LONDON — British lawmakers say Prime Minister David Cameron should complain to the United States about a Jay Leno routine that joked about the holiest site in the Sikh religion.
In a motion published at Parliament on Thursday, two legislators said Leno had shown a complete misunderstanding of the Sikh faith.
Leno made a joke on Jan. 19 on the "Tonight Show," when he showed a photograph of an impressive gold building and claimed it was Republican Mitt Romney's summer home.
The site was actually the Golden Temple, a revered Sikh site.
British opposition Labour Party lawmakers Virendra Shrama and John McDonnell proposed a motion demanding Cameron call on the United States to show more respect toward Sikhs.
The move does not compel Cameron to take any action.
