Manjinder S Sirsa, the Shiromani Akali Dal MLA, has sent a written complaint to the Union minister of information and broadcasting, Prakash Javdekar against Netflix’s Sacred Games 2 for mocking Sikh community.
Sirsa, who is also the party's national spokesperson, objected to a scene that shows a disillusioned Saif Ali Khan throwing away his kara. The kara is a cast iron bangle worn by the Sikh community and -- along with the kesh (hair), kangha (comb), kachera (a salwar undergarment) and kirpan (a small dagger) -- makes up the five kakars that Guru Gobind Singh asked the Khalsa Sikhs to wear at all times.
“The kara is one of the five holy Ks of the Sikhs. It is as dear to us as our lives."
"I feel it is with this mentality that the director of Sacred Games, Anurag Kashyap, has done such a bad deed. I have sent a written complaint to the Union minister of information and broadcasting, Prakash Javdekar, and demanded that this scene be deleted immediately from Sacred Games.”
