Australian Sikh community outraged over smoking cartoon

Canberra: Sikhs in Australia have expressed outrage after a daily published a cartoon of a Sikh man smoking a cigar, a media report said on Friday. 
"You would never see a person of Sikh faith smoking -- not even a cigarette, let alone a cigar, so it just seems out of context," Special Broadcasting Service (SBS) quoted the executive producer of its Punjabi programme Manpreet K Singh as saying.
"Obviously people who follow the religion feel outraged about it," she added.
The cartoon was published in the Herald Sun on Thursday.
