When Sarwan Singh a devout Sikh saw a dog drowning in a canal he decided to act immediately to save the dogs life. He took off his turban which is a sacred symbol of his religion. You are only allowed to take it off while bathing or at home but not in public which is disrespectful. He made a rope out of it, clambered down, tied it around the dog and lifted it back to safety.
He said “The moment I started taking off my turban, people watching around were shocked. They thought I was disrespecting my faith,” he added, “but what was important at that point was to save the animal’s life.”
A man who truly understands the sanctity of life, the governing body should read this and hang their heads in shame. How many more more lives will have to be sacrificed on operating tables for refusal of blood transfusions? How many more before they realize that life is more sacred than the symbol which represents it?
