Sikh temple vandalized in Sterling Heights

| February 11, 2012

Several members of the congregation who attend the Sikh Society of Michigan temple in southwest Sterling Heights are sick over the fact that someone vandalized their gurdwara on Dequindre Road north of 14 Mile Road.

Sterling Heights police Lt. Luke Riley said a report was made to police Feb. 6 that vandals used black paint to spray vulgar words and threats on the front left portion of the temple. The temple is under construction.

Riley said police have no suspects but are seeking to know who spray painted the white outside brick walls of the temple sometime between Feb. 5 and 6, when construction workers and Gurnam Dhamrat came to the site.

"We are absolutely sick at what some bad people did to our temple," said Gurnam Dhamrat, secretary of the management committee of the Sikh Society of Michigan congregation. "You just shake your head in amazement because we are peace-loving people who love America, our home."
