Petition against SRK, makers of 'Zero' to be heard on Nov 30

Bombay High Court has set November 30 as the date for hearing the petition filed against Shah Rukh Khan and the makers of 'Zero' for allegedly hurting sentiments of the Sikh community. The petitioner, sought removal of scenes where SRK has been shown wearing a 'Kirpan' , stating that the "display of the Kirpan in such a way is blasphemous." "Kirpan in the Sikh religion is our fundamental right and the way Shah Rukh Khan has worn the Kirpan, he has made fun of it. A lot of Sikhs have sacrificed their lives for Kirpan during the British time so he can't make fun of it. There is no ban on wearing Kirpan, he can wear Kirpan but he has to follow the Sikh Rehat Maryada code of conduct that is what my prayer is," he added. Earlier this month, Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) general secretary Manjinder Singh Sirsa had filed a complaint against the actor for allegedly hurting the sentiments of the Sikh community. They also clarified that the makers have been careful not to hurt the feelings of any community, including the Sikh community. 'Zero' stars Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif in the lead roles. Helmed by Aanand L. Rai, the film will release on December 21.
