Chronicling Anti-Sikh Violence, and Now a Victim
A man of the Sikh faith, Prabhjot Singh, was maliciously attacked the night of the Nairobi false mall attack by a group of thugs. The thugs slurred him, identifying him as a ‘Muslim,’ calling out the the names “Osama” and “terrorist” and then launched an attack.
Note: it is not codified how many people have been attacked as a result of this Zionist crime; a Muslim woman, Somali in background, was apparently assaulted by the same group. It would not have happened if it wasn’t for the Zionist-generated lies:
RNS) Shortly after teenagers beat up a Columbia University physician Saturday (Sept. 21), a Muslim woman was attacked a few blocks away.
In addition, there was this attacking, where the woman was called a “F—ing terrorist and struck with a poster:
The attack was strictly inspired by the Zionist plot of the re-activation of Islamophobia by the claim that it was Muslim fanatics who attacked and killed dozens of people, including black Africans.
The attackers, as it turns out, were black. Was this a spontaneous vigilante attack by this group inspired by the Zionist-controlled media? Surely, this is the case. Our prayers and support go out to the Dr. and his family.

He had written about such attacks: Sikhs assaulted because they were wrongly perceived to be Muslim. But on Saturday night, Prabhjot Singh, a medical doctor and an assistant professor of international affairs at Columbia University, found himself the subject, rather than the chronicler, of such an attack.
A large group of teenagers and young men — as many as a dozen or more, the police said — set upon him as he walked with a friend near the northern edge of Central Park, beating them with their fists and feet in what the police said was a possible hate crime.
For Dr. Singh, 31, who is Sikh, it was an experience whose contours of misidentification, hate and violence were sadly familiar. “Our turban and beard are a trigger for fear in the minds of many Americans,” he said on Monday.
After the Sept. 11 attacks, Sikh men, conspicuous by their turbans, became frequent objects of misplaced anti-Muslim invective around the country. In 2003, three Sikhs were assaulted outside their home in Woodside, Queens, by men who taunted one of the men by calling him “Bin Laden.”
Dr. Singh said that just before the attack began, as he walked on 110th Street near Lenox Avenue around 8:15 p.m., someone yelled out a similar reference. “I heard, ‘Terrorist, Osama, get him,’ ” he recalled. One of the young men, who the police said were between ages 15 and 20, yanked his beard as the assault began.
“I started running,” Dr. Singh said.
But the assailants were on bicycles, the police said, and easily caught him and his companion, a fellow Sikh who Dr. Singh said asked not to be identified. The group punched both men, but “they mostly focused around me,” Dr. Singh said. He fell to the ground and felt kicks and punches to his body and face; his jaw was fractured. The assault ended when pedestrians intervened.
A man shouted at the young men to leave him alone, Dr. Singh said, and a nurse who lived across the street came to his aid. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he works, and released on Sunday, returning to his home near the scene of the attack, where he lives with his wife and 1-year-old son.
The police said a woman who wore a Muslim head scarf had been taken to the same hospital after being struck in the face by a liquid-filled plastic bottle about three blocks away and a little more than an hour later. The police were investigating whether the two episodes were related.
