3 students punished for wearing turbans

Express News Service

Mohali, April 29 After France, it is now Mohali banning students from wearing turbans in schools. Three students of Class X of Lawrence Public School were today asked to leave their classrooms by the school authorities for wearing turbans and were made to sit in a separate room as punishment.
Principal Veena Malhotra said they had flouted the rules of the school which reads ‘the students upto class X should wear patka but she failed to produce any such rule written in the school diary.

The Shiromani Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee, however, demanded action against the school.

Inderjeet Singh, Gursewak Singh and Ravinder Singh, all class X students, had come to school wearing turbans. About 9.30 am, the school principal visited the class and asked these three students to get up and come out. “She asked us not to wear turbans in the school, claiming that it doesn’t look nice,” claimed Gursewak Singh.

They were asked to take their school bags out of the class and were directed not to attend any class for the whole day as punishment. The authorities said that they will impose a fine of Rs 50 per day if they wear turbans in the school, one of the students said.

Principal Veena Malhotra said their dress code does not allow turbans and it is mandatory for students of upto Class X.

“We have prescribed patka for Sikh students and they should abide by the rules of the school. We asked them to sit in a separate room just because they flouted the norms. We will not let them attend classes if they wear turbans again,” she added.

But she failed to produce any such rule existing in the rulebook and any such norm ever being communicated to the students.

The SGPC has demanded action against the school. Hardeep Singh, member of SGPC from Mohali, said they will protest against the disrepute brought to the Sikh religion by the school authorities and will take up the matter with the SGPC.

“Turban is a part of Sikhism and nobody can deter Sikh students from wearing them,” he added.


The Principles address in case anyone wants to send an 'informative' (NOT threatening or abusive) message.

This principle seems to be a ignorant fool. Either she is a communist minded person OR she is a friend of kanta Chavla.

In my view religion teaches u the way to live. NO ONE CAN SURVIVE WITHOUT HAVING RELIGION . religion is the way that god had gifted u depending upon ur karams If ur a sikh its ur last janam bhakti that has given u this fringe benefit.

In france Govt and some people who think tht by banning religious symbols they are doing anything good they are completely mistaken. religion helps to grow spiritually and mentally . People who have no religion had no fear for god and one who dont remember god is utmost fool.

sikhs are so rich. why the hell dont we have top notch sikh schools. why do we want these christian schools.
In this world, people sell to money. Open up a sikh school and BUY teachers from these convent schools to teach english, french etc.
ITS ALL ABOUT MONEY.
