ITALIAN COURT BAN SIKHS TO CARRY 'KIRPAN' IN PUBLIC PLACES

People of Punjab have migrated to different parts of the world, due to their own reasons. All those migrated people have always made sure to follow their own culture and beliefs they used to follow since their forefathers. It is proud to say that Punjabi people have made their own identity in foreign countries. Recently it came to notice that the Punjabi who have migrated to Italy were facing a problem, that they cannot carry the Kirpan. The sword or the knife that is carried by the Sikh is one of the beliefs of the baptized-Sikhs, it is worn as a symbol of mercy, grace, compassion and kindness. But the Italian court has banned the Sikhs from carrying the Kirpan in public areas. "An attachment to one's own value, even if they are lawful in the country of origin is intolerable in when it causes violating the laws of the host country," said the court. A Sikh in Italy has also been fined 2,000 Euros just because he was carrying a Kirpan when he stepped out from his home.
