Racial Attack on Sikh: In a distressing incident, a Sikh restaurant owner in Australia, General 'Jimmy' Singh, has become the target of a racial attack, with derogatory letters urging him to 'go home' and dog excrement smeared on his car over several days. The victim, residing in Australia for 15 years, operates 'Dawat-The Invitation' restaurant in Hobart, Tasmania, and has reported a persistent campaign of harassment over the past two to three months.

Expressing the mental toll of the targeted attacks, Jimmy Singh shared his anguish, stating, "When it comes to your home and you're being targeted, especially by name, it's very stressful mentally. Something has to be done about it soon." The incidents escalated from dog excrement being smeared on his car door handle for consecutive days to receiving racist letters with the explicit directive, 'Go home, Indian.'
