    Police say 81-year-old Piara Singh was targeted in a hate crime and nearly beaten to death outside a Sikh temple.

    Family and friends are praying for a full recovery for Piara Singh. He has staples in his head, a punctured lung and a fractured jaw. Now his family and the Sikh community want to know, why he was a target.

    Ike Grewal said, "Sad and unfortunate that somebody could do this to somebody so old, defenseless and mercilessly beat someone like this."

    Singh is a loved member of the Sikh community. Many here call him "Baba-Ji" which means grandfather in Punjabi. On Sunday morning, he was volunteering his time right before the attack.

    Singh's nephew, Charanjit Sihota said, "He is a very nice guy, he is down to earth and he just gives his services to the temple."

    Sihota spoke with us just before visiting his uncle at Community Regional Medical Center.

    "He was hit on the head and he fell and the guy kept on beating him," said Sihota.

    Fresno police say Singh was outside of the temple when Gilbert Garcia, 29, beat him with a steel pipe.

    Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said, "It does not appear that robbery was the motive. He didn't say anything during the attack and we believe that possibly it is simply a hate crime."

    Investigators say Garcia was arrested later that day. And he confessed to the beating.

    The victim's family members say they're shocked at hearing the motive behind the attack.

    Sihota explained, "He admitted, he said I did beat this man, I hate these people and I want to blow up these temples."

    Police are now working with the FBI and are investigating this as a hate crime.

    A nearby business did capture a lot of the attack on surveillance cameras.

    People from the Sikh community are afraid for their safety after the attack.

    Tuesday night, Chief Dyer and other city leaders will join people in the Sikh community for a town hall meeting to address their concerns and prevent it from happening again.

    I doubt, these bigots are not taught contrary to multicultural community claim by their Governments how to cope with cultural shocks.These people are illiterate cowards who can only attack old or vulnerable.

    This is what I am saying they know they are Sikhs, not their kind. These people lack humility,respect and tolerance for other ethnicity. Boston bombers they all know are whiter than white, look and sound like them.

    Americans better love to know what their characterless celebs ate and shit**d yesterday rather than learning something about multi-culture stuff.Anyone who actually read a bit about Sikh history(the sacrifices they gave against Islamic Extremism) would not think about attacking them.They attacked a old man aged 81 and that's extremely shameful. :tsk:

    A recent example is when Americans in Boston didn't know that the bomber was Chechen and not Czech.They got no idea about the difference between Chechen and not Czech.Due to the sudden confusion the Czech Ambassador himself had to intervene and EDUCATE Americans about Geography.

    Attacking such an old man. Garcia is a coward.
    Anyway, Garcia sounds like a Hispanic surname.

    Recently, there was an explosion in Prague (Czech Republic), in which a few people died. On one of the news agencies' (I think it was RT) comments section, I saw a comment to the effect of : "They hit us, now we hit them back."
    Can you believe that, this guy thought that Czech and Chechen are the same. :facepalm:

    Hispanics have a very high crime rate and US jails are filled with their gangs.

    These Hispanics are illegal immigrants themselves being parasite on US and dong these kind of stuff. VERY SHAMEFUL. :tsk:

    I expect USA is the most multiculture country in the world due to its made up of cultures, it dont mean an isolated incident cant happen out of 330 million people.

    Isolated incident??? Are you sure?

    There are loads of examples where Sikhs(mostly elderly) are attacked in US.

    Did you forget the recent example of the brutal attack on Sikh Temple?
