The club owner has released the following statement:
“Dear fellow Sikhs it’s not what it seems like . We did the prayers for our own reason being a new set up with sincerity and with no alcohol or cigarettes being sold . These items were completely closed and not shown to Sangat . However it has become viral n we didn’t realize it was wrong and we have hurt so many of your feelings . We sincerely apologize to all Sikhs/ Sikhs Organizations/ Gurudwaras . And we hereby promise that we shall never repeat this mistake in the future. Please treat this as a personal apology to all those affected and forgive us for all that has happened . Thanking you .”
