President Nicolas Sarkozy on Monday made it clear that Sikhs could not hope to be above the rules in France.
He was replying to a question on the controversy over Sikh students being prohibited from wearing turban to educational institutions.
Mr. Sarkozy was unambiguous and firm: “The Sikhs were most welcome; but we have rules, rules of secularism” which were applicable to all “on the territory of France.”
In this insistence on uniform application of rules, “there was no discrimination.” [Link]
