SIKH DAGGERS

In England there have been cases of Sikhs being refused entry to venues because they wear the Kirpan, a ceremonial dagger. “I wear my Kirpan and I’ve always worn it for the last 35 to 40 years, even when I was sitting in court or visiting public buildings, including Buckingham Palace”. “Not allowing someone who is baptized to wear a Kirpan is not right” according to Sir Mota Singh a retired barrister. Does Sir Mota believe that baptized Christians should also be allowed to carry concealed daggers? But what would be the consequences the first time that a Sikh uses his Kirpan? If men are allowed to carry concealed weapons shouldn’t women have the same right?
