Sikh Boy Denied Enrollment in School Due to Turban in Australia

Via: SBS Punjabi

A school in Melbourne’s western rural–urban fringe that refused entry to a Sikh student because he was wearing a turban has maintained its position on its current uniform policy.

Melbourne’s Melton Christian College (MCC) has provided a written response to the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission (VEOHRC) in which the school refused to include any additional items amid the existing permitted uniform protocol.

The Sikh family of a 5-year-old boy claims that the institute’s uniform protocol inflicts indirect discrimination against their religious belief.

In an interview with SBS Punjabi, the boy’s father Sagardeep Singh Arora alleges that MCC has discriminated against his son by placing uniform conditions on his enrolment. See More at SBS Punjabi
