  • What's Trending: Sikhs Threaten Legal Action Against Scottish Ministers Over Census That Omits Their Ethnicity

Sikhs have threatened to take Scottish ministers to court if they are counted as a religion rather than an ethnic minority on the census.

The Sikh Federation said its community had been recognised as an ethnic group in the UK since 1983 and expressed its “disbelief” that it would not be identified as such on the census.
