Pakistani model apologizes after her barehead photoshoot at Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara triggers row

A Pakistani model has triggered controversary with her “barehead” photoshoot at Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur that has hurt the sentiments of the Sikh community.

The model, Sauleha, later deleted the photographs and posted an apology on her Instagram page.

On Monday, a clothing brand – Mannat Clothing – posted pictures of Sauleha, shot at Kartarpur Sahib, on their Instagram page. Shiromani Akali Dal spokesperson Manjinder Singh Sirsa and other users shared the pictures pointing that the model was bareheaded.

Sirsa demanded strict action against those who misbehaved in religious places of the Sikh minorities in Pakistan. He stated that the model posing without covering her head inside the Gurudwara premises is akin to ‘beadbi’ or sacrilege.

Covering her head in a gurdwara is mandatory.

In her apology, Sauleha said that she did not intend to hurt anyone, and the images were supposed to be a memory of her visit to Kartarpur Sahib.

“Recently I posted a picture on Instagram that was not even a part of a shoot or anything. I just went to Kartarpur to learn about the history and know about the Sikh community. It wasn’t done to hurt anyone sentiments or anything for that matter. However, if I have hurt anyone or they think that I don’t respect their culture. I am Sorry,” she wrote in her Instagram post.

Pakistan police have initiated an investigation into the unpleasant incident.

Pakistan’s Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry also said that the designer and model must apologize to the Sikh community.
