Sikhs in Britain have called for the government to break down faith-hate crimes into different religious groups.
Currently police are not required to monitor abuse or attacks by religion, but the Association of Chief Police Officers believes forces should do so.
Sikhs say they are increasingly being subjected to abuse from people who mistake them for Muslims.
The government says it has created new laws to combat faith-hate crimes which show such abuse is "intolerable".
Mejindarpal Kaur, from United Sikhs, said her community's concerns needed to be taken more seriously.
Ms Kaur told BBC's One's Heaven and Earth programme: "Police need to work with the community to actually find out why is the community not reporting incidents to them and if the community has built their own mechanisms, how can the police interact with that mechanism." [Link]
