Sikh organization defends kirpan after man stabbed in Brampton



The World Sikh Organization of Canada is moving to dispel misconceptions about the kirpan, a small ceremonial dagger worn by Sikhs, following an incident on Friday outside the Sikh Lehar Centre in Brampton where a man was stabbed with a kirpan.



Sukhwant Singh was charged with attempted murder and aggravated assault after Manjit Mangat, 53, was punched in the face and stabbed at the centre.



In a press release Wednesday, the organization said the kirpan is neither a knife nor a weapon.



"It is neither designed nor permitted to be used in anger or as a weapon. Doing so represents a serious transgression for a Sikh and may result in penalty or sanction," the release said.



"The kirpan poses no safety risk to Canadians. The kirpan is always sheathed and secured into a fabric holster and worn across the torso."

Has anyone been "penalised" for misuse of the Kakaars - Kirpan and Karra ?? Apart from the weight of civil law which fined such miscreants..its the AKAL TAKHAT that should have taken action long ago...since already a few such incidents have already happened ??
