A Sikh man wearing a turban was escorted out of a Donald Trump rally in Muscatine High School, Iowa. This, after the man interrupted Trump’s speech by displaying a banner that read ‘Stop Hate’.

Trump, who is currently the GOP front-runner, then pointed to the crowd, referring to the protester and another person accompanying him saying:

“He wasn’t wearing one of those hats was he? And he never will, and that’s OK because we got to do something folks because it’s not working.”

Trump rallies have of late seen protesters calling out the GOP candidate for his controversial remarks against Muslims.

Security officials at Trump rallies now urge participants not to harm any protesters but to just shout ‘Trump! Trump! Trump!’ whenever they spot one. In this case, protesters were heard chanting “USA, USA, USA”, ABC News reports.

    Sikhs are neither Hindu nor Muslim. Trump is a chump, he's not educated enough to be leader of a tea party let alone a political party. He's a danger to society.

            Mr. Donald Trump may or may not be elected President but he is sending the strongest possible message to Muslim communities across the world; something no world leader had mustered till date. I read his speech where he want's to bar Muslim entry in to US till they 'understand what and where the problem is'. Sounded reasonable to me considering various macres even after WT Tower attack. Even Mr. Putin voiced his admiration for the man. The Sikh gentleman in US (because ordinary Americans mistake Sikhs for Muslims) made his statement. Now more Americans (because of this one media spotlight) know who Sikhs are: Thanks to him. Unfortunate some of India’s powerful media, ociated with the West are aping their comments effectively diluting Mr. Trump's message.

              Mr. Trump may ask Muslim governments to wake up and put an end to this Jihadist cult.

                Trump is fool, he don't know how he will face the world once he become President of USA. He is a bigger liar than Bush.

                  Sikhs are good people unlike Muslims . Now a days SIkhs are being targeted because people think they are uncultured muslims .

                    Instead of Sikh just imagine if a Jew was treated in the same way.

                      Friends ,what is this , all the religions born of bharatfollows the same dhramic tradition .Vedic, Buddist , sikhism ,jainism are branches of the same banyan tree , we all are combinedly termned as hindu ;please mind again and again ; hindu is not the name of a religion , it is the life style of bharat ; it is geographical term which were used by outsiders.

                        I dont understand what you are trying to say ... kya matlab hain iska ? whatever if we make differences among ourselves like this , the age old bharatiya civilization will be lost for ever.

                          Sikhs were ready to join the Marathas in the last battle of panipath but it were marathas who didnot take help . Number two- you cannot judge the w history citing a few events which have rather gone to the wrong side as the it was the same Sikh Guru who got himself executed in support of kashmiri pandits.

                              Trump needs a Crash Course in Sikh History - Shame on TRUMP - If he can't differentiate between MUSLIMS and SIKHs, then AMERICA is better off without him as the President ----- ( FYI I'm not a Sikh)
