Sikh man assaulted in Chicago

Hate crime is on the rise in the USA.
Inderjit Singh Mukker, a father of two on his way to the grocery store in his Chicago suburb, pulled over when the vehicle behind kept tailgating him, according to the Sikh Coalition. The 53-year-old Sikh man, who wears a beard and turban, expected that the person in the other car would just drive past. “Terrorist!” “Bin Laden!” “Go back to your country!” came the shouts from the other car.
The other driver got out and stormed toward Mukker’s car and repeatedly punched him in the face. 
Mukker lost consciousness and had to be taken to the hospital, where he received treatment for a fractured cheekbone, bruising and blood loss and six stitches for the lacerations on his face.
Police in Darien, Ill., 30 miles southwest of downtown Chicago, said that the incident Tuesday night is being investigated as a hate crime, according to NBC. The alleged assailant is in police custody.
