Religion of Humanity: A Sikh Man Used His Turban To Save A Dog From Drowning

Meet Sarwan Singh, 28-year-old from Punjab, your new Hero! Singh decided to do something when he saw a dog drowning in an irrigation canal.



Yep, without giving it any second thought, he immediately unfurled his turban and made a long rope.


Singh told The Mirror, “I was travelling when I saw a group of men pointing towards the canal. I stopped my car and went over to check what was happening. I was shocked to see that there was a dog drowning but no was actually helping.”


Singh didn’t know how to swim, so he did what he thought was the only way out – use his turban and rescue the dog.



Sarwan, couldn’t swim, but he could improvise a rope – and so he did, with his turban. ‘The moment I started taking off my turban, people watching around were shocked. They thought I was disrespecting my faith,’ Sarwan remembered, speaking to Metro UK.  Bystanders helped Sarwan rappel down to the canal’s banks using his turban’s cloth. He then reached out and caught the dog.

The dog that was obviously scared, was later fed biscuits by Singh and both of them went headed their ways. We’re sure the dog will remain grateful to Singh and as for Karma, this man wins all the good stuff in the world!


‘The dog wasn’t comfortable. He was not coming to me at all. We had to follow him for around 200 metres before I was able to wrap my turban around his neck and pull him to safety,’ he said. ‘The dog was frightened, so I fed him some biscuits and let him go on his own.’
