FILE - TO GO WITH 11SEP SIJS - This May 19, 2011 file photo shows Kamaljit Atwal clutches a photo of his slain father, Gurmej Atwal, in his home in Elk Grove, Calif. Gurmej Atwal, 78, and Surinder Singh, 67, where shot in March while taking their daily walk through the neighborhood. Singh died at the scene and Atwal passed away six-weeks after the shooting in what authorities are investigating as a hate crime. Since Sept. 11, 2001, Sikhs across the U.S. have reported a rise in harassment , assaults and even murders, all because they have been mistaken for Muslim terrorists.
