The big integration question: turban or not turban?

I have been following with interest, the recent debate regarding the Garda reserve who was told he could not wear a turban with his uniform.

While I sympathise with the individual concerned, I applaud the Minister's decision to stand firm on this issue.

I have been living in the Middle East for the last few years, and despite the fact that I live in one of the more liberal countries in this region, there are a host of social "rules" which I must abide by.
