Why is Obama afraid of being branded a Muslim if he dons a Sikh head covering?

A visit by Barack Obama to the holiest of Sikh shrines may be cancelled because his advisers do not want the US President to wear a headscarf – fearing that it could fuel rumors that he is a secret Muslim.

The Australian Mr Obama had planned to see the temple when he travelled to India next month but his advisers are said to have ruled out the headscarf option, fearing that in some people’s minds, it would connect him with militant Islamism.

But he wasn’t afraid of being branded a Muslim for donning real Muslim attire several times before…
