    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)
