CSA bans Quebec federation over turban ban

Religious sentiments have their own values in soccer and that is why whenever someone tries to implement its own autocracy over a particular religion, national governing body takes immediate action. We have seen how clubs are banned for making defaming statements that hurt someone individually or collectivity. In present case, Quebec federation issued a ban on Sikh players, who always wear turbans, citing that they can only play soccer if they off their turbans while playing. The federation even provided a reason for such a ban that it is for their own safety coz turban can cause them more injuries.
