After US Shooting, Sikh Group Asks Community To Be Cautious

In the wake of the gunning down of four marines at military facilities in Tennessee by a Muslim youth with “unshorn beard”, a Sikh rights group has asked Sikh-American community members to exercise caution as they become vulnerable to hate crimes following such incidents.

The caution came after a 24-year-old gunman opened fire at two US military centres in Tennessee yesterday, killing four marines in a rampage that officials said was being probed as an act of “domestic terrorism.” The shooter was identified by the FBI as Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez.
