Sikh man is hailed as hero for abandoning religious protocol to remove turban and place it under the head of injured five-year-old boy hurt in car crash.

This picture shows a Sikh man selflessly abandoning the strict rules of his faith to remove his turban and place it under the head of an injured five-year-old boy.

Harman Singh has been hailed as a hero after he removed his headware to cradle the bleeding head of the young lad who had just been hit by a vehicle on his way to school.

The 22-year-old was at home when he heard the wheels of a car screeching and rushed outside to investigate the commotion in Takanini, South Auckland, according to The New Zealand Herald.

“I saw a child down on the ground and a lady was holding him,” he said. “His head was bleeding, so I unveiled my turban and put it under his head.”

Members of the Indian community last night praised Mr Singh for his action, considered a hugely significant act of humanity by breaking strict religious protocol to help a stranger.

Mr Singh acknowledged the rare step he took to help, but said that protocols of his faith did not restrict certain actions in an emergency.

“I wasn’t thinking about the turban,” he said. “I was thinking about the accident and I just thought, ‘He needs something on his head because he’s bleeding.’ That’s my job – to help. And I think anyone else would have done the same as me.”
