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! SP
