A Facebook post by a Sikh man detailing abuse he received in Poland has gone viral and made news the world over.
Navjot Sawhney of Malmesbury states he was punched and spat on by a bouncer of Krakow nightclub Shakers due to his appearance and a perceived association with terrorism. This story reiterates an issue Sikh PA have been attempting to have discussed in wider, more public spheres; Sikhs are among the biggest victims of Islamophobia due to connotations between a beard/turban and terrorists.
For further comment on this issue from campaigners and activists or if you are a Sikh that has suffered similarly, please contact us on Media@SikhPA.com. See below for links to coverage on the issue.
