Vic­tory for this boy’s re­li­gious rights

The Week - Junior - - Around The World -

On 12 Au­gust, a tri­bunal (a bit like a court that re­solves dis­putes) found that a five-year-old boy had been treated un­fairly be­cause of his re­li­gion. Sid­hak Singh is a Sikh. He wears a patka, a bit like a tur­ban, as part of his re­li­gion. He was told that he couldn’t go to school be­cause his patka was against the rules, but the tri­bunal said this was un­rea­son­able.
