Amritsar: Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) has made strong objection to an advertisement issued by the Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC) showing a non-Sikh wearing a turban.
In a release issued here on Saturday, SGPC president Kirpal Singh Badungar stated that the advertisement regarding GST had published pictures of persons of different religions including that of a non-Sikh shown wearing a turban which had hurt the religious sentiments of the community.

SGPC has urged the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to intervene and ensure the immediate removal of the picture of turbaned non-Sikh and replace it with a real Sikh. It has also demanded action against the persons responsible for the gaffe.
Meanwhile, the Jathedar of Akal Takht Giani Gurbachan Singh informed that Sikh clergy has decided to not allow the printing of Sikh religious symbol Khanda or the couplets of Gurbani on the clothes meant for covering the head before entering Sri Darbar Sahib.
