The Hindu: #Indian Americans Call on FBI to Track Religious Hate Crimes in Wake of NY Subway Death

posted by Randall

SubwaySeveral Indian American civil rights groups are asking the Justice Department and FBI to start tracking religious hate crimes, reports The Hindu.

Prosecutors say Sunando Sen was pushed into an oncoming New York subway train because the attacker hated Muslims and Hindus.

“Such a violent and hateful attack on any individual, especially because of religious hatred is completely unconscionable in any society” said Suhag Shukla, executive director and legal counsel for the Washington-headquartered Hindu American Foundation (HAF).
