An Indian man, a Hindu, was pushed onto the tracks in front of an oncoming train – which crushed him on the spot – at Queens subway station in New York by a lady because she hates Hindus and Muslims after 2001 (9/11)!
In a statement released by the district attorney’s office, Brown quoted Menendez, “in sum and substance,” as having told the police: “I pushed a Muslim off the train tracks because I hate Hindus and Muslims ever since 2001 when they put down the twin towers I’ve been beating them up.” Menendez conflated the Muslim and Hindu faiths both in her comments to the police and in her target for attack, officials said.

One, she is demented if she doesn’t understand the difference between a Hindu and a Muslim. Second, from her statement it seems that she has been doing such things a lot. To what degree and to what extent is not clear.
Sunando Sen, was 46 and had recently started a small copying business from his savings in the Upper West Side.
This incident raises a lot of questions for Hindus of all sects and congregations. How are we portrayed in the Western media and the minds of people? I am not saying that the Muslims should be discriminated against. But Hindus – and Sikhs – surely need to come together and discuss how Hindus and Sikhs are different from Muslims. All the crimes of terror, which were religiously motivated – outside of the hate crimes and those of psychological type, like the Sandy Hook shootings – were perpetrated by the Muslims of foreign origin. There is a problem in some of the communities – specially the Pakistani and Bangladeshi congregations, that they need to fix and work on. But their failure to reign in and even properly educate their kids in globally useful behavior shouldn’t become a death knell for the other communities.
So many Sikhs have died mistaken to be Muslims. Why should they suffer for Muslim youth whose parents and community didn’t care when they flew off to Afghanistan for terror training as opposed to Harvard!
