Indo-Canadian Sikh comedian Jasmeet Singh, who’s known on the internet as “JusReign”, was forced to take off his turban here during a security check, weeks after a Sikh-American actor was barred from boarding a flight in Mexico for refusing to take off his turban.

Jasmeet Singh posted about the incident on Twitter, NewYork Daily reported.

“So the (agents) made me take off my turban in extra screening or they said I wouldn’t be able to be let through to catch my flight,” he tweeted.

“After finding absolutely nothing wrong because a turban is just cloth and the whole thing is stupid I ask for a mirror to tie it back again.

“The agent tells me there are no mirrors and that I can just walk down the terminal to the nearest restroom without my turban on,” Singh tweeted.

Turbans are mandatory in public for Sikh men, and are worn to protect the hair, as well as to convey a sense of identity.
