Sri Amritsar, June 21, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) president Bibi Jagir Kaur has demanded from the Government of India’s Ministry of Information and Broadcasting and Ministry of Communications, to immediately put a ban on ‘Grahan’ web series based on the incidents of the 1984 Sikh genocide, which is scheduled to be released on Disney+Hotstar platform on June 24.

Bibi Jagir KaurWhile speaking to the media at a press conference at the SGPC office on Monday, Bibi Jagir Kaur said, “A Sikh character has been portrayed in an objectionable manner in a web series called ‘Grahan’ based on the 1984 Sikh genocide that took place across the country during the then Congress government of India. In the web series, the charge of Sikh genocide is being levelled against a Sikh character which is highly condemnable and fabricated.”

SGPC president Bibi Jagir Kaur said that a legal notice has been sent by 1984 Sikh genocide witness Bibi Nirpreet Kaur to Ajay G Rai, producer of ‘Grahan’ web series and Sunil Ryan, head and president of Disney+Hotstar, which is also supported by the SGPC.

Bibi Jagir Kaur said, “Through this web series work is being done to sprinkle salt on the wounds of Sikhs which would hurt the Sikh sentiments. Such films also hurt the communal harmony in society. Therefore, the government should enact strict Information Technology (IT) rules to curb such sensitive and objectionable trends.”

Bibi Jagir Kaur demanded from the Government of India that it should include Sikh representatives in the censor board so that controversial scenes related to Sikhs and Sikh faith could be removed in any film.

SGPC president Bibi Jagir Kaur warned the ‘Grahan’ producer and the head of Disney+Hotstar that if the objectionable web series is released, legal action would be taken against them by the SGPC as well.

On this occasion, SGPC senior vice-president Surjit Singh Bhitewad, assistant secretary Kulwinder Singh Ramdas, Tejinder Singh Padda, OSD to SGPC president Dr Amrik Singh Latifpur, superintendent Malkit Singh Beharwal and others were present.
