To Bully a Sikh

by Trent Gilliss, senior editor

"Being alone somewhere where you’re the only individual of that type really takes a toll on you. Being the only Sikh going around with a turban, or with a patka in this case, it really made me stand out." 

The definition of bullying is difficult to pin down sometimes. Harneel “Neel” Singh shares his experiences of going to school in the U.S. and wearing his patka. He helps us understand that what some consider talking smack or harmless kidding are more injurious than that. They are demeaning a person who demonstrates his faith as a young Sikh in the public education system in the United States.
