Members of the Sikh community in Richfield are concerned and are taking steps forward to protect a local temple after they learned about the shooting tragedy that struck Wisconsin over the weekend.
Dr. Surjit Singh Dhillon, a member of the Guru Nanak Foundation in Richfield, says it's a disappointment to see a lack of cultural or religious awareness in America.
"That's my concern. My children and our children are suffering because of the ignorance of people," Dhillon said.
Dhillon says, although members of the Sikh community feel safe in Richfield, they are planning to add security cameras around the area. He says members of the Sikh community are coming together at the temple to pray for the victims who lost their lives in the shooting.
"We are trying our best (to move forward). We are very devastated," Dhillon said.
Richfield Police Chief Keith Morgan says the department is not adding extra patrols around the temple, but they are reaching out to community members to offer assistance if needed.
"We are going to reach out to all of our religious organizations in the community to make sure there are no concerns, questions or anything we can do to make them feel more secure," Morgan said.
Morgan says the Richfield Police Department has never problems with attacks made against the Sikh community.
Dhillon says members of the Sikh community in Richfield are coming together at the temple to pray for the victims who lost their lives in the shooting.
