Negative and Positive views of Sikhs in the Media
The Media knowdays are Stereotyping the Sikhs and any unbiased person can easily guess the hands behind such propaganda. Now let us make a Detailed list of the Movies, Serials, Video Albums, Advertisements and everything else in Media which tried to defame Sikh Identity. From this data we will be able to make a report which will reveal the more bitter truths about the issue.
In this list I want you to post as following:
- Name of the movie, album or serial
- Year : in which it was released
- Write in one line (not in detail) the objectionable character or scene.
This may include:
- Making jokes on Sikhs like the movies Raja Hindustani, Mission Kashmir etc
