    CHANDIGARH: In a move that is bound to raise Sikh hackles, the turban, one of Sikhism's five articles of faith, has come under a scanner in the US. The Sikh pug has been put on the list of items to be frisked at airports across the US as security agencies believe it could hide explosive devices.

    Interesting Stiff from the news now!!


    The turban, as well as cowboy hats and baseball hats, were specifically referred to in the revised procedures. The Jewish yarmulke, on the other hand, remains unaffected by the new procedures.

    You can always expect that happening in US ( special status to jews)

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!
