I do not know what is so remarkable in that. The percentage of sikhs in UK is higher than percentage of Jains in India. Why dont we make a hue and cry about a Jain being appointed in judiciary.

UK, by law, is secular, just like India. But to those who are praising the British democracy should actually stay there and experience the prejudice.

And all those who claim this is a victory for all Indians, its like the Penguins being jubilant at the success of the film "March of the Penguins"

Rabinder Singh QC has become the first Sikh to be made a judge in the High Court, and will wear a turban rather than a traditional judicial wig when he takes up the appointment later this year.

Mr Singh, 47, a founding member of Matrix Chambers, has forged a name for himself as a dogged human rights lawyer.

His elevation comes at a time of concern over the lack of diversity within the judiciary, which tends to remain an overwhelmingly Oxbridge-educated white-man's world. Five new High Court judges were appointed yesterday, four of whom are white men.

The House of Lords constitution committee is investigating diversity within the judiciary. Of the 3,598 judges in England and Wales in 2010, just 20.6 per cent are women and 4.8 per cent from ethnic minorities.

I feel the British democracy is far better than ours. Thias is an example of this. Hopefully Indians would learn from it so as to how the democracy is properly and perfectly functioned without being bias of anything. Thanks.

Who cares if the Judge is a Sikh or a Neanderthal who was in cold storage and got released as long his / her judging capacity in matter of law are high and of good merit?

Now, if u r interested, this is a TRUE CLASSIC. Check it out. This is one of the recipients of the Hero of the USSR medal during Stalinist times.

In WW2, when HItler's armies were menacing thru in early stages, a Soviet tank depot was caught off guard by a 10,000 strong German mech. infantry .It was an overpass in Central Asia. Well, there were poorly armed 2.5 k strong SOviet troops aka ppl from Central Asia KAra Kum. One of 'em was a dude called Arsalan Mekmadov. HE was just a soldier w/a old rifle.

Well, in the first wave the entire Soviet defense force got wiped, but Germans took 1.8k losses and pulled back to see reactions of tank depot. Only ol' Mekmadov survived. He just didn't give a s**t. He passed the time by going to nearby mountain and taking some bhang and sativa flowers off the mountain field ...more
