^The question isn't about what the basis for Marla's deduction was, the question is whether the episode itself established Khan as a Sikh in dialogue. And it did so in two ways: one, by having Marla state it outright, and two, by giving him the surname Singh.
But do only Sikh men have the last name of Singh?

I know we had a Lieutenant Singh in Lonely Among Us.
What about Vijay Singh (the golfer)? He's from Fiji, and don't believe he's a Sikh...
