An Australian school discriminated against a five-year-old Sikh boy when it prevented his enrolment because he wore a turban, a tribunal has found.
The uniform policy of Melton Christian School in Melbourne prohibits non-Christian head coverings for boys.
But the boy’s father, Sagardeep Singh Arora, argued that not letting him wear the patka, a child’s turban, was indirect discrimination.
The tribunal ruled in Mr Arora’s favour on Tuesday.
Having uncut hair, or kesh, is a Sikh belief and wearing a patka is an essential practice of the religion.
