The Punjab government has said that an inquiry has been ordered into the controversial photo shoot at Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur in which the boundaries of the model will be determined and three different things including negligence of the staff will be determined.
Talking to Independent Urdu on Monday, Punjab government spokesman Khawar Hassan said that the third aspect is what were the responsibilities of the brand which published these photos.
A photo shoot of a female blogger without a head covering at Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur was heavily criticized on social media.
Pakistani citizens and government members, including the Sikh community, also strongly condemned the incident.
The issue came to light when Indian journalist Runder Singh Rubin wrote on Twitter tagging the Prime Minister of Pakistan and the Ministry of Religious Affairs without modeling that modeling at Gurdwara Darbar Sahib has hurt the feelings of the Sikh community.
The photos taken at Kartarpur Gurdwara Darbar Sahib were originally published by a clothing brand called ‘Mant Clothing’ but the controversial photoshoot was removed after strong criticism on social media.
The brand said in a message on its Instagram account after the photos were removed: “We did not do this photo shoot but our team made a post inadvertently which is a mistake.”
Our website contacted Punjab government spokesman Khawar Hassan on the issue and said, “In my opinion, this photo shoot was not allowed and Punjab Chief Minister Usman Bazdar has also taken notice and inquired about it.” It is happening. ‘
“Three things will be determined in the inquiry,” he told The Independent. The first is how negligent the staff was and whether they were involved. ”
Khawar Hassan said that it would be seen whether the instructions of the government on such issue had reached him or not.
