    After turban issue in France, kirpan controversy rocks Chandigarh

    http://www.hindustantimes.com/news/5983_1080346,00430005.htm

    Even as the French turban issue involving Sikhs refuses to settle down, another
    religious symbol of the community is in the eye of a storm - this time back home
    in India.

    The kirpan, a three-foot-long sword kept by baptised Sikhs at all times as part
    of their religious attire, has raked up a controversy.

    One of the five high priests of the Sikhs - jathedar (head) of Damdama Sahib
    Sikh temple Balwant Singh Nandgarh - last week refused to enter the US Embassy
    in New Delhi after he was asked to deposit his kirpan.
