He Was 12. He Had Just Moved to America. Then His Sikh Father Was Murdered.

The Washington Post’s Julie Zauzmer reports that Saturday marked the five-year anniversary of the shooting at the Sikh temple in Oak Creek,Wisconsin, where a white supremacist killed six members of the congregation. Prabhjot Singh Rathor, who was 12 when his father was killed in the attack, recalls the community’s support two days after the shooting: Hundreds of people of different faiths took part in a candlelight vigil in the temple parking lot, and many of them wore white turbans in solidarity. Prabhjot, who still attends the temple where his father died, said, “This is like a God house. You can’t really resist. You have to be here.”
