I don't know if I've missed it on here, but the senior Asian judge has said that a school which has banned a Sikh pupil from bringing in a 5 inch ceremonial knife shhould let him do so. Now bearing in mind all the tra la about knife crimes this seems a bit silly; if it is only ceremonial than couldn't a cluedo sized item do? The second thought was this, when Sikhs fly to India are they allowed to carry their 5 inch blades? If so where does that leave aircraft security? If they have to surrender them, then why can't the pupil surrender his until going home time?
