I was listening to LBC radio (UK) this morning, Thursday 25th September 2014, and a rep from the Sikh Council telephoned in, not as an invited guest but wanted to make sure his gravity of status was mentioned, to object to the word bumfluff being used! The subject was about a muslim school girl wanting to wear a burkha in class. But this person was very upset that the presenter had used the word bumfluff which when James O'Brien, the host, was younger a teacher had asked him to shave it off as it was not in line with school rules. The Sikh council guy was going on about how offensive this word was and it would affect a lot of young people growing up and hundreds of people would telephone in to complain. By the end of the conversation the presenter reminded the guy that not one objection had come in during the chat, the Sikh guy then resorted to playing the victim and saying you can do what you want as you own the radio station. It all ended up looking daft for no reason - please if you want to represent the Sikh faith get some media training or we all just end up looking foolish.
