    Kuala Lumpur, Jan 19 (ANI): Malaysian Defence Minister Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi has reportedly ordered officials to investigate the claims made by a Sikh national service trainee that his hair was cut while he was asleep at the Sungai Bakap camp in Penang.

    Buzz up!
    The Star quoted National Service Training Department Director General, Abdul Hadi Awang Kechil, as saying that 17-year-old Basant Singh, the trainee, and his father Surinderpal Singh, lodged a report over the alleged incident with the camp commandant Mej Shamsudin Abdul Aziz last Sunday, and also lodged a police report.


    He further said that the department would send a team to conduct a two-weeks investigation into the matter.

    "But the trainee Basant could not produce any evidence to show that his hair had been cut. Checks at his sleeping place as well as the belongings of other trainees in his dormitory were futile as no hair or sharp objects were found," Abdul Hadi said.

    Basant said that the incident has left his traumatised because it violated his religious rights.

    "I was fast asleep on Sunday night. When I woke up the next day, I realised that my hair had been cut off as I was about to tie it," he said.

    Basant's hair, which originally reached below his navel, was estimated to have been cut by 50 centimetres.

    Basant has been given him leave till January 23, but he has least interest in joing back his duty. (ANI)

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!
