  • tags: no_tag

    • The president of SGPC Jathedar Avtar Singh Makkar has served a legal notice against a Delhi-based Punjabi monthly magazine for allegedly defaming him by publishing his ‘morphed’ picture on the front page of its February ’10 issue.

      The notice, sent by Ajaib Singh, senior advocate of Punjab-Haryana high court, claims that showing him in RSS uniform (Khaki shorts) may create disunity and friction in the Sikh community and demands apology from the publisher and editor of the magazine.

      In the front page photo, Makkar clad in Khakhi shorts is shown bowing at the knees of RSS chief.The caption suggested that Makkar has appeased RSS by changing Nanakshahi calender.
