Chicago: In another gaffe, an Indian-origin Sikh in the US was misidentified as a Muslim supporter of Donald Trump in flyers distributed by the Republican presidential nominee’s campaign, said a media report.
Gurinder Singh Khalsa, a resident of Fishers city in Indiana who immigrated to the US from India, featured in the handbill advertisement with the word “Muslim” superimposed above his picture, WTHR TV channel reported. The flyers, distributed in Ohio to canvass for Trump, claimed that Khalsa was a Muslim Trump supporter. “I am not Muslim and I am not supporting Trump,” he was quoted as saying by the channel.
“He (Trump) is putting my picture, saying Muslims support him and I have nothing to do with it. I do not support Trump. Nobody even asked me to put that picture there. It was shocking, disturbing and this will create more confusion among people because they are sending it nationwide,” he said.
