In a May 23, 2011 photo, Sukhwinder Singh sits next to the memorial for his father, Balbir Singh Sodhi, in Mesa, Arizona. Singh's father was shot and killed in front of the family owned gas station as he was placing flowers at a makeshift memorial the family set up shortly after the 9/11 attacks in 2001. The Sikh was killed during the anti-muslim backlash after the 9/11 attacks. Some have objected to including Balbair Singh Sodhi's name on a Phoenix Sept. 11 memorial, saying he was not a victim of the attacks, but his family takes issue with that statement. Rivaling stories on Phoenix's Sept. 11 memorial touched off a bitter, years-long struggle in Arizona over how Sept. 11 should be publicly remembered. (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin)
