    SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 30, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Anti-Defamation league (ADL) is urging law enforcement to thoroughly investigate the attack on a Sikh cab driver in Sacramento, CA. Harbhajan Singh was attacked on November 29 after picking up a fare. The assailants reportedly made references to Osama Bin Laden while beating and robbing the victim who was wearing a dastar - a Sikh turban.

    Daniel S. Sandman, ADL Regional Director for the Central Pacific Region issued the following statement:

    This brutal incident is deplorable. People of all faiths should be able to feel secure when expressing their religious beliefs. This hard working man was merely doing his job when he was apparently singled out because of his appearance. We are confident that law enforcement will do all it can to track down the culprits and, if appropriate, bring hate crime charges at the conclusion of the investigation.

    The Anti-Defamation League, founded in 1913, is the world's leading organization fighting anti-Semitism through programs and services that counteract hatred, prejudice and bigotry. Visit our website at www.adl.org.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
