Hindus stand in solidarity with Sikhs commemorating 2012 Wisconsin shooting victims
Hindus have joined Sikh Temple of Wisconsin Oak Creek (STWOC) in commemorating the victims of August five, 2012 shooting and paying tributes to the departed souls.
Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a
statement in Nevada (USA) today, commended the STWOC stand on this
issue: We must take a stand against violence by coming together with
kindness and love.
Zed, who is President of Universal Society of
Hinduism, said: We remember the martyrs of August five, 2012 (Suveg
Singh Khattra, Satwant Singh Kaleka, Ranjit Singh, Sita Singh,
Paramjit Kaur, Prakash Singh) on the second anniversary of the
shooting and our hearts go out to the victims and their families and
the community is still deeply saddened at this tragedy. It was a
senseless and shocking violence on a group of worshippers.
Mourning this loss, Rajan Zed pointed out that Sikhs
had made lot of contributions to USA and the world. Various faith and
inter-faith groups nationwide should join hands to express support to
the Sikh community and to spread the message of peace, love and
harmony at grassroots level, Zed stressed.
We stand in solidarity with the Sikh brothers and
sisters, Zed added.
