Notice to e-tailers over Gurus’ idols


Notice to e-tailers over Gurus’ idols

Amritsar, June 11

A day after The Tribune highlighted the online sale of Sikh Guru idols, the SGPC swung into action and sent legal notice to the firms.

Gobind Singh Longowal, SGPC chief, said Amazon and Flipkart were served legal notice for defying the Sikh rehat maryada by selling the Sikh Guru idols.

Longowal said it appeared to be a conspiracy of regularly disobeying the Sikh principles by commercial sites. He said idol worship was strictly prohibited in Sikh religion and those trying to violate it for any gains would not be tolerated at any cost.

“Amazon had conducted this blunder for the second time. Earlier also, it was served notice when it used the image of the Golden Temple on doormats for sale on its website. Then, it had submitted an apology and removed it. Now, both Amazon and Flipkart have been served notice to stop selling Sikh Guru idols on their websites immediately, otherwise action under the CrPc would be initiated against them,” he said.

Longowal also appealedto the masses not to purchase the idols of the Sikh Gurus and discourage anti-Sikh practices. —TNS
