Malaysian authorities are investigating the case of a Sikh military trainee who said his long hair had been lopped off as he slept, triggering outrage among the minority community.


The alleged incident has again shaken faith in a controversial national service programme, launched in 2004, to foster national unity by recruiting all Malaysians, including those from ethnic minorities.
