Punjabi singer Gurdas Maan has posted a video on the social media platform offering apology over his recent controversy.
Maan had landed in a controversy as members of the Satkar Committee had lodged a police complaint after his video had gone viral wherein he was heard saying that the chief of a dera and Nakodar Sain Laddi Shah was from the descendants of third Sikh guru, Guru Amar Dass.
The committee members had lodged a complaint with Nakodar police and later with the SSP, Jalandhar. The committee had demanded that a case be lodged against the singer or else they would lodge a demonstration on the issue across Punjab. The members had raised slogans against the singer outside the SSP office and threatened to gherao the SSP office if the officials did not take action against Maan.
The singer had reportedly made the statement during a mela at Nakodar. The members of the committee had alleged that the speech of Maan could be a part of his planned strategy and aimed at hurting the sentiments of the Sikhs.
