The Rajya Sabha Wednesday condemned the incidents of forcing Sikhs to remove their turbans in the name of security, particularly in Italy.
Deputy Chairman K Rahman Khan joined the members during Zero Hour in condemning the recent incidents where disrespect has been shown to Sikhs' turbans.
The issue was raised by Shiromani Akali Dal member Naresh Gujral, who referred to the latest incident involving Jet Airways commander Ravijodh Singh at Milan airport.
"The entire House joins in condemning this incident and this should be conveyed to the government," Khan said.
Gujral said Sikhs are being publicly humiliated and the community is outraged.
