Wisconsin Shooting Rattles Area Sikh Community

After seven people were shot and killed at a Sikh temple in Milwaukee, members of the New England Sikh Study Circle in Milford feel that their religious freedom has been threatened. “I think this is very tragic,” Malkit Singh Gill, the study circle’s president, said. “The country was founded on the belief that there should be no religious persecution.” Gill said that he does not know what’s next for the Sikh community, but that they plan on reaching out to the victims.
