Olympian blunder: Gulf News off the mark again

By John Cheeran
Again Gulf News does it. That is, how to invite ridicule upon it.
Today's (August 12, 2008) Gulf News front page has a story that hails Indian shooter Abhinav Bindra, who won the country's first individual gold in Olympics.
The writer says "the 25-year-old from the western state of Gujarat," (see the image)
Bindra is Indian, but he belongs to Chandigarh and Punjab. Gulf News Sport Editor, I gather that, is an Indian but cannot get even the name of the state right, when his countryman shoots a historic gold medal.
India's misery in Olympics ended on Monday with Bindra shooting it right.
When will Gulf News readers' misery end?
Who will shoot the nitwits who produce such miserable stuff day after day?
