Sikh student ask not to wear turban - DOTO

Sikh student ask not to wear turban

The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) has taken a strong note of a school in Uttar Pradesh allegedly asking Sikh students not to wear a turban or carry 'kirpan'. They alleged that children were told to quit the school on failing to follow the order. Bareilly district Magistrate Shivakant Dwivedi had Thursday said both parties were called and heard. The school management said there has been some misunderstanding and apologised for it, he had said, adding the issue has been resolved. “I appeal to Sikhs living across the country to come together and organise to firmly raise voice against people who are doing discrimination against Sikhs and urge the administration at the local level to take action,” SGPC president Harjinder Singh Dhami said in a statement. He said "such discriminations are being done deliberately with the Sikhs, while the role of governments is also not transparent”.
