Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh is yet again at the receiving end of a controversy, where Sikh organisations claimed that 113 types of tobacco were served at his wedding.
According to reports, tobacco and hookah were served at Singh’s wedding which outraged Sikh groups. They also stated that a complaint would be filed for Akal Takht, one of highest seats of power in Sikh religion.
The principles of Sikhism strictly prohibit consumption of alcohol or tobacco. Previously, the cricketer’s wedding faced a controversy where some photojournalists were allegedly manhandled by bouncers outside his house during his wedding ceremony here.
The bouncers also snatched video cameras from the crew as they were recording the event, police said, adding that a case against unidentified persons has been registered.
The cameramen also held protest and sat on 'dharna'.
Later, Singh came out of the house and talked to the protesters. He also apologised for the incident.
Singh tied the nuptial knot with long-time girlfriend Geeta Basra at a gurudwara last Friday.
