AAP leader H S Phoolka on Sunday criticised the Congress for comparing PPCC chief Captain Amarinder Singh with Mard Agambra, the title used for Sikh Guru Gobind Singh.
The AAP leader also criticised Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu for distorting a Sikh couplet through his statement in Amritsar, in which he reportedly “Jab tak Congress bahal na karau, Sidhu nam na kehau”.
Guru Gobind Singh Sahib Ji’s Lines:
Chirion se main baaz turaun, Tabe Gobind Singh naam kahaun
It is when I make sparrows fight hawks that I am called Gobind Singh
Gidderon se main sher banaun, Tabe Gobind Singh naam kahaun
It is when make I lions out of wolves that I am called Gobind Singh
Nichon se main ucch banaun, Tabe Gobind Singh naam kahaun
It is when I make the lowly rise that I am called Gobind Singh
Sawa lakh se ek laraun, Tabe Gobind Singh naam kahaun.
According to the Times of India, Khazan Singh filed a complaint against Navjot Singh Sidhu for hurting Sikh religious sentiments by twisting the famous quote of Sri Guru Gobind Singh Sahib Ji. The complaint was lodged under section 295-A of the IPC.
The SGPC has taken note of the two incidents where Guru Sahib’s lines were distorted and stated that they should refrain from doing so.
