Metro Detroit Sikhs say they have cause for concern today as they, too, reflect on the tragedy of 9/11.

Sikhs, who wear turbans as part of their religion, say they are frequently assumed to be Muslims, Arabs or religious extremists. Some Sikhs say since September 11, they have experienced more negative comments and discrimination.
