In today's world of multi-culturalism and diversity, I find it odd that the person who probably represents it fairly well, has turned out to be a parochial, provincial and narrow minded when it comes to covering his head in the Golden Temple.
As seen to the right, Barry has no issue dressing in the local muslim garb of his homeland. In fact he has covered his head. How odd. If he did it for Kenyans, why not for the Sikhs?
I wouldn't object if I was invited to a Sikh temple. In fact, I find Indian people charming, I love their food (the mint chutney is outstanding), and Sikhs specifically have and interesting religion and culture. Read here from the Wiki:
Seems more reasonable than Islam, that's for sure, although I don't want to be accused of pitting religions, but their religion seems progressive by even today's standards, particularly with regards to equal rights. You would think that Barry would honor such a religion. I guess not. May be he's not a fan of curry.
I would remind Barry that India is a capitalist democracy in an area of the world where that is a rare thing and should be supported. In fact, outside of our European allies and Israel, India is a friend, always. We should respect that friendship and honor it. He has done neither.
Thank you for reading this blog. Namaste.
