French Sikhs are a tiny minority in France. Numbering about 30,000, most of the Sikhs are based in Bobigny. There is one gurudwara in Bobigny.

Turban ban[edit]

French Sikhs have been in the limelight since the 2004 turban ban, banning Sikhs and other religions from sporting a headwear. This has met with anger and world wide protest by the Sikhs. At least five Sikhs wearing turbans or cloth covers for their uncut hair were barred from classrooms near Paris.[1] For 3 years the Sikhs continuously persuaded the authorities to lift the ban on the turban.

Gurdwaras[edit]

Gurdwaras in France include:

  • Gurudwara Singh Sabha Culte Sikh France, Bobigny
  • Gurdwara Sahib, Bourget
  • Gurudwara Guru Teg Bahadur Sahib, Bondy
