NEW YORK – A research had revealed that many people in the west can not distinguish between Muslims and Sikhs and believe that all the people with beard and covered head are Muslims, the misunderstanding led school students of in New York to title a Sikh guy Terrorist, the title often given to Muslims, unfortunately.

A video of school students posted in Inquisitr revealed that a Sikh boy from Chattahoochee Elementary School in Duluth, Georgia as sitting in a school bus and is surrounded by other students.

While making the video, Harsukh Singh whispers into the camera and says, “The kids are being racist to me.”

Later he was addressed with a shout of “terrorist! terrorist!” by a girl sitting behind him. The boy, however, stayed calm.

The video posted by a user named ‘Nagra Nagra’ was reported by Inquisitr.

An Indian daily reported that “Singh had apparently uploaded the video initially with the description “Kids being racist to me and calling me an Afghan terrorist. Please don’t act like this towards people like me. If you don’t know, I’m not Muslim I’m Sikh.” The video has so far attracted 130,000 views.”

A viewer of the video described it as “disgusting” adding that “the young Sikh boy is being bullied with racist chants on a school bus. The Sikh bravely states that he doesn’t care what they think of him.”

As already reported in the start that many people in the west have no idea about Sikhism as a separate religion so the boy was titled as Terrorist as the kids believed he is a Muslim.
