Recall Campaign for Hitman 2 Video Game

Eidos Interactive ( has recently published a video game called Hitman 2 that features turbaned and bearded Sikh men being killed within a Gurdwara whose description matches the Golden Temple in Amritsar. Leaders in the Sikh community are working together to put pressure on the company to recall the game and alter the storyline and the images. In the meantime, Sikhs across the world are protesting the sale and distribution of this video game. The game trains its users to kill not some fantasy-created bad guys, but an ethnic and religious minority of 26 million people. If this game is allowed today, then any religious group and any place of worship such as a Synagogue, a Church or a Mosque, may become the next setting for violence and bloodshed in the name of entertainment. Sikhs cannot allow videogame developers to use sacred religious settings to promote killings and intolerance.
