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

Recommended Posts

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 suspect three faith who have a common creation story would have been a pointless exercise ...
    • Nice to see such great scholars we have...or should I say internet Gianni It was Sant Gurbachan Singh of Binderkala who FIRST said this about the Sahibzade and is available in his mp3 CDs I don't see why Ultra kattar illiterate tunnel vision Sikhs cannot see the relationship between devteh and Sikhism perhaps if you listened to all the CDS you would have some foundation knowledge such as Nanaksar Sarovar helped built by Devteh and Baoli Sahib Well connects to Ganges etc etc there are many proofs of this such as Bhagat being previously devteh BTW ALOT OF MODERN KATHA AND SAMPARDAI KATHA IS TAKEN FROM THE SANT GURBACHAN SINGH CDS
    • The UK is largely a post Christian society. The institution of religion has been broken down over the past few decades for the British whites.  How would you suggest that Gurdwaras adapt. Are Sangat attendances down? Gurudware are packed over the weekends (though this could be due to the akhand paths, sukhmani paths and Anand Karajs taking place)and with the numerous Gurpurabs, Band Chor Divas and Vaisakhi.   If you go to the Gurdwarae during the weekday, you'd be surprised how much Sangat there is at different times of the day. Our congregation operates very differently to the Judeo Christian one.
    • took me a while but I found the book and the passage.      Just remember that within Kaal Purkh (the lord) there are millions upon millions of Vishnus, Shivas, Brahmas, Indras and so on.
    • How can it cause further hatred?  In the several thousand mosques in the UK, there are thousands of speeches that denigrate the kafir way of live. Is that not denigrating? Does that not reinforce bad feelings towards the kafir in dar-ul-harb? Jews are called monkeys and pigs, yet does that not cause/re-in force against jews? If muslims do bad things disproportionately to the size of their population,  do we not have the right to call out the bad things? I do not think Sikhs will hate any further. All that I can see Sikhs is saying a collective "I told you so!" to the mainstream community.
