Even as Sikhs in France and India complain loudly about the turban ban in schools there, a school here has directed all its Hindu students to wear a pagri 'without fail'.
The Akal Academy here, which has branches across the country, started operations in 1993 and has 1,400 students now.
A substantial 20% are Hindus. Not content with forcing the turban on Hindu students, the school has now announced a fine for all "defaulters" and said that the turban is an indispensable part of its dress code.
