    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.

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!
