Greece: Two Sikh Gurdwaras- Gurdwara Sri Dasmesh Singh Sabha and Bhagat Ravidas Darbar in Marathon, were attacked by gunfire in Greece. The attack reportedly took place on Sept. 21.


As per Sikh Channel UK report there were no casualties, however the Gurdwara buildings faced some damage.

“Tony” Singh, while speaking with Sikh Channel UK stated that such attacks are common in Greece.

He said that the Punjabi community is not organized and most are labour workers.

“Though such attacks are common, since many Sikhs work in farms, they are not able to seek our help on the growing problem,” he added.

Sikhs in Greece have stated that these are racially motivated crimes. Sikhs are being targeted in hate crimes nationwide as right-wing and neo-nazi parties grab a foothold around the country since the economic downturn in Greece.
