Surjit Malhi, the owner of Millennium Transport in Turlock, California, was posting placards by the side of the road in Keyes, California, when he was approached by two men, who threw sand in his eyes, according to local media reports. The attackers then beat him in the head and chest, and shouted “go back to your country.” Various news media reported that Malhi was beaten with a rod by two white males wearing hoodies. He was treated on-site for cuts and wounds. The attackers also spray-painted Malhi`s truck with hate graffiti. His pickup was spray painted in large black letters with the words, “Go back to ur country,” alongside a Celtic cross. The image is a well-known white supremacist symbol, according to the Anti-Defamation League, which tracks anti-Semitic and other hate crimes across the country, reported The Modesto Bee. Malhi told the news station that he believed his turban softened the blows of the attackers, who have not been identified by the Stanislaus County Sheriff`s Department, and remain at large.
