Ruling Allows Sikh ROTC Members to Wear Turbans - NBC News

My article for NBC Asian America on Iknoor Singh case
"The ruling in this case is a step in the right direction towards improving religious freedom and equal opportunity in this country," Simran Jeet Singh, Sikh CoalitionSenior Religion Fellow, told NBC News. "At the same time, I am concerned because the U.S. Military's discriminatory ban remains in place. I am hopeful that the Pentagon sees this ruling -- which aligns with recent Supreme Court rulings -- as a signal that it is no longer free to discriminate against religious minorities."
