Sikhs in India protest against Wisconsin Sikh temple shooting

August 6, 2012

Condemning the Wisconsin Sikh temple shooting incident, in which a gunman killed six and critically injured another three Sunday, hundreds of Sikhs protested in India Monday.

An unidentified bald, white man in his forties opened fire just before prayer services began in the 5-year-old Sikh temple. The gunman, who reportedly had a tattoo of 9/11 attacks on one his arms, was later shot down by a police officers. 

FBI has launched a probe into the shooting and has hinted that it could be an act of “domestic terrorism” while the Sikh community in the U.S believes it is a crime of “hate and ignorance.”

“We’re treating this as a domestic terrorist incident,” said Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards, as reported by Reuters.

The Sikh religion originated in India more than 500 years ago and has over 25 million followers all over the world. The community members and various Sikh groups in India, concerned over the rising crime rates against the Sikh community, held protest marches in Punjab, Delhi and Kashmir.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh condemned the attack.  ”I am deeply shocked and saddened to learn of the shooting incident that has resulted in the loss of precious lives and injuries to devotees attending a prayer service at a Gurudwara in Wisconsin, USA,” said a statement released by his office.

I do feel for the families, however what the fuck is America’s fault in this? Why attract more unwarranted hate towards our people?

Did they burn the Indian flag? Why are we burning their’s?
