Florida [US], July 28 (ANI): A Sikh community leader in Oviedo city of US’ Florida had a hateful message spray-painted on a car at his home.
Amit Pal Singh, chairman of the Sikh Society of Central Florida, had the expletive message written in paint on his son’s car while it was parked in front of his house in the Oviedo area on July 25, according to media reports.
United Sikhs, a civil rights and humanitarian non-profit organization, condemns this assault and urged law enforcement agencies to take swift and direct action against all perpetrators.
“Over the past few decades instances of bullying, violence and hate crimes have been commonplace for Sikhs across the United States. The community because of its visible identity has had to face routine injustice and has been targeted for their distinct appearance,” United Sikh said in a statement.
“These instances have especially been prevalent recently due to the racial animus and economic uncertainty which has gripped the nation,” it added
In a recent incident, the United Sikh said that Singh was a “victim of hate language” sprayed across his car on July 25.
“Alarmingly, he was targeted at his home as assailants vandalized his personal vehicle with a racist message in an effort to intimidate and ostracize him. United Sikhs stand firmly with and are representing Singh to ensure that justice prevails,” the statement read. (ANI)
