SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, April 6,2001: Shocking the sizable Sikh community of New South Wales, the Daily Telegraph newspaper mistakenly published a fish curry recipe and pasted it over the dome-shaped structure of a local gurdwara, known as God's place. Giani Balbir Singh, the priest of the gurdwara in Turramurra, was disconcerted when the caption accompanying the picture featuring himself and his wife implied that they would be cooking the fish curry inside the gurdwara. Singh assured the Sikh community that, as an ordained priest, he does not cook or eat meat in the gurdwara or anywhere else. Publishing a retraction the next day, the newspaper apologized for their error and the subsequent embarrassment to Giani Singh and the Sikh community.
