Suspicious Man Detained and Released at Wisconsin Gurdwara

A strange white man with wires sticking out of his backpack, who was detained after he sipped tea in the lungar hall of the Wisconsin gurdwara where six people were shot and killed in August, is still welcome there. Police had told him not to return to the gurdwara, as per their request. But its president, Kulwant Singh Dhaliwal, said he was not aware of that. “The gurdwara is open to everyone.” The man told police that God told him to travel around the country and visit sights where tragedies occurred. He was released the same day.
