"Absolutely revolting Sikh Basketball players were not asked but ordered 2 remove turban/patka & they obliged! I'd 've rebelled walked out..!!" tweeted Bedi.
     
Two Sikh players - Amritpal Singh and Amjyot Singh - were asked to remove their turbans before the start of a match on July 12.

They were stopped from entering the court moments before India were to open their campaign against Japan.
     
The match officials informed the players that they were breaking International Basketball Federation (FIBA) rules and were not allowed to play with turbans.
     
The matter was also discussed at the International Basketball Association's (FIBA) central board recently.
