Inscription of the Mool Mantra was removed from the stairs of Yogacentre Hoheluft in Hamburg,Germany by construction workers.
Five members of the Indian Gurdwara in Hamburg were present for this process.
An Ardas ( Prayer) was made before the process started and the stone, that was burned off the stairs was respectfully processed by the members of the Gurdwara afterwards.
Yogacentre Hoheluft while conveying their apology thanked to Gurdwara members for pointing out the rule prohibiting Gurbani on floors of which yogacentre members were not aware.
They made it very clear, that they did not mean any disrespect to the Mool Mantra or any hurt to the sentiments of fellow Sikhs.
"On the contrary we wished for our students to be inspired and uplifted by the Mool Mantra as they entered our Yogacentre.Now we understand that this was completely inappropriate.We will not repeat this mistake.We feel the love of the Guru as much as anybody else does ".

Not many people know that the government of Nepal issued a coin in the year 2004, to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Guru Granth Sahib's prakash.... it is the first (and only) coin, with images associated with the Sikh religion, issued anywhere in the world after the collapse of Maharaja Ranjit Singh's empire in 1839.

SONS OF SARDAAR SOUNDS LIKE A SEQUEL TO THE 2012 FILM SON OF SARDAAR, BUT THE ONLY THING THE TWO FILMS WILL HAVE IN COMMON IS THE SIMILARITY OF NAME. UNLIKE THE ORIGINAL ACTION COMEDY, SONS OF SARDAAR WILL BE BASED ON A PAGE FROM THE HISTORY BOOKS AND WILL TELL THE STORY OF THE 21 SIKHS WHO FOUGHT TO DEATH IN THE 1897 BATTLE OF SARAGARHI.

Bobby friction clarification: My remarks on social media Re: Sikhs
I understand my use of the term "Sikh Taliban" as a metaphor has caused offence for some Sikhs. For that I apologise unreservedly. It wasn't my intention to cause pain to those people in the Sikh community who are upset by the remarks, and I hope they understand that was never intended whatsoever.
