Sikh can't wear turban to work, says Irish court

LONDON: An Irish high court has dismissed a Sikh man's appeal to be allowed to wear a turban while on duty for the Garda Reserve, a volunteer group formed to assist Ireland's police force.
Judge Kevin Feeney dismissed Ravinder Singh Oberoi's appeal on Thursday under the country's Equality Act. Oberoi has completed all three stages of his training, but was told he has to take off his turban as it does not comply with the full Garda uniform.
