Incorrect Mention Of Sikhs In Law And Order


Recommended Posts

Something struck me as controversial in the new episode of Law and Order airing as I write. The episode is about a man who uses religion as a tool to justify a murder. He says that if his daughter's teacher continued to teach evolution in school, the teacher would make her a non-believer. He kills the teacher, Mr. Nash, and says that if he didn't kill the teacher, God would have exacted His wrath on the daughter at any moment. A lawyer questions his reasoning. The lawyer claims that the man in question is schizophrenic, as his "magical thinking" suggests. The lawyer follows up by asking, "Since God has allowed millions of non-believers to live, Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs... What makes you so certain that He was going to hurt your daughter?" Sikhism is clearly a religion that believes in God. The writers of Law and Order are intelligent people; why, then, would they label Sikhs as non-believers? Please do not debate the argument about God's wrath being mentioned in the show. Instead, let's talk about this "Sikhs being non-believers" issue and what can be done about it.

Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa!

Waheguroo jee kee Fateh!

Umm.. i don't know why you interpreted it that way:

It sounds like the lawyer was questioning the guy who sees EVERYONE but those who subscribe to his beliefs as "non-believers". That includes Hindus, muslims, sikhs, buddhists, jews, ...

In fact, by posing the question that way, he reenforces the fact that this guy is crazy and believes that everyone is a non-believer besides fanatics like himself. I don't think it was meant to impact sikhs or any of the other listed faiths in that way.
