    Default Hide and Sikh. Garda Reservist Prevented from Wearing Turban on Service.

    A member of the Sikh community has been forced to withdraw from service after being refused permission to wear a 'police turban' on service to the state. The Sikh man had completed several weeks of training before being given uniform which did not include a turban which his religion demands of him. Sikh loses challenge to refusal by Garda Reserve to allow turbans on duty - Crime & Law News from Ireland & Abroad | The Irish Times - Fri, May 31, 2013
    He made a complaint under the Equality Acts alleging he was treated less favourably than others in accessing employment and in his conditions of employment.
    Lawyers for the Garda Commissioner argued members of the Garda Reserve are not “employees” within the meaning of the Equality Acts and therefore the Acts did not apply to them.
    This is blatant discrimination against a member of the community who wishes to serve. Just look at other modern states around us to see that it can be facilitated in service: Is it time Ireland became more accommodating?

    If you continue to elect idiots in elections, don't be surprised when the result is an idiotic government.

    Sorry, I think there has to be rules, would you allow women gardaí to wear a Burqua? Would you allow a naturist to police naked?

    Would you allow a Pastafarian to wear a strainer?

    Every single person who applies to be a Garda reservist is a fckn power hungry nutcase and should be shunned by society,

    They say they want to serve, but really they just get off on the power,

    Sick fckn freaks and sad ba5tards, all of them,

    The turban would be replacing the police hat. Not adding anything as such. Different kettle.

    The gardai are a non-religious organisation where everybody is treated the same and everybody wears the same uniform.
    Leave it at that.

    I certainly don't want gardai going around with religious symbols or dress.

    Or proactive members of the community who want to be part of a presence making their community safer rather than posting hate online,
