After the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD), now radical Sikh leader Baljit Singh Daduwal has announced to oppose the release of the upcoming movie ‘MSG: Messenger of God’ of Sirsa dera head Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh and has announced a protest march in Sirsa on January 15, a day ahead of the release of the movie.

Daduwal has also urged the Punjab government not to allow the release of the movie.

“We have warned the Punjab and Haryana governments against the release of the movie in both the states. If they do not take action, then they will themselves be responsible for any unwanted situation created due to the release of the movie,” said Daduwal.

He said, “Every effort will be made to stop the release of the movie. A protest march from Gurdwara Patshahi Dasvin in Sirsa to the office of the deputy commissioner will be organised on January 15 to stop the release of movie,” said Daduwal. The movie is scheduled to be released on January 16.

Daduwal is known for stiff opposition to the dera head and dera followers had also objected to his religious congregation in Sirsa last month. “We also invite all the Sikh bodies to participate in the protest march and oppose the release of the movie,” said Daduwal. He said, “Earlier, two movies based on the Sikh history were banned by the union government. But governments are now silent on the movie of the dera head, who is facing rape and murder charges.”

In Haryana, Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) has already asked the government to stop the release of the ‘MSG’.
