The Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department in Central California is calling the beating of a Sikh man and the vandalism of his truck a “heinous hate crime,” reports the Modesto Bee.
The words “go back to ur country” were scrawled in black spray paint, across the white truck. The symbol of the Celtic Cross which is described by the Anti-defamation League as a hate symbol used by White supremacists also marred the truck.
According to India.com, two men screamed “You’re not welcome here! Go back to your country!”
