Harbhajan a Sorry Sikh

We read:

"India off spinner [cricketer] Harbhajan Singh has apologised for offending his Sikh community by appearing in an alcohol advertisement with his hair down.

Slogan-shouting protesters marched through the Sikh holy city of Amritsar, in the northern state of Punjab, and burnt Harbhajan's effigy after he appeared in the advertisement with teammates Mahendra Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh. Uncut hair covered by a turban is an article of faith of the Sikh religion.
