5 Feb :"The security guards and police officers had no legal justification to apply any force whatsoever to Gagandeep and in doing they committed an assault on his person. The actions of both the security guards and police were reprehensible and unjustified." – Jagmeet Singh, criminal defence lawyer of Dhaliwal Law, who is representing Gagandeep Singh and working with UNITED SIKHS
"Sikhs should be able to live in dignity and with respect in Toronto, which is one of the most diverse cities in the world. We do not know of any reason the security guard could have to ask Gagandeep to leave the wash room. The guards actions appear to be racially bias," UNITED SIKHS Community Affairs Coordinator, Ranbir Singh, commented.
