Chandigarh: Music composer Vishal Dadlani on Wednesday met Jain monk Tarun Sagar and apologised to him in person for his sarcastic tweet on the spiritual figure that had kicked up a storm. The monk asked him to seek forgiveness from the Jain community for hurting their sentiments.
After the composer apologised as per the Jain community’s tradition of seeking ‘Panch Mafee’ that included holding of ears, Sagar said though he had already forgiven Dadlani, now he would appeal to the community to forgive him and withdraw protest against him and treat the matter as closed.
Sagar said: “Anyone can make a mistake, even me, it is not a big thing, but realisation of the same is important and one should forgive such a person.”
“It was Jain community’s request that if Vishal appears before me, he should be asked to seek ‘Panch Mafee’ and the matter will end there,” Sagar said. After this, Vishal stood before Sagar with folded hands and was even made to hold his ears and apologised as directed that also included the composer saying that in future he will never hurt
anyone’s religious sentiments. DP
