As a side-bar link to the Ahmadiyya article Razib wrote about below, I found a similar story of outrage as American Sikhs excoriated Jay Leno for suggesting that Mitt Romney’s summer home was the Golden Temple. Usually you can find one fanatic to supply a juicy quote ripe for caricature–we are lucky, in this case, that the nut was Vayalar Ravi. He is India’s Overseas Affairs Minister and felt keenly that;
“It is quite unfortunate and quite objectionable that such a comment has been made after showing the Golden Temple….
The Golden Temple is the Sikh community’s most sacred place… The American government should also look at this kind of thing...Freedom does not mean hurting the sentiments of others... This is not acceptable to us and we take a very strong objection for such a display.
