Amritsar, January 13:
Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) took strict notice of a viral video on social media in which some children through a play depicted the role of Sahibzadas of the tenth Guru in the physical form organised by the management of a school in Ahmedabad, Gujarat.
Following the orders from SGPC President S. Harjinder Singh Dhami, the pracharaks (preachers) of the Sikh Mission Gujarat under SGPC’s Dharam Prachar Committee sought clarification from the concerned school, when the school management issued a written apology.
The school management informed the SGPC pracharaks that this video is from the year 2019 but it was recently uploaded on social media by someone. The school management confessed that such an incident took place due to their lack of knowledge about the Maryada (code of conduct) and rules of the Sikh faith and they apologised to the Sikh Sangat about the same. They also said that they respect the Sikh faith and such a mistake will not be repeated in future.
SGPC President S. Harjinder Singh Dhami speaking about this issue said that yesterday (on Wednesday) when I came to know about this video, an investigation was marked into it immediately.
“During investigation, although the school management has apologised and claimed that the video was old, the people committing such acts should refrain from doing so.”
