A voluntary campaign to raise awareness and improve respect for Sikhs who wear turbans and travel through airports. Security Services not familiar with Sikh Turbans demand their removal for checking. Unless there is a clear and a verifiable security threat that can be easily detected by one of several means, demanding turban removal is humiliating and insensitive. Hand held metal detectors, jhand pat downs and puffer machines can provide all information required to detect whether a Sikhs turban poses a threat to airport security.
In Warsaw, Poland, the converse has been going on - the Guards have been insensitive, irreverent and illiterate on this despite many efforts to raise their awareness. This despite the fact the Government has recognised the Sikh Religion through official registration of a Sikh temple in Warsaw
