9. And while the Sikh Turban is becoming a problem for the French (and shall I say a section of Indians), they have conveniently forgotten the role played by the Sikhs during the Second World War. Indeed, over 80,000 Sikh soldiers died in Europe fighting the Nazis. Thousands of Sikhs were buried in France. So it's a very special French way of saying thanks to the Sikhs: Thousands of you fought for us and died while protecting our freedome and we are going to honour you fifty years later by taking away the source of your spiritual and temporal strength- the right to practice your religion.




As i remember it took the French govt of that time about 5 days to surrender to the invading Nazis? Anyway, I think there are other ways to check the spread of religious extremism...which is the underlying reason for the ban.
