TOPIC: Religion or Safety First?

Religion or Safety First? 6 years 8 months ago #77

Just recently, Golfer Amritinder Singh- a Sikh was forced by security officials at Milan's Malpensa Airport to remove his turban as a security measure.
Given the present scenario, where undoubtedly safety should be given due precedence, authorities must respect an individual’s personal privacy. Security can be ensured without publicly insulting or hurting religious sentiments of anyone.

Since our Prime Minister wears a turban, I feel that it is all the more reason that India needs to take up such issues with U.S. and other countries. Why have the Indian authorities been so painfully slow in addressing the issues and concerns of the Sikh community in US?

As per the European Union rules the turbans can be 'patted down' if the metal detector beeps when you walk through. Otherwise the headgear is scanned with the aid of hand-held wands. Why was Amritinder Singh compelled to take off his turban then???

I can’t understand whether it’s a mere coincidence or actually a matter of racial profiling that the Sikhs are always in the news for some or the other reason. If this is the case, then why is it that it’s only the Sikh Community that is being targeted and victimized constantly?

Reportedly, the airport is notorious for violation of rules. In fact, there have been repeated incidences and complaints from the Sikh community.
