A Sikh man wears a turban.
During the past seventeen years of my life, I have observed that Sikhs have been underrepresented and underestimated. We are the fifth largest religious community in the world, and such a huge global population does not even know that we are referred to as Sikhs, or that we differ from Hindus, Muslims, and other groups from South Asia. We are from Northern India and fundamentally believe in one God and equality, regardless of caste, creed, gender, economic status, or religion.
As for the turban associated with Sikhs, itís not an attempt to make a fashion statement, nor is it a ďsilly little hatĒ. Actually, itís not a hat at all. It's called a Dastar or Pagṛi in Punjabi and Hindi, and itís a long piece of cloth that is used to tie the hair with, and, for the record, there is no room to hide knives, guns, bombs, or any other explosives in it.
