The Meme is Not Valid.
I saw this photo floating around on Facebook. And I have to take issue with it.

First off, the source of the image is Britain First a far right wing group in Britain that's anti immigrant, anti-Islamic, and anti-Catholic. Even if they are all nice enough on Facebook, it's still a bunch of British bigots.

Second, while the image presents Sikhism in a positive light, there is the underlying racist implication. Sikhs are the "good" Middle Eastern people, and it implies Muslims are the "bad' ones.

You know, in the same way America said the Chinese were the "good" Orientals and the Japanese were the "bad" ones?
