Take Action: Tell the FBI to Track Anti-Sikh Hate Crimes

February 10, 2012 (Washington, DC) – As the Sikh community rightfully condemns the desecration of a Sikh Gurdwara building by vandals in Michigan, the Sikh Coalition notes with disappointment that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) refuses to track and document hate crimes against Sikhs.  We therefore call upon the entire Sikh community to sign a petition to the Justice Department demanding that  hate crimes against Sikhs be accurately documented.  

Currently, the FBI treats all bias crimes against Sikhs as anti-Muslim hate crimes.  In addition, the Sikh Coalition has learned that some agency personnel erroneously believe that Sikhs are members of a Hindu  sect.  For these reasons, the federal government has no means of tracking hate crimes against Sikhs.  To learn more about this issue, read our latest blog article.  

If you believe that the federal government should track hate crimes against Sikhs, please spare one minute of your time and sign our petition today. Please forward this email to your family and friends.
