A number of mainstream media outlets have come under fire for identifying a man performing acts of kindness in Manchester following yesterday’s attack as a Muslim, when in reality he is a Sikh.

Cosmopolitan appears to be catching most of the flack for their tweet (which appears to have been deleted) that read, “Muslim Taxi Drivers Took Kids Trying To Escape The Manchester Ariana Grande Concert Home For Free.”

The tweet included a photo of this man, who is apparently giving out free taxi rides for those affected by yesterday’s attack.

The purpose was clear – to suggest people calling out Islam following the attack are obviously racist because, hey, Muslims like that guy are out on the streets doing great things.

The problem? As the photo’s original poster, a man by the name of Harjinder S. Kukreja, confirms, that man is no Muslim.

It’s not just Cosmopolitan that goofed up; The Daily Mirror did, too.

Kukreja further thanked Jack Posobiec “for not tolerating this ignorance and speaking out.”

Posobiec was one of several tweeters who brought the SJW fail to Kukreja’s attention.

Unsurprisingly, many people are subsequently ripping Cosmopolitan and The Daily Mirror to shreds.

Many Sikh’s are, in fact, out in full force committing acts of kindness following yesterday’s attack.

Tweets from Kukreja’s profile show pictures of the efforts, which include the setting up of water stations and marching in solidarity with the victims.

According to Manchester Evening News, the death toll following yesterday’s attack currently stands at 22.

The outlet puts the number of those injured at 120.

Meanwhile, police have named 22-year-old Salman Abedi as the bomber. ISIS hailed him as a “soldier of the caliphate,” taking responsibility for the attack.

    The msm so needed a muslim hero, you know, to counter the muslim that slaughtered 22 people and injured 50+. Failed again msm.

    • NoTreading

      And instead, they picked someone of another faith that’s been attacked by islam. Pathetic.

      • HT

        But not surprising. The left wing media aren’t known for their investigative abilities. Even when it’s staring them in the face.

  • Harmless Immigrant

    The moment I saw the story I knew it was “Very Fake News” or the reporter was “Very Dumb”.

  • AverageJoe1987

    Pathetic.

    The media, so desperate to deflect away from ANOTHER MUSLIM TERROR ATTACK, by singing the praises of a Muslim hero giving free rides who wasn’t even Muslim.

    And even if he had been Muslim, so what? Giving free rides doesn’t make up for the dead and injured.

    • Heywood Jablowme

      Yeah but the guy tried and he shared what he had and that is pretty good. Guy did the right thing.

  • misha1d1

    Anything to support the narrative. How about really nice dude offers free rides home after attack?

  • Slam256

    This is why I hate the MSM. They are liars inventing facts. They are the fake news.

    How can someone be so ignorant. I work with a lot of Middle Eastern folk. I met more people who speak English as a second language (and who lie about it being their first) than people who speak it natively in the past like 5 years or so. Even I know what a Sikh is.

      Look at Buzz Feed videos these people are twits and “Harold Steptoe”s hard left guys who think they’re wiser and better people. than they really are

      • Peter

        Right, I see. Try to actually live a life first and see it, rather than reading a stupid textbook no social studies.

  • Phelin M’Quirk

    Sikhs have a long history of bearing the brunt of Muslim violence and oppression. They knew what it was like well before they came to the UK.

  • Heywood Jablowme

    Sihks good muslims…. Sihks and hindus are not muslims that is so racist. But seriously we know who is who. Thanks cool sihk guy seriously. Takes a real good person to look out for lost children.

  • Pat Patrix

    Sikh’s generally enrich the culture of the areas they immigrate to, especially traditional ones. Their religion demands that they serve as public servants to people regardless of religion or race and teaches them to conform to the laws of the land. The turban and beard signify their commitment to their creed, some even carry a traditional dagger that signifies their commitment to defending others. Their food is really good too.

    Basically the opposite of Islam.

      My corner shop is Sikh owned, when our local post office closed he took on the task within his shop, i always call him dad and his sons been my friend for 25 yrs, wouldn’t be the same without him in the community. Sikhs blend in, treat people as they would like to be treated. Muslims on the other hand…the women are way more tolerant and excepting compared to the men.
      Dated a few gorgeous muslim women but if there parents found out there lives would not be worth living, they do not tolerate them mixing with other races.

    Surely telling the truth about a Sikh doing good things is “islamophobic” and “provocative” and “racist” (™) and “playing into ISIS’ hands”? Because colonialism and slavery or something.

  • PaulMurrayCbr

    Every Sikh has a religious duty to carry a knife – the “Kirpan” – at all times, although these days it’s often a ceremonial or symbolic knife. How did this some about? Forced conversions to Islam, back in the day. Sikhism used to be pacifist, but the muslims made warriors of them.

    Any time I’m queuing up for a taxi, I wait for the taxi with the dude in a turban.

    Not all news sources are fake. Just the ones ran by libtards and dumocrats

  • hero37

    I feel sorry for anyone mistaken as a Muslim. He should sue for defamation of character

  • STEVE

    Lets be honest, if this guy was a Muslim taxi driver no young girls gonna take up the offer of a free ride after last weeks documentary “3 Girls”.

  • BooBooBaby

    God Bless the Sikh people!
    They’re are so nice and wonderful!

    How come these ignorant Lying Lefty Racist Race Baiting Whiny Loser Nutjob LIBERAL DemonRat CryBaby Hypocrite Snowflake Libt4rds don’t know the difference!? It is easy to see the difference between them and Muslims!

  • banjobean2017

    This was intentional–trying to soften the Islamic reign of terror. There are no Muslims doing good things–the entire religion follows a pedophile that had a 6 year old wife–all are sick. If he is their holy prophet, what does that say about the entire religion.
