Asian Journal - - India -

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thurs­day asked the Shi­ro­mani Gur­d­wara Pra­band­hak Com­mit­tee - the high­est tem­po­ral body of Sikhs - to sug­gest the ar­eas where it could give di­rec­tion for curb­ing Sikh-cen­tric jokes and which are im­ple­mentable. “What are the ar­eas where we can give di­rec­tions and they can be im­ple­mented,” said a bench of Chief Jus­tice T.S.Thakur and Jus­tice Uday Umesh Lalit. While en­ter­tain­ing the plea by the SGPC, the court tagged it with an ear­lier plea by Delhi Sikh Gu­rud­wara Man­age­ment Com­mit­tee (DSGMC) and one by ad­vo­cate Harvin­der Chowd­hury seek­ing to sen­si­tise the peo­ple about the im­pact of Sikh-cen­tric jokes on the com­mu­nity par­tic­u­larly the chil­dren and clamp down on the more than 5,000 web­sites cir­cu­lat­ing th­ese jokes.
