As the video of the incident evoked sharp reactions from social media users, the General Secretary of Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) issued a clarification.
“This is a Sikh shrine. Every religious place has its own decorum…We welcome everyone…We apologise if an official misbehaved…The flag on her face was not our national flag as it didn’t have Ashoka Chakra. It could have been a political flag, Gurcharan Singh Grewal, SGPC General Secretary said on being asked about the viral video.
