is it hatred ?? is it mistaken identity ...??
The tragedy in Oak Creek, Wisconsin has put the spotlight on a fascinating, misunderstood religion.
I came to know from relatives and friends early morning on sunday about this shooting ..my heart goes out ..for people who lost their loved ones.
the president of the Gurudwara passed yesterday in hospital ..he was in critical condition,,,
Lt. Brian Murphy, 51, raced to the Sikh temple that was attacked Sunday and was met with nine bullets as he stood face-to-face with the shooter..A national Hero I wud .say our sincere thanks to this brave guy.
..Sikhs have always made their mark all over America ..I will not be shy here to say the place like Milwaukee where Darshan singh dhaliwal owns many gas stations and 1000 across US and many in milwaukee alone how come sikhs are not known in Wisconsin ?
|(darshan sigh dhaliwal right)|
In Michigan a major area of construction and properties are owned by sikh (Grewals)named as "Prestigious Singhs"on each property whether its apartments or assisted living or malls.. hundreds of Americans work at these places and know sikhs very well ... how sikhs are not known?
California major farming and export of fruits and dryfruits ..sikhs will be seen .. and many Americans work on these places too ..Didar Singh Bains richest sikh farmers in america!
how come sikhs are not known?
Briefly, what is Sikhism?A monotheistic religion founded in the 1400s in the Punjab region of India, based on the teachings of Guru Nanak Dev and his nine immediate successors. Sikh comes from the Sanskrit for "disciple" or "instruction." Sikhism is now the fifth largest religion in the world, with more than 27 million members, most of them living in Punjab. There are only about 314,000 Sikhs in the U.S., and some 3,000 Sikh families in southeastern Wisconsin, where the shooting took place.
Every American sikh today is hurting, "That turban has tragically marked us as automatically suspect, perpetually foreign and potentially terrorists."
President Obama has ordered the US flags to be flown at half mast until August 10 to honor the victims of the Wisconsin Sikh temple massacre. He also called for a "soul searching" to find ways to reduce violence in America.
