    People have found Ashton's portrayal of a Bollywood film producer as 'offensive'. Aren't these the same people who have been doing lame portrayal of the Sikhs for years? Showing them as a goofy, funny and totally unreal characters, stereotyped beyond death? And of course ignoring the protest! Dear Bollywood, like you show in your movies, what you do to others comes back at you!

    Wow... people are way too easily offended and need to lighten up some!! It's a JOKE, a COMEDY, an obviously stereotyped, stupid, comical routine designed to take the p!ss out of dating agencies. Really the agencies should be the ones offended! haha

    1. If I had to choose, I'd pick Nigel, he'd probably enjoy Crosby, Stills and Nash with me while making paper mache flowers or something. hahaha

    2. Do the Jews find Darl's dog offensive? He only eats kosher after all!

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
