Patna: A statue of Guru Gobind Singh ji has been installed in a shopping mall in Patna. Various groups and Sikh community have strongly objected to this.

Sikh religious leaders said that idol worship is forbidden in their religion, then in what capacity was the statue of Guru Sahib installed in the mall. They have appealed to the government to take strict action against the mall owners.

Sikh leaders have alleged that all these things are being done under a deliberate conspiracy to hurt the feelings of people associated with the Sikh religion.

Bathinda MP and former Union minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal said the conspiracies were being hatched to weaken the Sikh panth.

She said that the great Guru Sahiban and Shri Guru Granth Sahib emphasize the formless nature of Akal Purakh, the Supreme Power. That is why Sikh Maryada forbids idol worship. Therefore, the installation of a statue of Dasmesh Pita Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji in Ambuja Mall, an Adani-owned company in Patna, is an outrageous violation of Sikh norms.

“Those responsible for it owe an apology to the Sikh quom. Govt should take swift action against the guilty. I urge all Sikhs to unite to fight the conspiracies against the Khalsa Panth to dilute our religious vision and identity,” she said.

The status was installation at Ambuja Neotia mall. The statue of Guru Gobind Singh ji has been installed in this shopping mall and it received sharp reaction from Sikh community.
