Chandigarh’s famous 1469 Shop openly promotes casteism in their t-shirt products. The company which gets it’s name from the birth year of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji goes against the teachings of the Sikh guru by selling shirts with names of different castes.
Cricketer Harbhajan Singh is seen promoting a T-Shirt which says ‘Ramgharia’.
Activists took to social media to express their concern:

Great change, once Sikh were proud on initiation of Amrit and become Khalsa but now on their caste?
Shame on them.
