Brampton Khalsa Community School Vandalized with Hate Graffiti

Brampton, Canada: UNITED SIKHS is concerned about the vandalism of the Khalsa Community School at Maitland Street in Brampton, Ontario. The school wall was sprayed with "KKK" letters and the swastika signs.

** Note : Ku Klux Klan, often abbreviated KKK and informally known as the Klan, is the name of three distinct past and present far-right organizations in the United States, which have advocated extremist reactionary currents such as white supremacy, white nationalism, and anti-immigration, historically expressed through terrorism. Since the mid-20th century, the KKK has also been anti-communist. The current manifestation is splintered into several chapters with no connections between each other; it is classified as a hate group. It is estimated to have between 3,000 and 5,000 members as of 2012.

Brampton has the largest population of South Asians, consisting of approximately 35% of the total population of the city. UNITED SIKHS condemns this act of hatred and mischief and will resist any such attempt by way of education and bringing awareness into the communities through multifaith activties.

Khalsa School Brampton Canada Wall Vandalized by Miscreants on 9th July Swastika & Symbols of "KKK"

UNITED SIKHS community legal advocate, Deepinder Singh, said, "We appeal to the community to remain peaceful and not to react and let the police do their work to assess the incident. Brampton is known to be a very peaceful city and for its friendly multicultural population".

Sukhwinder Singh, Director of UNITED SIKHS, said, "I am in pain to see such growing incidents in Canada. Hatred doesn't cease by hatred. Sikhs have lived in Canada for years and are one of the major contributors to its economy. Sikhs with other communities celebrated Canada Day on 1st July in a grand style. This incident indicates that there is still a strong need for Multifaith interaction between communities and there is a lot of work to do."

UNITED SIKHS extends their support to the staff and students of Khalsa Community School who have handled this situation in a very supportive and calm manner.

We also urge the community to maintain their calm and let the police continue with their investigation.
