IT is heartening to see the man in the Vatican blessing and praying for motorcyclists (News, June 17).
I hope Francis will also pray for rescinding the discriminatory law which currently only allows Sikhs wearing a turban to ride a motorcycle without a crash helmet, and that, instead, all motorcyclists – be they of religious faith, or none – can equally choose whether to wear a dangerous and sensory-restrictive head covering.
