MTV has hurt Sikhs sentiments: SGPC

Taking strong exception to a controversial MTV promo, the SGPC on Monday said it has hurt the sentiments of Sikhs and the attack on a Mumbai studio was "spontaneous" reaction by some members of the community.

Talking to reporters in Fatehgarh Sahib, Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee president Avtar Singh Makkar said "no one has the right to hurt the sentiments of Sikhs. "It is not for the first time that our sentiments have been hurt," he said.

A group of Sikhs had yesterday vandalised the office of MTV in central Mumbai alleging misrepresentation of their community in the publicity campaign where the visual of a Sikh peeping into a room where a girl is giving body massage to a man was used.

Makkar said these incidents are taking place despite SGPC's "repeated requests to the Centre to induct its representatives in censor board or any other organisations that can check contents of movies or serials involving Sikhs".
