Swastika graffiti and racial marking on Gurdwara premises in Orangevale

A Sikh Gurdwara in Orangevale, California has been defaced with swastika and “white power” graffiti in an apparent hate crime. This has happened on the intervening night of January 12 and 13. It was noticed on Monday morning.

Gurdwara started services in mid-December and was celebrating official grand opening according to Dimple Kaur Bhullar from the Guru Maneyo Granth Gurdwara Sahib Sangat.

In a statement, Sikh American Legal Defense and Education Fund, condemned the hate speech that defaced the Adware Sahib.
