    Vigil for Sikh race victim
    9.33, Sun Nov 19 2006

    Hundreds of Sikhs have attended a prayer vigil at the site of a racist attack where a Sikh teenager had his hair cut off.
    They had travelled from all over the country to Pilrig Park in Edinburgh where the 15-year-old was set upon last Tuesday.
    He was subjected to a tirade of racist abuse and beaten before finally having his hair cut off.
    Hair is a religious symbol for Sikhs, and it is strictly against the religion to have it shorn.
    Chief Inspector Keith Chamberlain, from Lothian and Borders Police, said: "The rally at Pilrig Park was well organised and supported by not just the Sikh community but community leaders from a number of other faiths and local people."
    Some people had travelled from as far away as London to attend.
