The AISSF is upset with the depiction of Sikhs in Ajay Devgn’s film Son of Sardaar
In a letter to Akal Takht head Gurbachan Singh, AISSF president Karnail Singh demanded action against Devgn for hurting the religious sentiments of Sikhs. The Akal Takht is the highest temporal seat of the Sikh religion.
Singh Tuesday said the film, to be released in November 2012, had blasphemous remarks against Sikhs. The AISSF has sought registration of a police case against the filmmakers. “The film’s trailer has demeaning dialogues,” Karnail Singh said. “In the film, the lead actor wears a Sikh turban but has the tattoo of a Hindu god on his chest. This is against Sikh principles,” he added.
Singh said they had sent a legal notice to the filmmakers and asked to delete the objectionable scenes. But Devgn had not responded to the notice, he said.
