Sikhs in France want Modi to take up turban issue

AMRITSAR: Sikhs in France have urged PM Narendra Modi to take up the turban issue with French President Emmanuel Macron during his visit to the country.

"Despite a very long battle, Sikh students are not allowed to wear turban or 'patka' in schools. Sikhs can't do government jobs wearing turbans, which has come up as a major obstacle in the growth of community," said Iqbal Singh Bhatti, general secretary of Dastar Action Committee, France, while talking to TOI over phone from Paris on Saturday.
