European courts of human rights ruling against muslim headscrafs could impact against Sikh turbans

8 posts in this topic

The recent ruling on employers/businesses in the EU being allowed to ban overt religious/political signs/symbols like headscarfs will probably have an impact on Sikh turbans as a company can claim they want workplace with no religious clothing showing to create a neutral one size fits all policy.

It would obviously have a negative impact on already discriminated and prejudged Sikh men of south asian background/ brown skin with facial hair and on top of it them not being allowed to wear their own turbans.

Well with all Panga being done by our islamic friends and with the threat of right wing governments, the EU has to do something to keep everything together.

With the financial problems in Greece, elections in France and the Netherlands there is a real threat of countries leaving the EU.

Unfortunately, Sikhs as per usual have to face the brunt of this.

What is interesting is France did similar things 15 years ago, and Sikhs then face the brunt of this.

Wondering if this going to be the same but EU wide.

yup Islamo-fascists have give all religious minded people a bad name and made it that much harder for non-muslim people who are religiously inclined to have a fair crack of the whip in terms of jobs and equal human rights.

The two biggest oppressors of humanity and in western society in present times are evil vile islamo-fascists who want to impose own their way on everyone and the equally evil vile atheist fascists who want to try to do the same thing.

Good thing the ruling can be enforced at the discretion of the employer. A sensible boss will value good workers who wear the dastaar. I work in a blue collar place with all sorts, and i genuinely can't see my boss ridding the place of more than half his workers, lol, i hope! I need to eat!

It is strange to see the hardcore pro-EU Sikhs fall silent at this ruling. The cognitive dissonance this issue has caused is perhaps proving to be too much at the moment. The career politicians in Brussels are no more egalitarian and enlightened than the ones in Westminster. Ultimately it's all self interest and - here comes the word - populism.

Here's the biggest problem for actual business owners and that is asking Sikhs to remove Dastars is not a smart idea for work-purposes because no offense Goras and Khalas aren't exactly as hard-working as immigrant groups, personally, I feel that is why even illegal immigrants in America will stay because Goras aren't going to be interested in being janitors and second-rate folks like Hispanics are.

    • bro , I did say sorry if you got offended , it was a misunderstanding on my part because you were talking about something That was not on the page but if you think calling names is warranted be happy .
    • You are not going to apologize for your insulting comment.  I thought you wouldn't.  Do you remember your past and what you have done?  Let's say a women of such a character came along, would we call her a Gundhi, luchi janani?
    •   1.  You are complaining that amritdharis/religious sikhs are failing to do what is necessary to create a "robust fauj."  Let me ask you something: in the 1980s, who stepped up and put their lives on the line?  It was 90% amritdharis and/or religious, keshadhari singhs.  They bled, gave up their lives, had their families subjected to all kinds of atrocities.  How much can these people take?   2.  Your critique is based on the assumption of what a "robust fauj" is.  The world has changed.  The Sikh nation is not going to liberated by a few unorganized, rag-tag gangs of 20 year old boys in the Punjab countryside.  The Sikh nation is also not going to be liberated by vigilante groups of mundey in Canada or the UK.  What we need, what we have been sorely lacking for our entire existence, is a strong group of educated, intelligent, and passionate Sikhs who can formulate nuanced, viable strategies for the quam to meet its challenges, and who have the intelligence, resources, and networks to implement such strategies.  With that in mind, I see nothing wrong in amritdhari/religious kids being groomed for success in academics and the professional world.  Look at Jews.  They are smaller in population than we are, but they are generally very well educated and successful, and, on top of that, help each other out.  They wield a tremendous amount of influence and power because they have positioned themselves in such a way.  That's the way for us to get ahead and protect our interests in the modern world.
    • bro , honestly if we are talking about one link and source , then introducing facts about something different should be clarified  so that misunderstanding doesn't happen . Sorry if you got offended but given what was given I could not see what you accused her of so I did show what I was looking at to clarify what I was talking about to back up what I had said and yes she is clothed there . OP Bibi did not refer to that picture so like another person before me I just saw standard artsy output granted some was not gurmat approved (nudes etc) but not extreme like Rupi's 'art' piece on menstruation so did not expect such an accusation to occur on it .    
    • with your limited searching skills, which you are using as an excuse now.  You decided it was right to blame me as so; Where do you get the nerve to speak in this manner?  I can run a train on you right now and even make you cry.  Keep your mouth shut when you don't know anything.  Got it!!! I have the photo and so does a lot of other people of her tying a dastar with her top off.  She posted it on a social media site.
