In another display of Secular Hypocrisy and Hatred against the Human Rights of all Religious Persons the DuPage County State’s Attorney, Robert B. Berlin announced on September 11, 2015 that Aggravated Battery charges have been filed against a 17-year-old who mercilessly beat Mr. Inderjit Singh Mukker, a 53-year-old man who was on his way to a grocery store in order to purchase goods for his family.
The defendant had been harassing the Sikh man by yelling a barrage of lewd insults against Mr. Mukkar simply because of his traditional beard and religious turban, which serve as constant masculine reminders to themselves and others of their vocational dedication to the Creator and their commitment to their immediate families, social communities and the rest of society at large.
“Terrorist!” “Bin Laden!” “Go back to your country!”
When the Sikh man decided to pull over to let the unruly young man pass him, the 17-year-old pulled in front of Mr. Mukkar’s automobile, preventing the 53-year-old from being able to flee the scene in self defense. After an exchange of words, the 17-year-old began beating the Sikh man who had remained in his automobile in a wise attempt to avoid a violent incident. The perpetrator beat Mr. Mukkar until he lost consciousness, and this because of his religious, cultural garb.
Although The Sikh Coalition has rightly demanded that this incident be prosecuted as a Hate Crime, the Dupage County Attorney’s Office has refused to do so, due to what seems to be an acquiescing to political pressure of an election year.
We strongly urge for all persons of Faith, regardless of religious persuasion (especially Christians) to contact The Sikh Coalition and express our solidarity with them in the defense of Religious Liberty for all persons, regardless of persuasion or tradition.
We also invite ALL CHRISTIAN CHURCHES to pray for Mr. Mukkar and his family during this time of great trial for them and their venerable, religious community. We also ask that Christian Pastors remind their congregations that the Sikh community has a history of defending the rights of Christians and standing in solidarity with them through public demonstrations and candle light prayer services.
We at THE CHRISTIAN NATION are working arduously in order to protect the Liberties that are secured through our American Constitution, as in the case of Ms. Kim Davis of Kentucky, who was recently jailed for obeying her Christian conscience.
We condemn this odious act and stand with our Sikh brothers in defense of their right to live out their righteous customs in the public square without fear of intimidation, persecution or death. In spite of our many sectarian differences, religious persons of all persuasions must unite in our God-given right to serve Him in accordance to our respective traditions in the public square and protect our families from hate crimes.
Unless we stand together, divided we will fall.
With a grieving heart we also pray for the 17-year-old, that he would repent of his act of bigotry, ask for forgiveness and reform his life. Like Christianity, the Sikh religion is a faith that promotes love, tolerance, peace, forgiveness and communal cooperation.
