Editor: We urge all people of all faiths to stand united in condemnation of these cowardly acts. We urge people of all faiths to fearlessly stand together, united in love and peace and nonviolence.
The time for silence has long passed. The climate of hate and fear that some in America are attempting to build must be defeated by standing up and speaking out with fearless statements of compassion and the unity of all people of good will and open heart.
As Sikhs we will stand with you in the face of any threat. We stand ready to support and defend the rights of Jews, as well as people of all religions to practice their faith freely, without fear or intimidation. As enjoined by the founders of Sikhism and by the Constitution of the United States we will stand for the religious freedom and protection of the people of all religions.
