Turbans, Head Scarves Allowed In Driver's License Photos
by Rick Sallinger
The Division of Motor Vehicles will no longer require Muslims, Sikhs or others to remove religious head coverings to get their driver's license photos taken. This comes after complaints led to meetings between state and federal authorities. Clarifications were made and new procedures put in place.
In the Sikh religion removal of the turban in public is forbidden. But the Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles was requiring that for driver's license photos.
Dilpreet Jammu of the Colorado Sikh community told CBS4's Rick Sallinger, "I immediately contacted the Department of Justice and let them know this incident had just happened in the DMV."
