A 14-year-old Sikh boy was punched and knocked down by his classmate in the Washington State with his father claiming that his son was targeted because he is of Indian descent. The boy wearing a traditional Sikh turban was beaten less than a block outside of the city`s Kentridge High School. The assault happened recently and has since drawn outrage from the boy`s family. The boy was attacked by the classmate as someone recorded it and posted it on Snapchat. In the clip, the classmate follows behind the victim and suddenly punches him, knocking him to the ground. The victim is punched several more times as he tries to protect his head and crawl away. However, the school district says it was not rooted in hate, but spawned hate speech online. The victim`s father, who declined to be identified, told KIRO-TV he fears his son was targeted because he is of Indian descent and is a Sikh.Kent School District claims to be one of the most diverse in the country, with more than 27,000 students who speak 150 languages. The case is the latest in a series of troubling incidents of apparent hate crimes, where members of the Indian community have been targeted.
