Practicing Sikhs choose to wear the turban as an outward reminder of their personal commitments to God. Nearly every American you see wearing a turban is a Sikh. Each carefully wraps the turban cloth around his or her neatly-combed long hair each morning, knowing that this emblem of peace, righteousness, and social responsibility is often misunderstood by others. Despite social stigmas, Sikhs who wear the turban choose to be recognizable, putting their ego aside to wear a constant reminder of their responsibility to serve others and follow God’s word.
