THE SHIROMANI Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee (SGPC) Thursday introduced that it’ll move court against the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) for evaluating its youth manifesto to the Sikh holy guide and in addition for superimposing its occasion image — broom — on the image of the Golden Temple on the manifesto’s cowl.

“We will file a court case in Amritsar against (AAP nationwide convenor and) Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and AAP leaders Ashish Khetan and Kanwar Sandhu. They have dedicated a blunder that can not be undone by an apology. They have to bear the results for hurting Sikh spiritual sentiments and taking political mileage through the use of the {photograph} of Golden Temple and a brush,” mentioned SGPC chief Avtar Singh Makkar.

Asked why related motion was not taken against Punjab Revenue Minister Bikram Singh Majithia when he allegedly distorted Gurbani (holy textual content), Makkar termed that incident an “unintentional mistake”.

“SGPC is not being biased. We are not favoring any particular party, but AAP’s manifesto has hurt Sikh religious feelings across the world and thus legal action is being taken by SGPC,” he mentioned, whereas refusing to touch upon why no authorized motion was taken against Majithia.
