“I am not sure what he meant when he used the word “hat”. But if he thought I was a Muslim, I would not have a problem with that because we all have to stand with the Muslims and reject the hate that is being directed towards them. How can anybody stand up and say Muslims should be banned from this country?”
‘Those people who cannot tell the difference between a Muslim and a Sikh should be embarrassed of themselves. But I stand with the Muslims and I will always do what I can to stop the hating.”Here is what happened: Even as the news about Singh being escorted out of Iowa’s rally, and Trump’s response to his protest spread like wildfire, people on Twitter made it into a debate.
Trump hasn’t denigrated Sikhs, yet we speak against him anyway. Why? Because our tradition is to stand against injustice, in all its forms.— Simran Jeet Singh (@SikhProf) January 24, 2016

Donald #Trump is the definition of ignorant. Mocking a Sikh man for wearing a #turban? Disgusting. — Avi (@aviks_) January 26, 2016
Personally feel that Donald Trump’s comment on the Sikh protester wasn’t aimed at insulting Sikh community. — Rohit KV (@RohitBJP) January 25, 2016
