U.S. lawmakers and advocacy groups are calling on the FBI to track hate crimes against Sikhs, Hindus and Arabs. Sikhs have become a particular target since the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks because of their distinctive turbans and beards. The FBI is expected to make a decision next week [June 5 or 6]. VOA religion reporter Jerome Socolovsky met one Sikh who was assaulted at a Washington night club.
