An Indian man has put aside his religious beliefs to help a person in need.
Harman Singh, who lives in Auckland, took the exceptional step of removing his turban in public so he could use it to cradle the bleeding head of a 5-year-old boy hit by a car.
Mr Singh, 22, was at home when he heard car wheels screeching, and then a commotion, and ran outside to investigate.
“I saw a child down on the ground and a lady was holding him. His head was bleeding, so I unveiled my turban and put it under his head.”
A turban is a type of headwear based on cloth winding. Within the Sikh community it is refered to as a Dastar. Wearing a Sikh turban is mandatory for all Amritdhari (baptized) Sikh men. Among the Sikhs, the Dastaar is an article of faith that represents honour, self-respect, courage, spirituality, and piety.
Members of the New Zealand Indian community last night praised Mr Singh for his action. considered a hugely significant act of humanity by breaking strict religious protocol to help a stranger.
