Kirpaan Legality

Supreme Court hones ruling on Sikh ceremonial daggers

kirpaan - from word "kirpaa" meaning "mercy". Represents the determination to defend the truth and justice
Although this topic is a little bit off what I would normally write (I'm not too big a fan of watching current events), this is an important ruling about to be made which underlines probably the only significant problem that amritdhari sikhs face in Canada.

I recall that there have been other court cases and human right cases which have all ruled in our favor to allow Sikhs to carry the kirpaan, and so having this ruling makes it very important to ensure that we can maintain this right (and responsibility).
