Religious rule put aside to help another

“Man removes turban and places it under head of injured child hit by car outside primary school”

It always amazes me when people react to a situation without thinking about it, or without thinking of themselves. These are the honest from the heart reactions, when there is no time to second guess yourself or talk yourself out of getting involved. This is exactly what happened with 22 year old Harman Singh, who was at home when he heard car wheels screeching and a commotion going on outside his home. Harman, running outside to see what happened saw a child on the ground bleeding from his head. Moving immediately into action he removed his turban to cover up the young child’s wounded head. Some may think, this is not a big deal but for Harman in the eyes of some it is. Harman is a Sikh and for him being in public without his turban is frowned upon, but Harman said “I wasn’t thinking about the turban. 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. And I think anyone else would have done the same as me.” Members of Harman’s community largely Indian praised him for his actions, as he put the needs of a stranger above their strict protocol. Humanity still triumphs, which surprised internet marketers everywhere.
