Turban, a matter of pride and honour

Turbans are a matter of pride and honour for the Sikhs. Sikhs all over the world wear turbans as articles of faith and there is no major city in the world where you will not spot a turban in a crowd.

However, in France, Sikh school children are not allowed to wear a turban and attend school. They are being discriminated against.

The President of France will be the Chief Guest at the Republic Day festivities. This is an occasion to remind him and the world of this injustice that turban-wearing Sikh children have to face in the Republic of France.
