Sikh Removes Turban To Help Injured Child, Shows True Meaning Of The Religion

A New Zealand Sikh man is being hailed a hero after removing his turban to help a child who had been hit by a car.

Harman Singh did not think twice about removing his turban to cradle the bleeding head of a 5-year-old who had just been hit by a vehicle on his way to school.

Quote:
Harman Singh heard screeching wheels near his home in Auckland and ran outside to find that Daejon Pahia had been hit by a car, according to The New Zealand Herald.

"I saw a child down on the ground and a lady was holding him. His head was bleeding, so I unveiled my turban and put it under his head," the 22-year-old said. "I wasn't thinking about the turban. I was thinking about the accident and I just thought, 'He needs something on his head because he's bleeding.' That's my job -- to help. And I think anyone else would have done the same as me."

The turban is an integral part of Sikhism and is worn by many Sikhs as a symbol of love and dedication to the faith, the Sikh Coalition notes. Sikhs tie their turbans each day as a commitment to the religion. Those who choose to wear turbans do not remove them in public.

Singh's actions have been applauded as representative of what Sikhism stands for.

"It's a very practical religion," Devpaal Singh, advisory board member at Multicultural NSW, told The Sydney Morning Herald. "The way I see it, religion doesn't really have a place if it's not for helping people."

It's not forbidden to use it to help others.

Quote:
There is much importance given to the turban or Dastar in Sikhism. I like to think of it as a crown. As a king/queen its yours to wear and keep, and provides you with a strong identity to the world around you. You don't let anyone else touch it or remove it from your head without your permission. However, in the case of an emergency, and sticking to the what Sikhism teaches, using it of your own will to come of the aid of someone is definitely permitted.
I find this article quite useless, because one who wouldn't help in such a case would be a douchebag, and religion is so unimportant when it comes to serious topics.

I'm sorry but I just have a so fucking what view of this. A lot of people try and do the best they can when someone is in need of help due to an accident or a situation where someone has been injured and needs medical attention...The real Joe public hero's are those who go one step further and risk injury or even their own lives to help a stranger.
