20-YO Sikh Man Removes Turban to Save Bleeding Woman Hit by a Truck in Kashmir!

For Sikhs, the turban is an essential symbol of faith. But the inspiring youngster didn’t think twice before shedding it for a larger cause! #Respect #HeroesOHumanity

There are times when the call of humanity reigns over religious faith, and a 20-year-old Sikh boy proved just that by removing his turban to save a life of a woman!

A native of Dewar village of Tral Tehsil, Jammu and Kashmir, Manjeet removed his turban to use it as a band-aid to save the life of the bleeding woman who had just met with a road accident.

Manjeet had found the 45-year-old bleeding by the road after she was hit by a speeding truck near Awantipora, as reported by KashmirLife. His presence of mind and sense of humanity saved her life by stopping further blood loss.

As her leg bled profusely, most people on the road watched passively, until Manjeet rushed to her rescue.

“I saw her lying on the road, with blood coming out of her leg. I could not resist using my own turban to plug the wound,” he told the publication.

For a Sikh, wearing a dastaar or turban is mandatory, as it is an essential symbol of faith, representing self-respect, honour, spirituality, courage and piety.

But, in such a situation, he chose to forgo his personal, religious obligation for the cause of a fellow human’s life.

A daily-wage worker in Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology, Kashmir (SKUAST), Manjeet added, “I did what anyone else in my place would have done.”

He does not consider his actions extraordinary, rather something which should have been ordinary. He reflects true religious bonhomie and humanity, upholding the Indian philosophy of ‘Unity in Diversity’.
