Six members of the 400-person congregation of the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin were murdered by a white supremacist on Sunday, August 5th, 2012.
“In this hour of grief, we thank the thousands of people around the globe who have offered their support and their prayers, and we encourage them to support those victims and families who are most in need. Together, we must work to repair our community and finally address the epidemic of violence in America,” said Amardeep Kaleka, who is the son of Satwant Singh Kaleka and a co-founder of Serve 2 Unite.
The six victims killed included five men: Satwant Singh Kaleka, 65, the founder of the temple; Prakash Singh, 39, an assistant priest; Sita Singh, 41; Ranjit Singh, 49; Suveg Singh, 84; and one woman: Paramjit Kaur, 41. Punjab Singh, a Sikh Priest, was critically injured and remains in a coma today.
Serve 2 Unite is a response to this atrocity. In utter defiance of fear, ignorance, and hatred, we cultivate courage, wisdom, love, and human kinship on our Earth.
