On December 22, 2004 Tribune India reported, "The Akali Dal (Amritsar) has threatened to launch direct action against the French Government to force it to resolve the turban issue to the satisfaction of Sikhs. As a first step, the Akali Dal has appealed to Sikhs the world over not to travel by French airline, Air France and boycott all products of French make. A formal resolution in this regard will be moved at the historic Jor Mela at Fatehgarh Sahib on December 25 to mark the tercentenary celebrations of two Sahibzadas of Guru Gobind Singh."
