The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) has announced on Saturday that Tik Tok videos inside the Golden Temple have been prohibited. This announcement has come after the recent incident of three girls posing for a Tik Tok video inside Sri Darbar Sahib, which went viral on social media.
SGPC has also pasted posters inside Sri Harimandir Sahib to warn the devotees about this prohibition. One such posted reads: 'Tik Tok is prohibited here'.
This could have been done after the apology of the girl who made a dance video in the parikrama of Sri Darbar Sahib. She had blamed SGPC for not placing any warning signs inside the premises which was the reason why she was unaware that this act was not allowed! (befkuf kudi)
The move has come a day after the preposition of banning mobile phones inside the Golden Temple complex was being considered.
"We want all devotees to visit the Golden Temple without any hassle and are not in favour of imposing any such (mobile) ban, but the way the incidents of TikTok are surfacing, I think imposing the ban on carrying mobile phones inside (Golden Temple) will have to be pondered over in the future," Jathedar had told reporters in Amritsar on Friday.
The officials have also pointed out that when the sewadars stopped people from clicking pictures inside the premises, they are confronted with arguments by the devotees, even though photography and videography have already been banned in the precincts of the Golden Temple.
Making such videos at one of the holiest shrines in the world..doesn't it show the sanity of those who indulge in such acts? Or has it become an easy way to boost one's Tik Tok follower base? Because at the end of it krna vi ki hai...video te maafi mnglo and it's done!
