Bobby friction clarification: My remarks on social media Re: Sikhs

I understand my use of the term "Sikh Taliban" as a metaphor has caused offence for some Sikhs. For that I apologise unreservedly. It wasn't my intention to cause pain to those people in the Sikh community who are upset by the remarks, and I hope they understand that was never intended whatsoever.
