For fucks sake he was a Sikh.  Please disregard what it says in the link and just take a look and prepare for some rage.

Sikh family got a note saying that someone had been watching them, concluded they were working with the Taliban, and asking them to leave the country ASAP for be shot.

Frankly, I'd be more likely to chalk this up to dickhole teenagers than any other group. Paranoid and bigoted but ultimately relatively reasonable adults would have just called the authorities, a real nutbar would have have just attacked their house, but asshole teenagers would totally print up an internet toughguy letter like that.

Problem is that there are plenty of adults out there who never grew out of their teenage mentality. As such, I would not be shocked if it was an adult or adults who sent this message.

When I saw the end of the url I had to wonder what the hell this was, then I realized it was the poster's name.
History is full of maniacs, my friend, men and women of intelect, highly perceptive individuals, who's brilliant minds know neither restraint nor taboo. Such notions are the devils we must slay for the edification of pony-kind. Even if said edification means violating the rules of decency, society, and rightousness itself.

I dunno, like the poster above said, it sounds more like an asshole prank from teenagers than Islamophobia.
Kinda like how some people nazi salute Jews or harass them with holocost phrases, to get a rise out of'em.

Oh, it's both Islamaphobic and pretty racist (all brown people are obviously the same, right?) but it just comes off as such in a "Teenagers are such assholes" rather than a "There's seriously a group of neighbors pricing out Templar gear on eBay right now, you may want to run for your life" way.

Which isn't to say that it isn't criminal, terrible, or potentially dangerous, just that it is less dangerous.

Print black on white. Some of us have eyes with a lot of mileage on them.

The letter reads:

Quote
Mr.,

Our people in the neighborhood have been closely watching your activities and figured out you are a close associate of a secret Taliban movement on the US soil.

We ask you to leave this country as soon as possible otherwise one of our people is going to shoot you dead. Don't attempt to relocate somewhere else in America as people are closely monitoring your day to day activities.
