Breaking religious protocol for humanity, a Sikh-man took off his turban to lay it under a 5-year-old boy as the boy was bleeding after being hit by a car in Takanini, South Auckland. The Sikh man was at his home when the incident happened, and he rushed to the spot to help the boy who was bleeding on his head.
The 22-year-old young man Harman Singh saw that the 5-year-old boy’s head was bleeding. After keeping religious protocol aside without thinking twice that removing turban in public is prohibited, he removed his turban to help save the child who was bleeding in the middle of the road.
“I wasn’t thinking about the turban,” Singh told The New Zealand Herald. “I was thinking about the accident and I just thought, ‘He needs something on his head because he’s bleeding.’ That’s my job – to help.” He added, “I think anyone else would have done the same as me.”
The mother of boy who was injured thanks the Sikh man who helps her son at the time of the accident, putting religious protocol aside.
“I’m really grateful to everyone who helped him out,” Shiralee Pahia, mother of the boy, told Fairfax, referring also to a soldier who sprang into action to help her son at the scene.”
