DTT: An 82 year old Sikh man was preparing free meals for the homeless when he was attacked because the attacker thought he was Muslim. This attack happened as a result of the hate and propaganda being peddle by the media and neo-Nazi groups.

The thug who attacked Mr. Piara Singh is facing 13 years in jail.

The man who committed a hate crime against an elderly man in California is believed to have misidentified the victim’s religious identity, KFSN reports.

Gilbert Garcia, Jr., a resident of Fresno, California, bashed 82-old Piara Singh two years ago. He has admitted to his crime but his sentencing has been delayed three times.

“It’s not acceptable to attack an old, 82-year-old, person minding his own business outside our temple,” said Sikh community advocate Ike Grewal.

Garcia had used a metal pipe to beat the elderly man just outside his Sikh temple in Southwest Fresno, where he’d been preparing free meals for the hungry. Garcia was silent during the attack, but according to investigators, he had shouted that he hated“those people” and wanted to bomb their temples after being arrested, according to the Los Angeles Times.
