Akal Takht Sets up 'Sikh Censor Board' - Approval must for Films on Sikhism




A ‘Sikh Censor Board’ has been set up by ‘The Akal Takht’ for all movies / documentaries on Sikhs / Sikhism. It is now "mandatory" for filmmakers now to seek approval from it before making a movie / documentary on a subject related to Sikhs and Sikhism.

The decision came after a row over the release last month of 'Nanak Shah Fakir', a film on the first Sikh guru. The Supreme Court had refused to stay the movie's release after the Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee (SGPC) approached it. The Akal Takht, the highest temporal seat of the Sikhs had no option but to set up the "Sikh Censor Board" to avoid any more "distortion of facts pertaining to Sikh Gurus and Sikh history in movies".

The 21-member board includes Takht Damdama Sahib jathedar Giani Harpreet Singh, members of the SGPC and the Delhi Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee, and academicians from Guru Nanak Dev University Amritsar, Punjab Agricultural University Ludhiana and Punjabi University Patiala.

This is being seen as a welcome move by the Sikh Community.
