We pray for the innocent people who died in the senseless shooting at the Sikh Gurudwara in Oak creek, Michigan.
As an American, Muslim and an Indian, I stand by the Sikh community and hope to find long term sustainable solutions to prevent the shameless events like this from happening in our nation.
It is our duty to keep law and order and faithfully guard the safety of every citizen. Hate is one of the many sources of disrupting the peace in a society and it is our duty to track down the source of such hate and work on mitigating it. We have an obligation to maintain peace and justice in the society.
Standing up for others is the right thing to do, every human goes through a period of invincibility to vulnerability, and if we don't stand up for those who are vulnerable, then who will stand up for us when we are vulnerable?
As Americans we need to come together to build an America where no one needs to live in apprehension, discomfort or fear of the other.
We need to learn about each other and demystify the myths about the others.
