Despite offering apology by Gurdas Maan, also chairman of Dera Murad Shah, Nakodar, over a recent controversy involving him, some Sikhs organisations remained adamant and wanted cops to book the Punjabi Singer. Hundreds of Sikh activists headed by Satkar Committee first assembled in a gurdwara in Nakodar then proceeded to Jalandhar to block vehicular traffic to raise the demand of registration of a case against Gurdas Maan today.

SSP (Rural) Naveen Singla said FIR was registered on the complaint of Satkar Committee member Paramjit Singh.

When contacted, SDM Nakodar Poonam Singh said all required preventive steps are being taken to maintain communal harmony and peace in the Nakodar sub division.

Punjabi singer 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 demanded that a case be lodged against the singer or else they would hold a demonstration on the issue across the state.
