FBI Asked to Track Data of Anti-Sikh Crimes

The son of a massacre victim at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin is asking the federal government to begin collecting statistics on hate crimes against Sikhs.

The 18-year-old Harpreet Sing Saini urged senators at a hearing Wednesday to give his late mother the dignity of being a statistic.

Saini's mother, Paramjit Kaur Saini, was among six people killed and four wounded by a gunman on Aug. 5 before a service was to begin.

    Are there actually any anti-Sikh crimes? Usually they happen because dumbasses mistake them for muslims.

    But I think the only people who specifically don't like Sikhs are muslims, ironically enough.
