    [​IMG]NEW DELHI: Sikh women can now drive or ride on the pillion of two-wheel autos without wearing helmets following the SC ruling that since they are exempt under law from such a regulation, they cannot be subjected to wear the protective head gear.

    This significant judgment having impact on Delhi and other states wherever Sikh women are legally bound to wear helmets otherwise heft penalty is imposed on them, is a fall out of the Chandigarh administration’s appeal against a Punjab and Haryana HC verdict in 1998.

    I read the newsclip, but this seems somewhat incomplete.

    Is the verdict something like: Sikh women wearing turbans are exempted to wear helmets while driving.

    If it is above, well and good, as helmet on top of turban doesnt go, but to me, looks like count of such women is just handful. If there is nothing on head while driving, then it is just going to add hazards.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
