"Sikh Army Captain Allowed to Wear Beard and Turban in Uniform"
--Nadeen Shaker (5 April 2016)
The US Army has granted permission ( a 'religious accommodation' ) for Captain Simratpal Singh,
a Sikh, to grow a beard and wear a turban while serving on active duty.
Will an ignorant American see his beard and turban and wrongly stereotype him as a Muslim,
even as a 'Muslim terrorist'? Some Sikhs have been murdered after being misidentified as Muslims in the USA.
