Sikh religion pursues peace, understanding

Local Sikh community leader and Interfaith Council member, Teji Singh Malik writes on Sikh religion and the recent misconception and attacks on Sikhs across the United States.

On Dec. 14, the Review-Journal printed a front-page story regarding the Interfaith Vigil for Peace, which took place at a local mosque after the attacks in San Bernardino, Calif., where many precious lives were lost for naught. The story included two pictures.  


The killers happened to be Muslims who were shot dead by the police in order to avoid more innocent bloodshed. The vigil was organized by Imam Aslam Abdullah, who, like myself, is a board member for the Interfaith Council of Southern Nevada.

Individuals from all different faiths spoke about unity and peace, including myself on behalf of the Sikh community of Las Vegas.

I am a Sikh. I wear a turban. The two pictures on the front page of the newspaper were of Sikhs who were present at the vigil. The first one showed someone holding a candle, and the second showed me speaking, which seemed strange because the story was not about the Sikhs.
