“We are not against Dera Sirsa for making the film but the dera must refrain for using facts/ things related to the Sikh religion in it’s movie” SGPC president said.

As per information, controversial godman and dera Sirsa head Gurmeet Ram Rahim is playing main role in the movie, while three actresses are playing as his daughters.

It is notable that dera head is facing criminal charges, including rape, sexual abuse of young women and murder charges, in CBI courts.

In 2007 Dera head attempted to personify himself as the Tenth Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh Ji by copying the historic event of “Khalsa sajna (1699)”. Dera heads move had created a rift between the Sikh sangat and the Dera, after which dera head offered two apologies, that were turned down by the Sikh sangat and the Akal Takht Sahib.
