UK Sikhs join 'headscarf' protest
Advertisements [?]
British Sikhs will descend on the French embassy in London on Saturday to protest against a planned ban of religious clothing in schools.
The protest will include Sikh World War 2 veterans who say they fought for France's freedom wearing turbans.

Organisers say at least 30 coach loads of protestors will be there to show solidarity with French Sikhs.

Jagroop Singh said making Sikhs remove their turbans was akin to making people "walk around naked".
