About 9000 turbans were tied in eight hours to make it a Guinness World 
Record by Sikhs of New York, an organization promoting the Sikh religion, at the annual Turban Day held at Times Square in New York on April 7.

Representatives from Guinness World Record judged the event and handed over a certificate to the co-coordinators.

Thousands of Sikh community members from
 across the US reached Time Square to participate in the record-breaking
 event. Several Americans and tourists also took part in this year’s 
annual Turban day.

The program was aimed at creating 
awareness about the Sikh religion and its customs and beliefs amid 
increasing incidents of hate crimes targeting the Sikhs. Volunteers from
 the community tied colorful turbans on New Yorkers and tourists while 
explaining the religion.

“On Turban Day, we tied turbans 
regardless of age, color, gender or race. These are core Sikh values and
 American values that make us Sikh Americans. Our diversity is our 
strength.” Chanpreet Singh, the founder of the organization said.

 “On behalf of the team of Sikhs of NY, 
we want to thank everyone that came from far and near to support our 
cause yesterday! We were truly overwhelmed to see the support of 1,300+ 
volunteers and many more participants,” the Sikhs of New York said on 
their website.

“Also, we would like to congratulate 
everyone around the world for creating a new Guinness World Record of 
“Most Turbans Tied in 8 hours,” it added.


According to the group, the purpose of 
this campaign is to bring awareness among all Americans and other World 
citizens about Sikhism and Turban and to help correct misperceptions 
about turban through which the Sikhs share the values of love, faith, 
equality and social justice.

The Turban Day has been organized in New York from 2013 onwards.
