GUIDANCE ON RESPECTFUL SECURITY PROTOCOLS FOR RELIGIOUS HEADWEAR (SIKH TURBAN) TO BE IMPLEMENTED AT AIRPORTS WORLDWIDE
This guidance has been put together by The Sikh Network, a nationally recognised network of Sikh organisations, activists and professionals in the United Kingdom (UK). This guidance intends to provide relevant authorities with a reference point as to the importance of the Sikh Turban (Dastaar) and standard security searching protocols, which are currently implemented in the EU and the USA, so that these measures may be adopted in other jurisdictions.
These measures strike a balance between providing safety for all passengers and showing respect and dignity for the Sikh Turban (Dastaar) and other religious or cultural headwear.
