A statue of Guru Nanak Dev Ji was installed at a chowk or intersection in Bhawanghar, Gujarat. The statue installed by local trust in honor of Guru Nanak Dev Ji has raised questions.
The Bani of Guru Nanak Dev Ji speaks against idol worship and statues and so the construction of the statue goes against the teachings of the first Sikh Guru.
Social media has been on a buzz ever since pictures of the statue were released on various platforms. Many questioned the construction of the statue and called it against the teachings of the Sikh faith. Local Sikh bodies haven’t taken any action to the matter and it remains to be seen whether any action would be taken.
