"Mr. Singh was attacked because of his Sikh religious appearance and the color of his skin, and hate crime laws were enacted to address exactly this particular type of crime," Gurjot Kaur, senior staff attorney of The Sikh Coalition, told NBC News. "We are calling for a hate crime investigation and prosecution not to further penalize the offender, but to address the problem of bigotry. Our hate crime laws won't work if the police don't enforce them."
