Three Sikhs forced to cut hair in Malaysia


18 August 2005

NEW DELHI — Eighteen Indian workers from Punjab were reportedly subjected to humiliation by their employer in Malaysia who allegedly forced three of the Sikh workers to cut their hair and forbade them from wearing turban, the Lok Sabha was informed yesterday.

The workers escaped from further abuse of the employer and took shelter in a gurdwara in August last year, Minister of State for External Affairs E. Ahamed said in a written reply, adding 11 of them have since returned to India. The 18 workers had been recruited by a company 'JUJU Power Sdn Bhd' and had reached Malaysia in April last year, he said adding they were subsequently sub-contracted to another company 'PSEB Electronics Sdn Bhd'.
