Elderly Sikh Man Suffers Pelvic Fracture in Attack

According to a Yuba City, California publication:
An eighty year old Turbaned Sikh gentleman was victimized by some Yuba City youngsters as he was biking back from Guru Nanak Sikh Temple on Bogue Road to his home in labor Camp on Garden Highway on Jan 21 st. According to Mr. Harbans Singh, first rocks were thrown at him from the back and he was called different names. He first tried to avoid all this but then a person came out of red van and pushed him off his bike. He fell on the road, causing a pelvic fracture. A compassionate bystander called the ambulance , assuming this was an accident when she saw him lying on the road.

Mr. Singh was taken to the local hospital by ambulance and released that same day. He could not walk and get up and was taken back to hospital on Jan 24th and found to have a pelvic fracture. He stayed in the Hospital until January 28 th. He says that many other Sikh elders have been facing unwanted ridicule at by ignorant people. So far no arrests have been made.... Mr. Singh has lived in US for nearly a decade and loves biking. He is a simple and pious man , belonging to the Namdhari sect of Sikhs. He says he has changed his style of tying turban since 9/11 to avoid any confusion with the style of turbans worn by people in Middle East.
