Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Rahul Gandhi has come under fire for linking ‘Abhay Mudra’ with Guru Nanak Dev. Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) on Friday took strong cognizance of the recent comments made by the Congress leader in Parliament. Also, it accused him of linking Abhay Mudra with the ideology of Guru Nanak Dev. SGPC said in a statement, ‘Rahul Gandhi, while referring to Guru Nanak, said that the image of Guru Sahib shows Abhay Mudra, this is completely wrong. It was clarified in the resolution that Guru Sahib did not recognize any such posture or asana. He only taught to connect with one ‘Akal Purakh’.

The SGPC strongly objected to the comments made by Rahul Gandhi in Parliament on the philosophy and image of Guru Nanak Dev. The committee said that the holy Gurbani and the teachings of the Gurus should not be made a part of political debate without full information. Often the basic principles of the Gurus and the meaning of the holy Gurbani are also misinterpreted by political people, which hurts the sentiments of the Sikhs. Through the resolution, the SGPC appealed to the Speaker of the Lok Sabha and the Chairman of the Rajya Sabha to ensure that no one’s religious sentiments are hurt during the proceedings of Parliament.

After all, what did Rahul Gandhi say in Parliament?
Rahul Gandhi had cited Prophet Muhammad while speaking during the debate on the motion of thanks on the President’s address on July 1. He had said that the Quran talks about fearlessness. He had said that when hands are raised in ‘dua’, a kind of ‘abhaya mudra’ can also be seen. He had mentioned Hinduism, Islam, Sikhism, Christianity, Buddhism and Jainism while holding pictures of Lord Shiva, Guru Nanak and Jesus Christ to underline the importance of fearlessness.

Ban on videography for propaganda inside Golden Temple complex
The SGPC also ordered to stop any artist or actor from doing videography for their promotion in the Golden Temple complex. The move comes days after fashion designer Archana Makwana performed yoga at Harmandar Sahib. These decisions were taken at the SGPC executive committee meeting held in Amritsar. Fashion designer Makwana was booked for ‘hurting religious sentiments’ through yoga at the Golden Temple complex on June 21, International Yoga Day. However, Makwana had apologised, saying that she never intended to hurt anyone’s religious sentiments.
