The gurudwara in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, where six worshippers were killed in a shooting spree by a white supremacist on August 5, will receive the 2012 Solidarity Award by an eminent American Muslim organisation.
The award by the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations would be presented to a gurudwara representative at the organisation's banquet and Leadership Skills Training Conference in Virginia.
"The Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, was the site of an August shooting spree by a white supremacist that left six worshipers dead. It will receive the award for friendship and solidarity with the American Muslim community," CAIR said in a media release.
The Islamic Society of Joplin, which was destroyed by a suspicious fire in August after an unsuccessful arson attempt in July that was caught on a surveillance camera, will receive the 2012 Courage Award.
"Its award is for courage in the face of adversity," CAIR said.
