Harman Singh, 22, didn’t think twice when he removed his turban to put underneath the head of a five-year-old boy who had been hit by a car on his way to school. He heard the accident take place outside his home, before running outside to
investigate. He has now received lots of praise internationally for his actions. Another Sikh man, Gagan Dhillon, was on his way to work when he saw the accident and stopped to help.
He said: “Being a Sikh myself, I know what type of respect the turban has. People just don’t take it off – people die over it. He didn’t care that his head was uncovered in public. He just wanted to help this little boy.” Harman Singh later said: “I saw a child down. His head was bleeding, so I unveiled by turban and put it under his head. I wasn’t thinking about the turban. I was thinking about the accident and I just thought “He needs something on his head because he’s bleeding”.
That’s my job – to help. Thousands of people have said “well done”. I was only doing what I had to and trying to be a decent member of the community. Thanks to all who messages, calls… thanks all the worldwide Facebook members who messaged me. I think I just did my job nothing else.”…. so u guys shld let me rest abeg. And pls stop telling me dt I’m a fine boy. I kno already…..
