The Gurdwara in Wisconsin, which experienced a shooting spree by a white supremacist last month, leaving six worshipers dead, will receive the “2012 Solidarity Award” by an eminent American Muslim organization. The award by Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) would be presented to a Gurdwara representative at the organization’s banquet and Leadership Skills Training Conference on September in Virginia.
“The Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, was the site of an August shooting spree by a white supremacist that left six worshipers dead. It will receive the award for friendship and solidarity with the American Muslim community,” CAIR said in a media release. The Islamic Society of Joplin, which was destroyed by a suspicious fire in the same month, after an unsuccessful arson attempt in July that was caught on a surveillance camera would receive “2012 Courage Award.” “Its award is for courage in the face of adversity,” CAIR said.
