SGPC may sue makers of ‘Flying Jatt’ over symbol


Amritsar: With the makers of the Tiger Shroff-starrer film ‘Flying Jatt’ not taking remedial action despite objections over the use of a Sikh religious symbol, the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) is mulling legal action against them.
At a meeting of the SGPC held in Amritsar on Thursday, it was decided to initiate legal action if the makers of the film did not remove the objectionable scenes.The SGPC is demanding that use of ‘Khanda’, a Sikh religious symbol, by Tiger Shroff on his back and his attire be removed from the film.
“This is hurting religious sentiments of the Sikhs,” SGPC president Avtar Singh Makkar said.The promo of the film was released recently by Balaji Films.
SGPC Additional Secretary Diljit Singh Bedi said the film’s producers were trying to provoke the Sikhs and would be responsible for the consequences.
