    JALANDHAR: Canadian-Sikh Veerender Jubbal was once again wrongly branded as an Islamic terrorist on Friday when his morphed picture with the Quran was posted on Twitter, blaming him for the Nice attack.

    The same picture was circulated on Twitter immediately after the Paris attacks in November last year, blaming him for the same.
    This time, one `Saint Jon (Crumb)?', with Twitter handle @OfficialSamHyde, tweeted: "French Muslim Veerender Jubbal reportedly involved in #Nice terror attacks, posted pictures before committing them."

    This was circulated several times over. However, some Twitteratis countered the falsehood, one of them being ` Alexander Hamilton' with Twitter handle @ADHamilton91, say ing: "That's a photo-shopped picture that has been used countless times during attacks.Stop propagating false hatred."


    Simranjeet Singh, with the handle @SikhProf, who is assistant professor of religion at Trinity University , tweeted: "People are wrongly identifying my Sikh friend as being responsible for the #Nice attack.Please help end the rumours."

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!
