UP Sikh boy told not to wear turban to school


UP Sikh boy told not to wear turban to school

Bijnore (UP), November 27

The Sikh community is up in arms against a private school here that objected to a Class X Sikh student wearing a turban.

The Gurdwara Parbandhak Samiti has lodged a complaint with district officials.

According to reports, the student named Navjot was asked by the principal of St Mary’s school in Najibabad to not wear a turban to school.

Navjot had been regularly attending the school with his turban, but two days ago he was asked not to wear turban to the school.

Balbir Singh, head of the Shri Guru Singh Sabha, said the community had lodged a complaint with the sub-divisional magistrate. Copies of the complaint have been sent to the SGPC, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah.

“The turban is a part of our identity and our dignity and we cannot stop wearing it. We tried to meet the principal, but were not given an appointment. The boy’s parents met the principal who said the student won’t be allowed in if he continues to wear the turban,” said Balbir Singh. — IANS
