Controversial GAP ad portrays false image of Sikh religion

Published: Thursday, Dec. 12, 2013 - 1:10 pm

Re “Some Sikhs fear effect on religion” (Our Region, Dec. 6): I oppose the sexy GAP ad featuring a Sikh man with an adoring woman. It disrespects the Sikh religion by showing suggestive body language. The ad is also a false image since the religion prohibits any body contract between opposite genders except within marriage. The ad might try to show a break from religious hatred and ignorance, but there is a subliminal message focusing on racial differences and pulling people further from their moral beliefs to make them more westernized.
