Fatehgarh Sahib: In a statement issued today, Shiromani Akali Dal Amritsar (Mann) president S. Simranjeet Singh Mann said that the Narendra Modi led Indian government has failed to raise the issue of ban on Sikh turban in France.
S. Mann said that the turban (Dastar) symbolises the pride of the Sikh nation and when ever any foreign government imposes ban on Sikh turban, it hurts Sikhs globally. He said that successive governments in India, led by Congress or the Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP), have failed to represent Sikh concerns while dealing with foreign governments.
SAD Mann chief said that Indian PM Narendra Modi should have raised turban issue with the French government before finalising Rafale fighter jet deal with the France. He said that Modi government should sincerely raise the turban issue with the French government and India should cancel Rafale fighter jet deal with France if the French government fails to life the concerned ban. He also criticised the Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal), an ally of BJP, for failing to press BJP in this regard.
