Hitman 2 Backlash

The SikhNet News' Hitman 2 Video Petition (thanks Computer and Video Games) looks to inspire a recall of Hitman 2. Here's the deal: "SikhNet has partnered with thirty-five Sikh organizations around the globe to demand that video game publisher, Eidos Interactive, recall one of its games from the market. The game, Hitman 2, incites racism and hatred against Sikhs and Dalits by linking them to terrorism. The game glorifies violence against Sikhs within a Gurdwara that looks like the Harmander Sahib, also known as the Golden Temple, while Dalits are portrayed as followers of an evil cult leader, according to a vivid description that was recently removed by Eidos from its web site."

152. I'M SIKH Oct 31, 2002, 19:01 I'M SIKH
 
What up guys...
I'm a 18 yr old sikh male born and raised in Vancouver, Canada but a true indian at heart...
Shyt i loved hitman 1 and i love hitman 2...I could give less of a shyt about who they kill in the game but the thing that bothers me is the fact that the missions takes place at a temple that resembels the golden temple...
In 1984 the indian army stormed the golden temple (know as Opertaion Blue Star) in a effort to capture freedom fighters held up in the temple...Many innocent lives were lost in this "operation"...ppl jus doin their daily paryers got killed ( o yea and indra ghandi was assasinated as a result of this opertaion ) and i think that when ppl see the golden temple used as a secene of violence it doesnt make them feel good not only beacuse of the fact that violence has taken place but the fact that the original Sikh holy book know as the guru garanth shabi is in the golden temple which was actually written by our final guru in or around 1700 (not too sure)...

But hey im still playin it...
