The ‘Mool Mantar‘ which is a sacred verse for the Sikhs was playing in the background of a dance performance clip posted on the President’s social media handle. It was taken down following criticism from the Sikh community who stated that the verse was not meant to be sung or danced to. The post was termed blasphemous. However the clip might be freely available as many of the audience members have recorded it and circulated it.
