Akali Dal leader Manjinder Sirsa accuses filmmaker Anurag Kashyap of deliberately disrespecting Sikhs in season 2 of Netflix’s Sacred Games

According to Sirsa, Kara or Kada represents the pride of Sikhs and blessing of Guru Govind Singh and not an ordinary ornament.

Shiromani Akali Dal leader and Delhi MLA Manjinder Sirsa has accused controversial filmmaker Anurag Kashyap of hurting the sentiments of Sikhs by deliberately disrespecting their religious symbols.

In a tweet, Sirsa has accused Anurag Kashyap, one of the directors of the show, of deliberately adding a scene in his new series Sacred Games 2, where actor Saif Ali Khan, who plays the role of a Sikh cop throws his Kara (Iron bracelet) into the sea.

According to Sirsa, Kara or Kada represents the pride of Sikhs and blessing of Guru Govind Singh and not an ordinary ornament. Sirsa accuses the Bollywood and Anurag Kashyap of continuously disrespecting religious symbols.

Kada or Kara is one of the Panj Kakars or Five Ks to be worn by a Sikh at all times. The other four are Kesh (uncut hair), Kangha (a wooden comb for the hair), Kachera (a cotton tie-able undergarment) and Kirpan (an iron dagger large enough to defend oneself).

The tradition of Panj Kakars was started by the tenth Sikh Guru Guru Gobind Singh, who had commanded Khalsa Sikhs to wear at all times in 1699. The Sikh community believes that the Five Ks are not just symbols, but articles of faith that collectively form the external identity and the Khalsa devotee’s commitment to the Sikh rehni “Sikh way of life”.

Anurag Kashyap and the makers of the Sacred Games have been part of the controversy for pushing Hindu-phobic content in their show. Along with other shows, Netflix has become a platform for abusive, incendiary content, which has often targetted the cultural value system of Indians, especially Hindus.

Recently, mysteriously two days ahead of the release of the second season of Sacred Games on Netflix, filmmaker Anurag Kashyap had quit Twitter by deactivating his Twitter account. Many social media users suspected Anurag Kashyap of playing his victim card to market his new season ahead of its launch.

Anurag Kashyap, the newfound cultural hero of the ultra-left wing, has a long history of abusing people and resorting to fake news on social media.  Anurag Kashyap, a member of ‘liberal-secular’ outrage factory, and regularly likes to make false anti-Modi statements on social media.
