Delaware Sikhs Honor Those Killed At Wisconsin Temple Three Years Ago

Aug 5, 2015


The Sikh community in Delaware will be honoring those who died in an attack on a temple in Wisconsin three years ago leaving six dead and four wounded.

The 40 year old gunman was a neo-Nazi who may have believed he was killing Muslims.

But they were members of the Sikh community which is the 5th largest religion in the world.

The Wilmington News Journal reports that on August 15th the Sikh community will gather at a new temple near the Summit Airport as part of a day of community service and outreach.

The peaceful religion dates back to the 15th century but its members often have encountered insults in the aftermath of the 911 terrorist attacks.
