Is This Some Kind Of Sick Joke?


India’s highest court is to hear an appeal next year seeking to ban jokes about the country’s minority Sikh community. Harvinder Chowdhury, a Sikh lawyer, said thousands of websites ridicule Sikhs, who number some 25 million, as “stupid, naive and foolish”.

She said the jokes violated the community’s fundamental “right to life and dignity”.

She added: “Enough is enough, as we Sikhs have endured a lifetime of mockery.

“I have fought with fellow lawyers in the courts for making fun of Sikhs,” Ms Chowdhury said.

She cited typical jokes made about Sikhs in India, including the following:

Sikh (on the phone): Doctor my wife is pregnant. She is having pain right now

Doctor: Is this her first child?

Sikh: No, this is her husband.

COMMENT: I always thought Groucho Marx was Jewish. Turns out he was a hindu.
