A Sikh officer in United States Marine Corps got permission to wear a turban when on duty. However, there are caveats to this permission and now he is may sue the Marine Corps for their removal if his appeal is not upheld.

Lt Sukhbir Toor is the first person ever to have been granted permission to wear a turban by US Marines, a branch of the US military that is absolutely strict about its dress code. Marines have been known to incorporate changes very late compared to other branches of the US military.

Lt Toor got permission to wear a turban in daily dress at normal duty. But he cannot do so in a conflict zone or while serving in a ceremonial unit. An he is not happy with it. He has made an appeal to Marine Corps Commandant.

“We’ve come a long way, but there is still more to go,” he was quoted as saying by The New York Times
