Sikhs in the United States have taken an initiative to put an end to the hate crimes against the community by talking to the administration and compatriots in a dialogue.
“Sikhs in America have a great educational task. We need to inform and educate the great American public as to our beliefs in religious tolerance and in the values of all religions,” says Jaspreet Singh, of Sikh Council on Religion and Education (SCORE), a community think-tank in USA.
The organization recently held a conference to highlight challenges faced by the community in the wake of the September 11 terrorist strikes in the country.
Several Sikh community leaders underlined the importance of cross-faith participation to combat hate crimes and to work together on progressive politics. The suggestion drew positive response from representatives of various US departments.
