The Hush Post: Harinder Singh Sikka the producer of Nanak Shah Fakir has been ex-communicated from Sikh Panth.
After a meeting of Panj Singh Sahiban (five high priests) at the Akal Takht it was decided that Sikka will be ex-communicated.
Earlier, Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh had called a meeting of five Sikh Jathedars on Thursday to deliberate on producer Harinder Sikka’s refusal to abide by orders of Akal Takht. They had ordered withdrawal of his movie Nanak Shah Fakir from cinemas. As per a statement, Akal Takht Jathedar had said that an urgent meeting had been called to deliberate the future of the film Nanak Shah Fakir.
Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh had ‘imposed ban’ on upcoming Hindi movie Nanak Shah Fakir on April 9.
His recent statement further read, “Akal Takht has imposed a ban on the movie. It should not be shown in any part of the world. SGPC has already already taken back all the letters written giving approval to the movie. Harinder Singh Sikka should not release the movie.”
SGPC member Karnail Singh Panjoli said, “Sikka has been violating orders of Akal Takht on movie and hence he should be excommunicated from community.”
