Chandigarh, November 22

The Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) has written to the President of India urging withdrawal of Padma Shri conferred on actress Kangana Ranaut for “spreading communal hatred and targeting one community (Sikhs) in particular, insulting farmers and freedom fighters”.

DSGMC president and SAD leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa wrote to President Ram Nath Kovind saying Kangana had been “deliberately provoking the Sikhs with references to incidents of the 1984 genocide”. Sirsa said a DSGMC delegation would visit Mumbai on Monday to meet the Maharashtra Home Minister and lodge a complaint against Kangana at the Khar police station, and meet Deputy Commissioner of Police to ensure registration of an FIR.
