Amritsar, Punjab: Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh has welcomed the decision of Belgium Supreme Court’s allowing a Sikh student to wear turban in School.
Giani Gurbachan Singh said that the world need to be made aware about the fact that Dastar (Turban) was integral part of Sikh identity.
It is notable that the Belgian Conseil d’Etat has upheld the freedom of religion of Sikh students by overturning the ban on the Sikh Turban in a GO school, which is part of a large group of schools attended by many Sikh students in the Flemish part of Belgium.
In a landmark decision dated 14th Oct. 2014, which was communicated to us yesterday, the Highest Administrative Court has held that GO has the obligation to organise its education without harming the respect for diversity and plurality.
