Congress MP Ravneet Singh Bittu on Thursday strongly rebuked actor Anupam Kher for using the “sacred words of Guru Gobind Singh” to describe Bharatiya Janata Party spokesperson Sambit Patra.
सवा लाख से एक भिडा दूँ !:) @sambitswaraj— Anupam Kher (@AnupamPKher) July 1, 2020
On Wednesday, Kher tweeted: “सवा लाख से एक भिडा दूँ !:) @sambitswaraj.”
Kher’s tweet seemed to reference the fact that Patra was heavily criticised on social media after he posted a picture of a child sitting on his grandfather— who was shot dead in Kashmir on Wednesday—with the caption: “PULITZER LOVERS ??”

Bittu called Kher’s tweet an attempt by RSS to dilute the “strong tenets of Sikhism.”
He tweeted: “How dare @AnupamPKher use sacred words of Guru Gobind Singh ji to describe the spokesperson of BJP. It spoils the martial image of Sikhs. It is a bid of RSS to dilute strong tenets of Sikhism. PM Modi should tender immediate apology and kick out Kher and his wife from bjp.”

Kher later apologised for the tweet.
