With the makers of the film 'Flying Jatt' not taking remedial action despite objections over the use of a Sikh religious symbol, the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) is mulling legal action against them.At a meeting of the SGPC held here on Thursday under the chairmanship of its President Avtar Singh Makkar, it was decided to initiate legal action if the makers of the film did not remove the objectionable scenes.The SGPC is demanding that use of 'Khanda', a Sikh religious symbol, by the hero of the film Tiger Shroff on his back and his attire be removed from the film."We will not tolerate misuse of religious symbols of Sikh religion in films. This is hurting religious sentiments of the Sikhs," the SGPC President said here.The promo of the film was released recently by Balaji Films, the producer of the film.SGPC Additional Secretary Diljit Singh Bedi said the objection was regarding the hero's turban, attire, and 'Khanda' sign on the back.Bedi said the SGPC had sent a communication to the film producers in November last year objecting to the use of the 'Khanda' symbol but got no response.On December 30, SGPC President Makkar wrote to the producers again but the scenes were not removed.Besides Tiger Shroff, the film features actress Jacqueline Fernandez and professional wrestler Nathan Jones.Bedi said the film's producers were trying to provoke the Sikhs and would be responsible for the consequences.
