FRANCE-RELIGION-SIKH-EDUCATION

TO GO WITH AFP STORY BY ABHIK CHANDA A Sikh child attends on September 22, 2013 a language class at the largest gurdwara or Sikh temple in France, located in the Paris suburb of Bobigny. France's Sikh community is ramping up a campaign for the turban to be allowed in state-funded schools amid moves to reinforce a 2004 law banning pupils from sporting religious symbols. The contentious issue pits the cherished French principle of secularity in public life and institutions against the essence of the Sikh religion, which requires followers to keep long hair as a mark of their faith and piety and a turban to cover the tresses, worn as a bun on the top of the head.
