A Haryana politician named Rambilas Sharma insulted the Sikh beard after being asked a question about farming. A Sikh journalist asked the politician about compensation to farmers due to loss but he responded back by talking about the Sikh beard.
The comment of the politician was totally uncalled for as it had absolutely nothing to do with the question. Rambilas avoided the question by picking on the Sikh beard.
He stated to the journalist, ‘your beard is tied while his (referring to the gentleman next to him) is tied.’ The Sikh man standing next to him further insulted the community after he started laughing after the comment.
