I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

SGV congresswoman helps form Sikh caucus

Congresswoman Judy Chu will co-chair a new Congressional Sikh Caucus, which aims to promote education about the monotheistic religion that originated in northern India. Chu — who represents the San Gabriel Valley in the House of Representatives — will announce Wednesday the formation of the caucus along with Congressman David Valadao.

Instances of discrimination against the American Sikh community have risen since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, according to the press release. "The Associated Press reports that more than 700 such incidents took place over the last decade," it says. "The shooting at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin last year is a tragic example of why Congress must focus on these issues impacting American Sikhs."Community contributor Joe Soong spoke with members of Alhambra's Sikh community in 2010 and learned about their distinct faith. The city's Sikh community gathers at a small temple, a brick office building east of the Mervyn's parking lot, for Sunday services. They are also owners of Alhambra businesses, such as the Indian market on Main Street and the Dollar Indian Grocery store on Mission Boulevard. While discrimination toward Sikhs may be an issue throughout the United States, those to whom Soong spoke said Alhambra is a relatively safe community.
