  • 2nd Attack in 2 Weeks: Another NYC Sikh Injured in Hate Attack

    August 8, 2014 (New York, NY) – A Sikh resident of New York City, who has chosen to remain anonymous, was attacked and injured on Roosevelt Island last night in an apparent hate crime. The attack occurred just days after another suspected hate crime, in which Sandeep Singh—a Sikh American—was run over and dragged on a public street in Queens by a driver in a pick-up truck. The Sikh Coalition is calling on the NYPD to investigate both attacks as hate crimes and urges witnesses to come forward.

    The Sikh Coalition urges witnesses to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS. The attack occurred at approximately 8:15 pm on Thursday, August 7th near a playground on the Queens side of Roosevelt Island.

You can email your messages to getwellsingh@sikhcoalition.org or mail them to the Sikh Coalition’s office at Get Well Singh c/o The Sikh Coalition, 50 Broad Street, Suite 1537, New York, NY 10004.
