Pilot told to take off turban at Milan airport

A Sikh senior commander with Jet Airways on Tuesday was asked to take off his turban during security check for his Flight 141 to Delhi from the Milan airport.
The incident happened just six months after the Italian government’s promise against continuation of such a practice.
After an uproar over the humiliation caused to golfer Jeev Milkha Singh’s coach Amritinder Singh, who was made to take off his turban at the same airport in March this year, Italy had announced in June that Sikhs travelling to the country will no longer have to remove their turbans at the airports during security screening.
