Date Posted:Tuesday, 1/23/2007 12:47 AM MST

Hey! I am 13 yrs old. I'm from Perth, Australia and I am wondering if you could answer my question!

Do all women have to wear a dastaar?

Thankyou very much! Hope to hear from you soon!


(REPLY) Sat Nam. What do you mean, "have to." ??? Wearing a turban is the way of identifying ourselves as Sikhs. Western born women especially feel that since Khalsa knows no gender, if men can have the privilege of crowning themselves with a turban, women should also be able to do so! So, we choose to wear a turban in public. When Guru Gobind Singh gave the Amrit and created the order of the Khalsa, the first gift he gave the Panj Piare was bana: the distinctive way of dressing!
