In an online post, Singh's friend Simran Jeet Singh, who is a doctoral candidate in religion at Columbia, said he had been "brutally attacked" and had been rushed to the hospital "bloody and bruised, his face swollen from a fractured jaw."
The young professor could not speak because many of his teeth had been displaced, Jeet Singh said in the post 'Hate hits home: when my friend became a target' published on the HuffPost website.
Prabhjot Singh is currently the Director of Systems Management at the Earth Institute, and "draws upon his experiences abroad to help improve the health of local communities like Harlem," Jeet Singh said.
Prabhjot Singh is also a resident physician at a leading New York hospital. "Unfortunately his assailants did not see Prabhjot Singh, the professor, the community health expert or the local doctor. They saw a man wearing a beard and a turban — his articles of faith — and saw a target. Sadly, for many other Sikh-Americans like Prabhjot, this is a story they have heard and experienced before," Jeet Singh said.
