Sikhs Killed In Kenya Terror Attack


Recommended Posts



Reports are coming in that as many as 5 Sikhs were killed by the Terrorists and many more injured including Satpal Singh, quoted in our article, and Pavraj Singh’s cousin.

Sikhs from Kenya have asked for all Sikhs worldwide to do simran for the large number of fatalities in this weekends terrorist attack which is still ongoing.

NAIROBI, KENYA (September 23, 2013)—A Sikh youth named Pavraj ‘Pablo’ Singh Ghataurhae has been reported as one of the victims killed by al Qaeda linked Somalian terrorist group al-Shabab during their attack on Westgate Mall in Nairobi Kenya today.

Armed gunmen faced off with Kenyan police and soldiers inside an upscale Nairobi shopping mall early Sunday, hours after brazenly gunning down shoppers, diners and more. On Saturday afternoon, the terrorists had freed all Muslims and began killing the non-Muslims present.

Satpal Singh, 36, another Sikh who was in a cafe on the mall’s top floor, said he ran downstairs when he heard the gunfire and was shot at near the mall’s main exit.

“A Somali guy shot at me. The guy who shot me was carrying a rifle, an AK-47.”

39 people, including Pavraj Singh, women, and other children were declared dead while another 293 people were injured.

Shocked people could be seen running away from the Westgate centre clutching children, while others crawled along walls to avoid bullets. “The gunmen tried to fire at my head but missed. At least 50 people were shot. There are definitely many casualties,” mall employee Sudjar Singh said.

“I saw a young boy carried out on a shopping cart, it looked like he was about five or six. It looked like he was already dead, he was not moving or making any noise.”

Vehicles riddled with bullet holes were left abandoned in front of the mall as police instructed local residents to stay away.

We aren't warriors by any stretch of the imagination today.

So expect more of the same until we start to try to live up to our heritage.

I think there are plenty of warriors amongst us. Many of them have just adapted to other lifestyles and professions. I think activists are warriors to some extent, they certainly (need to) possess a warrior spirit but if you mean a soldier then what is there to fight against and fight for exactly?

I mean terrorist attacks are VERY rare. I think more people die from the common cold than in terrorist attacks (don't quote me on that tho). And so such occurences don't present themselves as a big enough catalyst for the warriors to come forward.
