    Man's turban stolen in Southampton race attack

    A Sikh man was racially abused and had his turban stolen as he stood at a bus stop in Southampton.

    The 29-year-old man was approached by a group of five drunken men outside the Civic Centre on Tuesday evening.

    Police said the group shouted and swore at passers-by before racially abusing the Sikh man as they walked past.

    The man turned away to ignore them but one of them pulled his turban off his head before running away with it towards the train station.

    The turban is described as white with black markings.

    All the men are described as white. One was wearing a checked shirt and the others T-shirts.

    It is believed there were several other people at the bus stop at the time who saw the incident.

    Hmm I think it is better to wear Dumalla in such case. A dumalla won't come off so easily. It can only be taken off turn by turn.

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!
