It would really interesting to hear your reaction to this.<br /><br /><strong>Synopsis</strong>: AMRITSAR: Model-turned-actress and TV anchor Mandira Bedi has once again earned the ire of the Sikh community for sporting an Ek Onkar (God is one) tattoo on her nape, with community leaders threatening to drag her to court for hurting religious sentiments if she did not have the tattoo removed immediately.<br /><br />On Wednesday, Mandira Bedi, who attended a dealers meet of Jaypee Cement at Zirakpur on the outskirts of Chandigarh along with Sachin Tendulkar, flaunted the tattoo with the symbol in Gurmukhi on her bare nape, leading to protests.<br /><br />This was the second time she is facing the wrath of the Sikhs, after she was warned by the Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee (SGPC) in 2007 for walking the ramp with the same tattoo on. Bedi said on Wednesday that she respected the religious sentiments of the Sikhs and that she had planned to undergo a plastic surgery to have it removed but could not find time.<br /><br />Baldev Singh Sirsa, special secretary, Shiromani Akali Dal (Panch Pardhani) said he would move court against her, seeking action under Section 295 A of IPC that entails action for deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings or any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs. Meanwhile, jathedar of Akal Takht Giani Gurbachan Singh has given her a two-month ultimatum to remove the tattoo. <br /><br /><strong>For more comments click here:: <a href="">Mandira's Tattoo Leaves Akal Takht Fuming</a><br /><br />** <strong>How Do I Share Your Views?</strong> Please note to share your views, you must <a href="">Login (click here)</a> to the forum and then post your views in the relevant topic(s).<br /><br />Gurfateh,<br /><br /><a href="">Sikh Philosophy Network</a><br />Think Discover Share Learn Evolve<br /><a href="">Contact Us</a><br /><br /></td><br /></tr><br /></table><br /><table class="tborder" width="100%" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="1"><tr> <td class="tcat" colspan="2"><a href=""><font size="4" face="arial,helvetica"><B>Sikh Philosophy Network Newsletter</b></a></td></tr><tr> <td class="alt1Active">Today's Date 17-May-2010.<br /><br />Activity since 11-May-2010 </td></tr></table><br /><table class="tborder" cellspacing="2" cellpadding="6" width="100%"><thead><tr> <td class="thead"><b>Title:</b></td> <td class="thead"><b>Thread Starter:</b></td> <td class="thead"><b>Thread Start Date:</b></td> <td class="thead"><b>Replies:</b></td> <td class="thead"><b>Views:</b></td> <td class="thead"><b>Last Post:</b></td> <td class="thead"><b>Username:</b></td></tr><tr class="tcat"> <td colspan="7"><b><i>-- Threads posted most recently --</i></b></td></tr><tr class="alt1"> <td><a href="">How Punjab was won</a><br /></td> <td>Soul_jyot</td> <td>17-May-2010</td> <td>0</td> <td>11</td> <td>06:33 AM, 17-May-2010</td> <td>Soul_jyot</td></tr><tr class="alt1"> <td><a href="">Anti-Sikh Cultist Leader Of Nirmala Sect Shot Dead</a><br /></td> <td>Narayanjot Kaur</td> <td>17-May-2010</td> <td>2</td> <td>25</td> <td>06:18 AM, 17-May-2010</td> <td>Narayanjot Kaur</td></tr><tr class="alt1"> <td><a href="">Sikh-American U.S. Federal Attorney to Prosecute Times Square Bomber</a><br /></td> <td>Narayanjot Kaur</td> <td>17-May-2010</td> <td>0</td> <td>15</td> <td>05:39 AM, 17-May-2010</td> <td>Narayanjot Kaur</td></tr><tr class="alt1"> <td><a href="">India set to ban 100 Al Qaeda-linked groups</a><br /></td> <td>Narayanjot Kaur</td> <td>17-May-2010</td> <td>0</td> <td>13</td> <td>05:32 AM, 17-May-2010</td> <td>Narayanjot Kaur</td></tr><tr class="alt1"> <td><a href="">Amarinder's statement is contrary to facts</a><br /></td> <td>Narayanjot Kaur</td> <td>17-May-2010</td> <td>0</td> <td>16</td> <td>05:29 AM, 17-May-2010</td> <td>Narayanjot Kaur</td></tr><tr class="alt1"> <td><a href="">Sajjan to be charged with murder</a><br /></td> <td>Narayanjot Kaur</td> <td>17-May-2010</td> <td>0</td> <td>9</td> <td>05:25 AM, 17-May-2010</td> <td>Narayanjot Kaur</td></tr><tr class="alt1"> <td><a href="">Mathematics in Scripture?</a><br /></td> <td>mattqatsi</td> <td>17-May-2010</td> <td>7</td> <td>53</td> <td>06:44 AM, 17-May-2010</td> <td>mattqatsi</td></tr><tr class="alt1"> <td><a href="">No BJP leader tried to stop Babri demolition: police officer</a><br /></td> <td>Tejwant Singh</td> <td>17-May-2010</td> <td>1</td> <td>22</td> <td>00:33 AM, 17-May-2010</td> <td>Narayanjot Kaur</td></tr><tr class="alt1"> <td><a href="">Whose Golden Temple?
