AAP leader Kumar Vishwas, renowned for his poetic creativity, has apologized for using derogatory remarks against Sant Jarnail Singh Khalsa Bhindranwale. A video clip had surfaced online in which Kumar Vishwas had termed Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale as devil ‘Bhasmasur’.
It is notable that Kumar Vishwas was to participate in a Kavi Darbar going to be held in Auckland on September 4 and 5, but the campaign against his visit to Auckland stormed social media sites.
On being compelled by the Supreme Sikh Society organizing the Kavi Darbar, Kumar Vishwas had to upload a video apologizing for his earlier comments about Sant Jarnail Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale. In his statement, Kumar Vishwas stated that he holds deep respects for all Saints and Gurus, however he did not specifically take name of Sant Bhindranwale in his apology. Vishwas stated that his clip was taken out of context and he had no intention to harm religious harmony.
