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.

    • I saw this on Instagram this morning. Makes me feel so sick how he says everything like he's a true gangster. Won't be long till we give a response but I guess hundreds of apne have exploded his DM's with disses.
    • Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa
      Vaheguru ji Ki Fateh, ji 1stly, I see a clear difference between amritdharis and hindus because our guru sahib jis have denied certain hindu practices (and if it ever felt like I have said there is no difference in the past then I am sorry for my mistake). 2ndly I agree with sikhs not wearing hindu threads. What I was saying in my post was that I have no objection with strangers in real life because who am I to advise a stranger since I don't know anything about them. Hindu threads are not gurmat.. practices that our guru sahib jis have not taken part of is not seen as part of sikhi to me. Sorry for the misunderstanding Singh ji.. There are a lot of things I've changed my mind on due to the cycle of learning. Another reason why I choose to not advise people to practice anything other than patth.  bhull chuk maaf kijye Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru ji Ki Fateh
    • Bit of a leap your making my friend by implicitly saying all Hindus see shiva as a devta as 'god' Hindu philosophy has many congruent philosophical threads as sikhi. One of which is that there are many avatars or more accurately characteristics of Ongkaar. The term Vahiguroo is used in the Bhagat bani and to reduce it to a definable 'object'  is no different than idolatry ..  The dominant practices  of Hinduism as well as Islam is what was criticised and rejected.. Guru Nanak Dev Ji taught us to transcend narrow ideas, the foolishness in creating and trying to own the truth.. 
    • By saying the above she is trying to obscure the clear difference between Sikhs and Hindus.  If a person wants to worship the Gurus then worship the Gurus as they taught.  Instead these Hindus are worshipping in their manmat way.  Saying Vaheguru before an idol as a form of worship is no different for when Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji tells Hindus not to worship idols by saying a devi or devta name.  Vaheguru description and form of worship is given in Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji.  If Hindus want to worship by saying Vaheguru then follow Gurbani instructions.  Gurbani uses the name shiva to describe an attribute of Vaheguru.  But Hindus are worshipping Shiva the devta who came down went against Vaheguru Hukam and died.  By saying vaheguru before a shivling the Hindus are calling shiva thee Vaheguru.  They are being clever by taking gullible people to worship a shivling of Shiva.   Sikhs do not wear Hindu threads.  These threads have some sort of manmat behind them.  This poster does not clearly say she objects to Sikhs wearing these threads because she thinks according to Gurmat wearing a thread is right.  Now in this topic she is going on about how she does not tell others what to do.  She is a bold face liar because anyone can see her objections to Sikhs eating meat on a different topic.  Also she is trying to give merit to wearing threads by saying a lot of people do it.  Again another Hindu fable to get others to follow them to reincarnation.  Sikhs will always have a problem with the Hindu thread because it creates some to be more deserving of Gods worship because they were born in a certain family than another who was born to a so called lower family lineage.  Some threads are worn to keep away evil spirits which is also against the Sikhs teaching.
