The Big Bad Beard | part 2

by

“Many times, it happens that it’s the job which requires shaving the beard, and that he would lose his job if he does not shave. Usually in most cases it’s peer pressure and the office environment –but then again at times the employer could be creating problems too. A person can talk to his seniors and explain that the beard is a religious requirement; in that case, the employer cannot force a man to shave it. When was the last time you saw a Sikh being forced to remove his turban? Exactly, because they are solid on what they believe. Shamefully, we aren’t.”
