    In a possible hate crime, the horse of a Sikh man in the US state of Tennessee has been shot dead from a close range. Devinder Sandhu said the horse, named Misty Blue, was apparently shot dead on Tuesday, according to local media reports. “Sandhu is Sikh and wears a turban. He fears someone may have targeted him, but hopes that wasn’t the case,” a local news channel said, adding that the police ares investigating it as a possible hate crime.

    “So that we couldn’t hide or blend into the crowd, so we could stand for our belief, which was protecting the innocent,” 61-year-old Singh said. “Misty Blue was born on our property and was our household pet. For 20 years the farm has been a place of delight and sanctuary for those who have visited. Since this happened it’s all been horrible,” Susan Eslick, wife of Sandhu, was quoted as saying by The Tennessean.

    The Sikh community has condemned the incident. “We condemn this barbaric action by a misguided individual who took this step of harming an innocent animal to scare the family and the community. We are shocked by this savagery,” said Sikh Council on Religion and Education’s Chairman Rajwant Singh. PTI

    That is sad news indeed.
     
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!
