In a victory for the Sikh community of Washington State, the Department of Licensing issued revised guidelines to its employees regarding religious headgear, late last month. UNITED SIKHS and the Sikh community applaud Governor Christine Gregoire's Office and the Department of Licensing for their swift action in rectifying this issue. Salwinder S. Atwal, Gurpreet Singh, and Kundan Singh have all received their licenses, including pictures with their turbans as they are normally worn.
