hurt sentiments of the Sikh community. Recalling a similar mistake by the same channel earlier, he has said that the ‘Sab TV’ channel had hurt Sikh sentiments by disrespecting the sacred Sikh article ‘Kirpan’ and photo of sanctum sanctorum Sri Harmandir Sahib.

Prof. Badungar has further informed that the SGPC has constituted a sub-committee to probe the matter and strict action will be taken against the guilty elements as per the report submitted by the committee.

Prof. Badungar has also asked the Indian government to indict the broadcasters of ‘Sab TV’ channel under section 295-A of Indian Penal Code (IPC).

SGPC’s General Secretary S. Amarjit Singh Chawla, SGPC’s Executive member S. Surjit Singh Bhittewind, SGPC member S. Gurbachan Singh Karmuwala and Secretary Dr. Roop Singh have been appointed in the sub-committee.
