The SGPC on Tuesday wrote to the Central Board of Film Certification, saying that its decision not to certify the movie Sadda Haq was based on "totally baseless and hard to believe" reasons.
After being approached by film producer Kuljinder Singh, SGPC had formed a committee to look into the matter. In a letter to Board member Dipesh Mehta, SGPC chief Avtar Singh Makkar wrote that the committee, after watching the movie, is of the opinion that the film revolves around the action of military and paramilitary forces on Golden Temple and over other 30 Sikh shrines in June 1984. "The committee is of the opinion that the film Sadda Haq does not contain any threat to the unity and integrity of the country... The film warns against the reoccurrence of such incidents instead," he added.
