It's really not that complicated. Pendus had made that balle balle culture so synonymous with Sikhs in the past, that even eastern europeans and other whites corelated the two (barn dance culture and Sikhs). Now that culture might be your culture (?) but it isn't the culture of a lot of Sikhs, and even with this, many Sikhs from this background don't really identify with all that colourful prancing about anyway. Remember this recently?
