NEW YORK: Sikh leaders in California are unhappy that a seventh grade history book has been published without a photo of Guru Nanak, the founder of their religion.

The California State Board of Education declined to act on Thursday on new complaints from the community, who now want to see their religion's founder in textbooks - portrayed in the way they believe he looked.
