The Sikh Coalition recently filed a 41 page opposition brief in a historic case involving the right of an Internal Revenue Service employee to carry her kirpan to work. The Coalition previously wrote about this case in March 2006.
To the Coalition's knowledge this is the first time that a Sikh has fought for the right of a federal employee to carry the kirpan to work. The Coalition is committed to litigating this matter in order to ensure that America is a friendly place for the Sikh way of life. Kawal's workplace is replete with thousands of objects more dangerous than her kirpan. It make little sense to restrict her religious freedom in this context.
Ultimately the Coalition believes that it is standing up not only Sikh rights, but American values and basic human rights. [Sikh Coalition Press Release]
