Sikhs in the UK are being targeted due to mistaken identity. The Sikhs say the people mistake them for Muslims and target them due to the turban and beard.
Sikhs are targeted in the UK despite having an overwhelmingly Sikh population and immensely party of the economic fabric of the country.
The primary reason for the target is to the growing problem of Islamophobia in the UK which is causing minority communities to be targeted.
Sikhs are seeking protection from the UK government after increasing attacks related to mistaken identity are coming into the media.
Truth of the matter is that Sikhs haven’t done enough in the UK to spread awareness about their religion and become targets.
