    while the photo is an unfortunate case of mistaken identity... there's not much we can do. uncyclopedia is a satire site. they'll print anything that anyone posts (like wikipedia) and it's all supposed to be absurd. they'll most likely laugh at our well intentioned complaints.

    that aside, i don't think it's correct to call this beadbi. as i understand it, sikhs don't attach any special significance to images, do we?

    like i said, it's unfortunate, and i don't like it, but i don't think it's worth getting too worked up over. the kind of people who read and post there probably don't care how we feel. :)

    suing them for what? what did they do that was illegal? if you can find the owner of the photograph you MIGHT get them for copyright infringement.

    but it's a satire site. they're protected under free speech.

    just like we can put pictures of indira gandhi in a toilet and no one can stop us, they can do the same with their mistakenly identified nihang.

    sorry, but there's really nothing we can do.

    better to worry about things we CAN fix.

    I have to say I agree with Jasleen ji.

    This is just a picture. It's sad that they confuse a Sikh with a Muslim, but other than that I don't find it insulting.

    Let it go, don't let wasteless anger build up in you.
