Angry parents shout abuse at a 12-year-old Montréal boy as police escort him to school. This horrific, ugly scene, reminiscent of desegregation, is thanks to his school, which sent Gurbaj Singh home for three months because they discovered his kirpan (a ceremonial dagger required by the Sikh articles of faith). He won a temporary court injunction on Thursday. In the early 1990s, wing nuts protested the idea of Sikh RCMP officers being allowed to wear turbans on duty, and Royal Canadian Legion halls prevented turbaned Sikh veterans (and anyone else wearing religious headgear) from entering their premises. What is it with some of my fellow citizens and Sikhs, anyway?
