Big Deal, Check His Shoes As Well!

Sikh With Turban, Sikh With Baseball Cap

Jeev Milkha Singh, India's top golfer was born in Chandigarh, India, in a Sikh Rajput[1] family to Indian Olympic athlete Milkha Singh and Nirmal Kaur, former captain of the Indian women's volleyball team.[2] He lives in Chandigarh. According to good old wikipedia, anyway.

So, he's a Sikh - as is his golfing coach, Amritinder Singh.

So what the fucking hell is all the fuss about asking Amritinder Singh to take his turban off as part of a security check at Milano airport?

Because it is clear from the photograph that not wearing a fucking turban isn't a fucking issue.

Just curious, before fragrant Felicity starts banging the racism drum!

It is the same with motorbike crash helmets. Never worn a turban in their fucking LIFE, yet, because they are a "Sikh" they get away with no helmet.

Just curious, before fragrant Felicity starts banging the racism drum! XX

Don't have a clue who that is, but YES,! and fucking PROUD to be! would be my answer.

And it is things like your Sikh story, and the crash helmets, i.e "you follow the laws, and I will do what I want, or I will scream and shout "descrimination!" that have MADE me so.

here will be blood. Every one of the racist Italian Police will lose their jobs , India has threatened a trade war , which quite simply will bring the Italians on their knees , just ask Jacques Chirac who begged Manmohan singh for mercy over Mittal, compensation will given , formal apologies made by the Italian dipolmats and Golf association , they are in Delhi right now. You want to go to war with the 3rd largest army in the world fully backed by the USA , India has nuclear weapons to test and experiment with , ready to blow.C'mon , its a new world , the rise of east with a hell of a lot of bombs ready for any racists. May the Italians beg for mercy.
