'Not satisfied with clarification', SGPC files police complaint against ‘Yaariyan 2’ makers
'Yaariyan 2' controversy: Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) has initiated legal action against the makers of "Yaariyan 2" for objectionable visuals in the song "Saure Ghare." A clean-shaven actor can be seen wearing a "kirpan" in the song, which was released on T-Series' YouTube channel on August 27.
The SGPC asked that this film be banned immediately and reached out to the Ministries of Information and Broadcasting, Information Technology and Electronics and the Central Film Board of Certification.
A complaint has been filed with the Amritsar Police Commissioner. Though the filmmaker issued an official statement on X stating that the actor was wearing a 'khukri' rather than a 'kirpan,' the SGPC rejected it, stating that Sikhs know the difference between "kirpan" and "khukri" and how both are worn on the body.
“We are not satisfied with your illogical clarification. Therefore, we are initiating legal action as the video is still in the public domain and continuously hurting the religious sentiments of the Sikh community,” the Sikh body stated.
