    NEW YORK: In the wake of an arrest of a Pakistan-born US national Faisal Shahzad as the suspect behind the failed Times Square bombing plot, Mayor Michael Bloomberg warned against any anti-Muslim incidents.
    “We will not tolerate any bias or backlash against Pakistani or Muslim New Yorkers,” he said.



    Shahzad has been arrested in connection with the failed car bomb that was planned to go off in a crowded area of Times Square.


    The 30-year-old was arrested as he was reportedly trying to flee New York and go to Dubai by an Emirates flight on Monday.


    The suspect was in Pakistan for five months between April and August 2009, a Pakistan’s Interior Ministry official told New York Times.



    Earlier, the city experienced several cases of racist attacks against Muslims and Sikhs, who were mistaken to be Muslims because of their turbans and long beards, after the 9/11 terror attacks.

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!
