Bay Area faith leaders respond to Sikh crisis

Posted on August 6, 2012

The San Francisco Bay Area faith community adds its condolences to the American Sikh community. We are repelled and saddened by the senseless act of violence against our Sikh brothers and sisters.

Violence against any religious community is an act of violence against all of us. We stand together in supporting religious freedom and the Constitution of the United States.
