IOWA  --  A metro teenager is being recognized for his work to spread understanding about his religion.

JJ Kapur and his family are Sikh, which is a religion many people don't much about. This used to include JJ, who made a jaw-dropping mistake as a two-year-old.

"I looked at the TV screen and I pointed at the nightly news, and I shouted, 'Papa, Papa.' But my parents later told me that the image on the screen was not my father, it was Osama bin Laden," said JJ.
