Sikh community speaks out
SIKHS OF AMERICA
'I wanted to let my community know that yes my skin is brown and my hair is dark but that does not make me and my family muslims or terrorist, and we are just as American as the people that immigrated here when America was first established.'
'In this small community that I live in, most people are small minded, they do not see anything further then the city limits, or the church on the corner. Most believe that there should be no other way other then the Christian way of living. I am not saying that they are wrong because just like me they have the right to believe in anything that satisfies them, but they do not need to say others are wrong for believing in other things.'
Hear Harpreet in her own words, and see other testimonials from Sikhs around the country.
