ROME: The Supreme Court of Cassation, the highest court in Italy has banned Sikh migrants to carry kirpan (Dagger) in public and ruled that migrants in the western world must conform to the values of the society they have chosen to settle in.

The Italian High Cessation Court has ruled against the Sikh Indian migrant who wanted to carry a Kirpan, a dagger considered sacred in Sikhism, even as it was against the Italian law, Italian news agency ANSA reported.

An attachment to one's own values, even if they are lawful in the country of origin, is intolerable when it causes violating the laws of the host country," the court said.

"The multi ethnic society is a necessity, but it can't lead to the formation of conflicting cultural groups of islands according to the ethnicities they-re made up of, precluding the unity of the cultural and judicial fabric of our country, which identifies public safety as an asset to defend and as such bans carrying weapons and objects aimed at injury," the court added.

The court's ruling came after a Sikh man appealed against another court's decision ordering him to pay a 2,000 euros in fine because he had been caught leaving his home in Goito, northern Italy, armed with a knife.
