White House officials have stopped President Barack Obama from visiting the Golden Temple in Amritsar, India, over concerns that coverage could strengthen a belief he is a secret Muslim.
The temple – called Harmandir Sahib – is the spiritual centre of the Sikh religion and one of India’s most popular tourist attractions.
It was scheduled to be the third stop on Mr Obama’s visit to the country next month, but it has now been cut from the itinerary because of the impact it could have in the U.S.
According to Sikh tradition, Mr Obama would have to cover his head before entering the temple.
Mr Obama, a Christian, has been dogged by persistent rumours that he is a Muslim and Sikhs in the U.S. have been occasional targets of anti-Muslim discrimination and violence in America.
