New Delhi:Bad news for American streaming service Netflix seems to be pouring in endlessly. Delhi MLA Manjinder Singh Sirsa, who is a member of the Akali Dal, has slammed the video streaming platform for a scene in its latest Indian original Sacred Games 2 where lead character Saif Ali Khan throws away his ‘kada’ (a bangle that is a religious symbol for the Sikh community).
Sacred Games 2 director Anurag Kashyap too has come under the scanner. Sirsa is demanding removal of the scene from the series, and threatening legal action otherwise.
I wonder why Bollywood continues to disrespect our religious symbols! Anurag Kashyap deliberatly puts this scene in #SacredGamesS2 where Saif Ali Khan throws his Kada in sea! A KADA is not an ordinary ornament. It’s the pride of Sikhs & a blessing of Guru Sahib @NetflixIndia @ANI pic.twitter.com/c2KMbJVrwA

In a series of tweets, Sirsa urged Union Minister of Information and Broadcasting Prakash Javadekar to take stern action against Netflix and the show which disrespects not just the Sikh community but Hindu religion as a whole.
