The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) has taken a strong note of a "bogus" social media message uploaded in the name of its president, Avtar Singh Makkar, to suggest that he praised the movie "Messenger of God" (MSG).

In a statement issued here on Wednesday, SGPC secretary Roop Singh said some anti-social elements had tried to defame the SGPC president, who had never appreciated the movie featuring Dera Sacha Sauda head Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, a man accused of insulting Sikhism.

"On the contrary, he (Makkar) has made it clear that he would abide by the Akal Takht directions and ask an SGPC team to examine the movie's content," said Roop Singh.

The official said the SGPC would ask the Punjab Police cyber crime cell to trace the user who had uploaded the fake message.
