Tent copy of Sri Harmandir Sahib erected in Kolkata for Durga Puja

CHANDIGARH, Punjab—A tent copy of Sri Harmandir Sahib has been erected in the northern park of Bhawanipur in Kolkata for an upcoming religious Hindu event known as Durga Puja. Several visuals of this tent copy of Sri Harmandir Sahib have gone viral over social media due to which a sharp outrage is being witnessed among Sikh masses.

Taking strong notice of this anti-Sikhism move, the SGPC president Gobind Singh Longowal has said that Sri Harmandir Sahib can’t copied at all. He added that the copiers must have understood the ethos and traditions of Sikhism as well as the Sikh sentiments before committing such an anti-Sikhism act.

Meanwhile, it is learnt that the SGPC has asked the management committee of Gurdwara Bda Sikh Sangat to probe this incident and report back the factual information by visiting ground zero.
