When we see a dog in need, we dog lovers have that urge to help the dog in any way we can.
So when this man named Sarwan Singh of Punjab, India saw a dog who was drowning in a river, he knew he had to do something to help. He was in his car when he saw some men pointing to the dog in the river. He got out of his car right away to save the dog. He was shocked to see that no one was helping, so he had to do something.
But the thing is, he doesn’t know how to swim, so he came up with a clever idea. This brilliant man removed his own turban and used it to lower himself so he could reach the dog.
What’s significant about this rescue is the fact that Sarwan is Sikh. And in their doctrine, one can only remove his turban when he is at home or is bathing.
According to the post by DailyMail, Sarwan said, “The moment I started taking off my turban, people watching around were shocked. They thought I was disrespecting my faith. But what was important at that point was to save the animal’s life.”
Great job, Sarwan! You are a hero!
