Read on to know more. The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) demanded a ban on the show for hurting the sentiments of the community by portraying "blasphemous acts".
The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) has demanded a ban on "Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah", a popular comedy show Sab TV.
Roshan Singh Sodhi was shown as Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji Ka Khalsa, which has been justified through the dialogues & his performance.
While Munmun Dutta, who plays the role of Babita Ji, had already defended the show by saying it was a case of misunderstanding, the makers also clarified through their official Twitter handle that actor Gurcharan Singh was not dressed as the tenth guru himself but as Guru Gobind Singh ka Khalsa. "Such an act is unpardonable". "We request viewers to not misinterpret it in any other way". We have always believed in equality of all the religions & have never meant to hurt the sentiments of anyone. "We request our viewers not to misinterpret it any other context", said Asit Kumarr Modi, the producer and creator of the show, as quoted byThe Quint. He went on to say that if people will hear dialogues then it will be cleared that he was playing Guru Gobind Singh Ji ka Khalsa. The show has attracted unwarranted attention from the Sikh community after allegedly portraying the tenth guru of the community Sri Guru Gobind Singh on the show.
Mumum Dutta Explains How The Controversy Started....
"When the sequence started, the scroll introducing his character stated "Sodhi as Guru Gobind Singh Ka Khalsa" and apparently the 'Ka Khalsa got hidden behind the disclaimer scroll run by the channel".
"That's when some miscreant clicked a picture and started circulating on social media and claimed otherwise which gave rise to this controversy".
