A Sikh man Harjinder Singh Kukreja became the first known man to sky dive from a plane wearing a turban. He is now the “First Turban Sikh Skydiver” who not only accomplished a huge feat but also dived for freedom.
He sky dived from 4,000 feet for religious freedom by protesting the ban on turbans in France.
The turban is banned by the French government in schools and workplaces and put Sikhs in a very difficult position as religious freedom gets highly violated in France. France even went against the UN Resolution which allowed the wearing of Turban at all public places.
Singh wanted to create awareness and protest the ban on religious articles of faith.
Was it worth it?
“The scariest part is only for a few minutes to jump out of the plane,” he said.
“Once you jump, then it’s all cool.”
