    Sacremento, California (CHAKRA)– After being shot to death, a Sikh man’s funeral had hundreds of attendees paying their respects. In the Sacramento area, a Sikh man was shot to death while talking an afternoon stroll.

    Surinder Singh, an innocent man, decided to take a walk one afternoon, not aware of the fact that this would be his last walk ever. His funeral had several hundred attendees who came to pay their last respects from all over the city.

    On March 4th, 65-year-old Singh and his 78-year-old friend, Gurmej Atwal, were taking a walk in the Elk Grove neighbourhood, when both men were shot. Singh died and Atwal was critically wounded.

    Police are investigating and are looking into the possibility of a random hate crime against the two men because they were wearing turbans and both had long beards. Sikhs have been common targets for hate crimes in the USA ever since 9/11 due to the fact that many Islamic terrorists also have beards and wear turbans, such as Osama Bin Laden.

    No arrests have yet been made but there is a reward of $42 000 for any tips given that will lead to an arrest and conviction.

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!
