GUWAHATI: Delhi BJP Spokesperson Tajinder Bagga has filed a police complaint against the director of Netflix Series Sacred Games 2, Anurag Kashyap for “intentionally hurting Sikh sentiments by adding a scene that disrespects Sikh religious symbol, Kada.”
The series shows a scene wherein actor Saif Ali Khan, who plays the role of a Sikh cop in the series, takes off his Kada and throws it into the sea.
In his written police statement, Bagga mentions that the "Kada is considered as a revered and integral part of Sikh religion and it is treated with utmost respect and faith."
He also added in his statement that "The accused deliberately and intentionally depicted the scene in his web series with sole intention of insulting and outraging religious feelings of the people belonging to the Sikh community to promote disharmony, enmity, hatred and ill-will between different religious groups to provoke breach of peace by giving provocation and to severely insult the religious beliefs of the Sikhs."
Bagga is seeking action against Anurag Kashyap under section section 295-A (damaging sacred object), 153, 153-A (attack on religion), 504 (provocation to break peace) and 505 (spreading rumours) IPC and Information Technology Act.
