Supporters of a 14-year-old Sikh girl who was excluded from school for wearing a religious bangle called for her to be allowed to return to classes today.
At a rally on the steps of the Welsh Assembly in Cardiff, demonstrators called for schools to be issued with new guidelines on uniforms.
A legal challenge has been filed at the High Court on behalf of Sarika Singh who was excluded last November for refusing to remove the bangle.
She spent the previous two months being taught in isolation at Aberdare Girls’ School, south Wales, after staff noticed her silver bracelet.
She and her supporters insists the bangle, known as a kara, should not be treated as jewellery [sic] because it is an important reminder for Sikhs to do good with their hands. [Link]
