Sikhs Have Made Fridley Home

Deadly attack in Wisconsin thrusts community into the headlines.

Sikhs Have Made Fridley Home

The , where at least seven people are dead and many wounded, has thrust into the headlines a religious community that is less well-known than some—although the north metro has been home for many Sikhs in Minnesota.

The Sikh Society of Minnesota has had a long history in Fridley. Until last year it had a home in a former McDonald's at 5831 University Ave. NE and has since sought to build a new building at 5350 Monroe St. NE, renewing a special permit as recently as January 2011 while raising funds.

If you have a connection with the local Sikh community and would be willing to comment on Fridley ties or the tragedy in Wisconsin, please contact Fridley Patch editor Chris Steller at chris.steller@patch.com or 763-218-8319, or leave a comment below.
