About the DVD
Academics in 2008 found that simply noticing someone had a turban increased the aggressive tendencies of westerners because of the connection that has arisen between it and extremism since 9/11 and the 7/7 attacks in London.
‘Turbanology’ aims to address this misconception by delving into what the turban represents for the people that wear them. It provides insight into the history of the turban and acts as an educational resource to explore its importance for the diverse groups in society who consider it a crown.
About The Event
The Turbanology DVD will be officially launched on 30th January 2010 by the Sadh Sangat of Ramgarhia Sikh Temple Graham Street Birmingham. The event wil feature a showing of the DVD with a formal sit down dinner and have several exceptional speakers on the subject.
