After 9/11 much violence was suffered by the Sikh Community because of confusion over their identity and the practices of their faith.  Here in Arizona two Sikh individuals were shot, one was killed in a violent act of revenge following the attacks in 2001.  We join with our brothers and sisters to help spread awareness and peace among all people.
