European Dastar Harrassment -- Cases, Awareness & Next Steps

European Dastar Harrassment — Cases, Awareness & Next Steps

In this exclusive show Sangat TV expresses concerns of the Sikh Community regarding harassments of the Dastar (Sikh Turban) of the Sikhs when travelling to European countries. Sangat TV would ensure wider participations of the Community so that such Harassments do not take place in future.

The show was hosted by Sukwinder Singh and Kamalpreet Kaur and the key guests were Scientist, Shaminder Singh Puri, who shares difficulties that he has personally experienced at Polish airports and how he has tackled these issues and Shaminder Singh Marway, President of Ramgarhia Sabha, Southall. Local Sikhs from the audience also had a chance to ask questions to the panel.

Sikhs are concerned that some European countries are violating the basic human rights by profiling Sikhs with Dastars and harassing them unnecessarily without any justification whatsoever.

Academy of Punjabi Heritage wishes to involve a wide range of Sikh Organisations and media groups to rally and lobby individual countries and the EU Bodies to empower them with the knowledge and understanding that the DASTAR is the crown of a Sikh and as such needs to be respected at all costs.
