Blasphemy on the menu offends Bangalore Sikhs
Sikhs have been demonstrating in Bangalore because the menu card of a restaurant contained symbols and jokes with “hurt the sentiments of the community”.
Gurudwara Committee president Gursharan Singh:
A picture on the card shows the holy Kirpan (sword) and turban kept along with the footwear, which hurts our sentiments. The Kirpan and turbans are highly revered symbols of our religion. The menu card projects Sikhs in a bad light.
Nobody should hurt sentiments of other communities. If the hotel management fails to tender a public apology through media or send a written apology to the Gurudwara, Bangalore’s Sikh community – comprising 8,000 members – will stage a massive dharna to prevent them from carrying out their business
