RPS Kohli was shocked when he saw reports about 2 Sikh players who were forced to remove their turbans while playing an international basketball match. He learnt that turbans are not allowed under the rules of the International Basketball Federation (FIBA).
Turbans are an integral and essential expression of his faith and RPS Kohli decided to fight the arbitrary rule that banned turbans.
RPS Kohli started a petition on Change.org which immediately got the support of 69,000 people, putting massive pressure on FIBA.
Following the petition the International Basketball Federation scrapped its discriminatory ban and Sikh players can now wear turbans while playing matches.
