    In what police are investigating as a hate crime, a Columbia University professor was badly beaten on a New York City street Saturday by a mob that apparently believed he was a Muslim.
    Police say Prabjot Singh, a 31-year-old Sikh, was attacked just blocks from his home by a group of more than 20 young men on bikes who called him a terrorist and shouted "Get Osama!" Singh, who was saved when passersby intervened, was left with injuries including a fractured jaw, reports the Columbia Spectator.

    Friend Simran Jeet Singh describes the attack in the Huffington Post, noting that the professor had been taking an evening walk after dropping his wife and 1-year-old at home.
    "He couldn't speak because many of his teeth had been displaced, but he waved limply to let us know that he was OK," he writes of seeing Singh at the hospital. "It's incredibly sad," Singh himself tells the New York Daily News. "It's not the neighborhood I know. I work in this community. It's just not American."
    Gawker points out that Singh himself noted in a New York Times article on anti-Sikh violence last year that the turbans and long beards of Sikh men have often marked them out as targets for discrimination both in India and overseas.
    It's not the only alleged hate crimeNYC has suffered in recent weeks, reports Newser, a USA TODAY content partner providing general news, commentary and coverage from around the Web. Its content is produced independently of USA TODAY.

    Fortunately none of the articles gave a description of the attackers.

    Oh ok. This crap happens occasionally since 911. Ignorant assholes think all Arabs wear turbans and beards and attack Indians because they think they caused 911. On 9/12 Indian car service drivers were being similarly attacked in their cars.

    think about it- if the people who did this were white- i'm willing to bet that theses guys really wanted to beat up a black guy but they know the backlash that would come

    so they beat up some "other type of brown person"

    kinda like a person on a diet who chooses non fat yogurt over a pint of ice cream

    if you live here you are expected to know the differences between your minority groups. if you decide to attack a hasedic while calling him a muslim, you've committed 2 crimes: a hate crime, and a crime of stupidity.
