Sikh sues Jobcentre after colleague jokes about landing remote controlled helicopter on his TURBAN

A Sikh, who sued the Jobcentre where he worked after a colleague suggested a remote control helicopter be landed on his turban, has won his case for religious harassment. Mojhinder Bal laughed when colleague Amid Uddin began flying the toy round the Jobcentre Plus office, ‘landing’ the device on desks and cabinets. But the devout Sikh took offence when another colleague, Sue Ramjan-Coley, suggested Mr Uddin land the device ‘on Mo's turban - he's got a flat surface’. During the incident on November 27 2007, Mr Bal, then told Ms Ramjan-Coley she was ‘obsessed’ with his turban and suggested she get one for herself.
