Muslim wounded at Sikh festival

A 16-year-old Muslim boy was wounded at a religious festival by a Sikh wielding a ceremonial sword.

West Midlands Police are treating Sunday's incident at the Vaisakhi Mela in Walsall as racially aggravated.

Faisal Mehmood says he was hit with a sword before it was unsheathed and his arm was slashed.

Two Sikh pupils have since been attacked at a college in the town in what the head teacher believes was an act of reprisal.

Disrespect claim

One of the students at Joseph Leckie Community Technology College was struck with a metal bar by a gang of youths on Monday.

Police say they think the earlier incident at the festival, which was held at the Walsall Arboretum, was racially aggravated.

They are also investigating claims that a small group of Muslim youths caused trouble at the event by showing disrespect to the Sikh religion.

The Vaisakhi Mela is a celebration of the Sikh religion, and Sunday's gathering was billed as a community event that was open to all.

Faisal Mehmood told BBC Midlands Today he was set upon by a group of attackers.

"Some men grabbed my hooded top and started hitting me on the back with the samurai.

"It was in its case but then someone took the case off and slashed my arm.

"By that time the police had

come around and the Sikhs ran off."

Swords and spears

Faisal's father Khalid Mehmood said: "The police were there and I confronted them and I said: 'Why did you let it happen?

"Why do you let people carry swords and spears in a family outing like this?'"

Harvinder Singh, a police officer who was off duty at the event as one of the organisers, said: "The Sikh Forum condemns this sort of behaviour and I think as a community we should rally together and find out exactly what happened."

Representatives of the Sikh and Muslim communities are due to meet on Thursday to discuss Sunday's events.

I really dont care wat happens in fights over there. But it happened wat I was scared of. That some <banned word filter activated>'s gona pull his Kirpan out and misuse it ..just like this guy did and We all will have to pay for it one day by loosing our kirpan privilege. I can't believe these idiots actually do that. I bet that <banned word filter activated> who pulled out a kirpan is probabaly not even Amritdhari. they were just carrying it around just to show off on a MELA!!! IDIOTS!!!!

Every amritdharee knows that you are only and only supposed to use the kirpan as a last resort for self defense and this guy pulled out the kirpan because they were disrespecting Sikhism? wat happened to fists? yeh that muslim guy had a pistol that our so called " SIKH" had to defend himself. :umm: @

hey if that musalmaan disrespected sikhi or our Gurus then......yeah you get my drift...i know how some of these punks are, they show up at these Vaisakhi parades with their homeboys and mock the turban and kes and Sikhs gurus and think they are gonna get away with it because sikhs just use swords as ceremonial things, but these people do not know that sikhs live by the sword....
