BJP legislator Manjinder Singh Sirsa who is an MLA from Rajouri Garden and also head of the Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC) accused Anurag Kashyap, director of Sacred Games for disrespecting Sikh and Hindu sentiments through portrayals in the web series directed by him.

Sirsa said he had complained to the Information and Broadcasting minister against Kashyap demanding strict action against him.

We cannot let Bollywood stars play with our religious faiths & sentiments. I warn Anurag Kashyap; he should at least study the scriptures of Sikhs & Hindus before he portrays the characters so negatively in his projects just for entertainment or sensationalisation,” Sirsa said in a statement.

Delhi BJP spokesperson Tajinderpal Singh Bagga said he filed a complaint against Kashyap at Parliament Street police station for insulting Sikh sentiments.

I filed a complaint at Parliament Street police station against Sacred Games director Anurag Kashayp for disrespecting Sikh Kakaars. In a scene of Sacred Games, a Sikh character played by Saif Ali Khan threw his Kara which is one of the Kakaars revered by the Sikhs,“says Bagga.

The ‘Kakaars’ are religious symbols comprising Kesh (uncut hair), Kangha (comb), Kara (iron bangle), Kachera (cotton loincloth) and Kirpan (iron dagger), adopted by the Sikhs.

No official statement has been given by the director till now.
