Sunny didn’t fol­low Sikh Gu­rus, can’t use ‘Kaur’ in web series on her: SGPC

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - TIMES NATION -

Amritsar: Shi­ro­mani Gur­d­wara Par­band­hak Com­mit­tee (SGPC) and Sikh women lead­er­ship have ob­jected to Bol­ly­wood ac­tress and one-time porn star Sunny Leone’s up­com­ing web series ‘Karen­jit Kaur: The Un­told Story of Sunny Leone’. They are upset with pro­duc­ers us­ing ‘Kaur’ in the series.

SGPC’s ad­di­tional sec­re­tary and spokesper­son Diljit Singh Bedi said on Fri­day, “Kaur is a very re­spectable name given by Sikh gu­rus to Sikh women. A per­son who didn’t fol­low the teach­ings of Sikh Gu­rus shouldn’t use the word Kaur as this could hurt Sikh re­li­gious feel­ings. Sikhs will not al­low her to use it. She should ten­der a pub­lic apology.”

Echo­ing sim­i­lar views, pres­i­dent of the Istri Akali Dal, Bibi Ja­gir Kaur, said, “She is us­ing the word Kaur for mak­ing her biopic a suc­cess, un­aware of the fact that the same could hurt Sikh re­li­gious sen­ti­ments.”
