After Skydiving from 14000 ft, Harjinder Singh sends a subtle message to the French Govt. to reverse the ban of Turbans!
A Sikh businessman from Ludhiana attended a conference on “French Historical Ties in the Punjab” at the French Embassy in Delhi and sent out a subtle message to the French Govt. to reverse the ban of Turbans in Govt. schools and workplaces. Harjinder Singh Kukreja is one of the few who believe that a tacit message is more effective than protests.
Harjinder, who runs a European Chocolate Café, Belfrance in Ludhiana, presented chocolates to H.E. the French Ambassador, Mr. François Richier and even got a selfie clicked with him. One may either call it the Selfie-diplomacy or Chocolate diplomacy or both but this is a great way through which this Sikh sent across the right message.
The relationship between Punjab and France was initiated by Maharaja Ranjit Singh when French General, Jean Francois joined his army in 1822 in Lahore. It is noteworthy to mention that thousands of Sikhs fought and laid down their lives for France in the World Wars.
Such profound and deep relationships need to be handled with love and compassion. Harjinder Singh Kukreja is doing just that. We pray for better Sikh-French, Franco-Punjab ties in the future.
Every effort counts!
Kudos to Mr Singh for dedicating his efforts on this noble cause!
