US bar displays pictures of Sikh Gurus, outrages community
Washington: A pub in the city of Hollywood near Los Angeles has displayed full size posters of Sikh Gurus in their bar area, outraging the community members and forcing the owners to issue an apology.
Pikey Bar agreed to take down the pictures of Sikh Guru after community members lodged a protest with the pub owners.
"We have lodged a protest," Satnam Singh Chahal, the executive director of the North American Punjabi Association (NAPA), told a news agency.
"This is outrageous," he said, adding that he urged the management of the Pikey Bar to immediately remove these posters.
"Manager of the Bar has assured us that these pictures of Sikh Gurus will be removed immediately. They have apologised for this act," Chahal said.
