AAP MLAs demand ban on screening of ‘Nanak Shah Fakir’ in Delhi

DELHI(ANI): Two Sikh AAP MLAs on Thursday demanded ban on the screening of ‘Nanak Shah Fakir’, a film based on the life of Guru Nanak, in the national capital.

Rajouri MLA Jarnail Singh and Hari Nagar MLA Jagdeep Singh met Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and raised the issue with him saying the film, releasing on April 17, would hurt the sentiments of the Sikh community.

“The film has been banned in Punjab yesterday. Several representatives of the Sikh community have met us in this regard. Even the Akal Takht, the highest seat of authority of the Sikhs, too had reservations about the movie. We have also raised a similar demand with the Chief Minister. He has forwarded the matter to Lt Governor Najeeb Jung as section 13 of the Cinematographic Act empowers him to take a call in such matters,” Jarnail Singh said.
