Bangalore: Indian Americans have asked the department of justice and FBI to keep a track on the hate crimes against religious minorities in America, following the recent death of Sunande Sen, an Indian immigrant. Sen was pushed by a woman in front of an oncoming subway train in New York, previous week.
"Such a violent and hateful attack on any individual, especially because of religious hatred is completely unconscionable in any society" said Suhag Shukla, executive director and legal counsel for the Washington headquartered Hindu American Foundation (HAF), reports PTI.

"We need the department of justice (DOJ) to have a separate Hindu category to track anti Hindu hate crimes and urge Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to implement to raise the profile," Hindu American Seva Communities (HASC) said.

Erika Menendez, a 31-year-old lady who is behind the murder of Sen has been arrested by police. As per recent reports, Menendez targeted Sen out of hatred for Hindus and Muslims.

"Though there is high acceptance of our community in America, sometimes we see gaps through intolerance and violence. Unfortunately, innocent people are impacted when individuals turn against any group of people," HASC said.
