Obama: Not Visiting Famous Sikh 'Golden Temple' During India Visit - Angry Sikhs Say Obama Conveying Sikhs Are Muslims
Obama is pissing off the Sikh religion by deciding NOT to go to their famous Golden Temple when he visits their country next month.

"The Golden Temple, a sprawling and serene complex of gleaming gold and polished marble that is the spiritual center of the Sikh religion, is one of India’s most popular tourist attractions. Revered by Indians of all faiths, it is a cherished emblem of India’s religious diversity. So it was no surprise when the gold-plated marvel was promoted as the likely third stop on President Obama’s visit to India, scheduled for early November."

But! The way the article sounds, Obammer is afraid of having to wear a turban or other head piece in public because of scrutiny he may receive from people who claim he is a muslim. Cover your head out of respect is mandatory for ALL men who enter the Golden Temple, and has been done so by all famous heads of state and leaders in the past who have visited. Obammer apparently feels it will be mistaken that he infact is a muslim if he wears a turban...at least, that is what I'm raeding between the lines in the article. It also appears to be what the Sikhs think too. As you can see by the quote on the bottom here, the end of the article.

"“We have worked so hard to establish in America that Sikhs have a very different identity than Muslims,” Mr. Phoolka said. “It is very unfortunate that even the White House is conveying the message that there is no difference between Muslims and Sikhs.”"

I don't believe in worshiping any other God than the one I worship BUT...to show respect for another person's religion is necessary. It was apparent that Obammer was scared about his muslim background when he so out of turn made his claims to Christianity a couple weeks ago in a backyard get together. This was a staged event with a staged question to allow him to open his thoughts on Christianity and claim that he is a Christian. Now, I judge no man, lest I too be judged. However, observation of one's actions and their claims and evaluation of what we see is another thing altogether.

Obammer made the claim that he was not a muslim, yet...he is intent on making sure the world knows he is a friend to them, protector of them and is going out of his way to make sure they're getting what they want in America.

So...for him NOT to go to the Golden Temple is actually, A HUGE SHOW THAT HE IS A MUSLIM!!! Sikhs and muslims do not get along! They have been entrenched enemies for centuries.


From Wiki:

"During the partition of India in 1947, there was much bloodshed between Sikhs, Hindus and Muslims, there was mass migration of people from all walks of life to leave their homes and belongings and travel by foot across the new border, on trains and on land people were killed in what was felt to be revenge attacks.

Today in the Indian subcontinent, relations between Indians and Pakistanis are very positive since relations between India and Pakistan have improved overall in the last 10 years, both countries have experienced increased levels of tourism by Pakistani Muslims wishing to visit Indian Islamic shrines or sport events in India, or Sikhs wishing to visit the few historical gurudwaras in neighboring Punjab in Pakistan.

There are, however, tensions that remain in UK between Sikhs and Muslims regarding some allegations that some Sikhs have been forced to convert to Islam.

In 2009, the Taliban in Pakistan demanded that Sikhs in the region pay them the "Jizya" poll tax levied by Muslims on non-Muslim minorities.

In 2010 the Taliban attacked many minorities including Sikhs resulting in two beheadings."

This wiki article does not do true justice to the tensions between Sikhs and muslims. The statement alone from the original article I posted from Mr. Phoolka shows that Sikhs DO NOT WANT TO BE CONFUSED as muslims. They're working hard to refute that incorrect image.

Actually, if he IS a Muslim, visits the temple, and puts on a Sikh turban, he's commiting a very serious sin!

That's exactly what I'm talking about. His decision to NOT go into the temple conveys that he is indeed a muslim. There's nothing in Christian tradition that says you can't respect another man's religion.

I noticed this story hit more of the MSM today. Kind of funny...politics are so capable of robbing us of true reality. We constantly see things in the light of "If I do this, what will they think?" That's so much horse crap.

If he goes to the "Golden Temple" during a visit to India wouldn't that mean he would then have to go to a Muslim shrine during any visit to a Muslim nation?

A number of US Presidents have been to India and NONE have visited that Religious Shrine. The reasoning is probably the same I mentioned above ... start visiting a Religion Specific Shrine in any country and voila you have to start visiting Religious Specific Shrines all the time when the President travels.

Question for those shouting that he should visit this shrine:

Will you then be shouting if he visits Saudi Arabia that he should visit the big Cube in Mecca?

Somehow I think most of you would be utter hypocrites and take exactly the OPPOSITE position.

for the literalists
they would make you cover your head
but you don't have to wear a turban which is for actual sikhs
they often have free food
that particular temple is a political hot potato regardless of your politico-religious leanings

We need Obama in India like a hole in the head. Last he was in Mexico April'09 there was an outbreak of swine flu.

Don't miss the numeral 13 in the fairy tale below.

The number of people dying from malaria in India has been hugely underestimated, according to new research.

The data, published in the Lancet, suggests there are 13 times more malaria deaths in India than the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates.

The authors conclude that more than 200,000 deaths per year are caused by malaria.

The WHO said the estimate produced by this study appears too high.

Islam is funny, the Quran says join no names but their creed says Muhammad Rasul Allah, plus it says dont take nicknames but plenty of rappers profess Islam and they have nicknames, it says no compulsion in religion yet they have a creed, sikhism is probably closer to true islam then what half the muslims practice
