Indian Sikhs urge church leader take up France's turban ban

Sikh community leaders in India have urged the Rev. Samuel Kobia, general secretary of the World Council of Churches, to support a Sikh demand for a lifting of a ban on wearing turbans in schools in France.

"Wearing a turban is an integral part of our faith and we feel hurt that the French government cannot respect our sacred custom," Gurbachan Singh, information officer of the Golden Temple at Amritsar, appealed to Kobia, who was visiting India and Sri Lanka from 19 to 23 October.
