Sikh Man Breaks Strict Religious Code To Save A 5-Year-Old Boy's Life


In the Sikh religion, males are required to wear turbans at all times. The turban symbolizes faith, courage and most of all, dedication to the religion.

One Sikh man, 22-year-old Harman Singh, recently made headlines after breaking the strict dress code in an effort to save a child who was hit by a car.

Singh recalled to The New Zealand Herald,

Gagan Dhillon, another Sikh who also saw the accident, said,

The 5-year-old boy was transported to the hospital with what medics believed to be life-threatening injuries, but he is now reportedly in stable condition, likely thanks to Singh's help.

Singh since became something of a local hero, although he feels the praise is unnecessary.

He said,

While it's sad kindness makes global news, hopefully, this publicity will inspire more to act as Singh did. The world would be a better place for it.
