I remember wristbands and arm bands being introduced in 2003 to raise awareness of horrific events of 1984. All Sikh youths who brought one were urged to wear it for a week to show solderity to the families of victims who still to this day have not recieved peace or justice.

This idea of the braclet seems pretty similar to Lance Armstrong Yellow Wristband. All proceeds of that bracelt goes to cancer research. Maybe you've seen them on a lot of ppl. Its pretty cool.

Isnt the whole purpose of this band to show we are proud to be Sikhs?

Its just a money making scam!! If you want to show you are proud to be Sikhi, Keep Panj Kakkar, wear Bana, show the people who you are and stand out in the crowd not wear a little band.

At work i have to explain why i wear a kara to some people or why i wear 2 kirpans. I have to explain what Sikhi is, where it came from etc. If it takes me longer to do this its off no inconvenience to me as that person walks away having learnt something about Sikhi.

The bands are pointless adaptations to wearing a kara. We shouldnt promote that. Guru Ji gave us Dastar to stand out in the crowd and we do. If people think we are some one we are not than thats up to us to correct them. Not take the easy option and by a band which says im sikh!

My man is just trying to make money of Sikh and despite the fact that some money might be going to the Gurdwara, whats to say we cant just go and see our Guru Ji, give him the cash directly, cut out the middle man and become his slaves?

Apologies if have offended anyone with this post. I have been off sick today and most likely gona be for the rest of the week :doh: (i hate being stuck in bed, cant do nothing!!)

Apologies for moaning, its just if we that proud to be sikh we will buy a band, then why cant we wear Bana instead? Shows more proud to be Sikh as when you walk, people look at you. some people in bad ways, that happens neway!! But some in a good way. The first time i went out in public in bana (not to Gurdwara) but in city centre, i had alot of people look at me, some were amazed, and some "how come he can carry a sword about and not get arrested" (If in bana then shud be thiyaar bi thyiaar in my eyes!!) Was crossing a road and a Singh bus driver actually stopped the bus, JUST to let us pass - there was nothing behind him, BUT he stopped to let Guru Jis Khalsa Army walk past.

If you proud, then follow Gurus Hukham. Not some street trader making some money!!

Line Guru Ji with Simran, not next man with cash!

i love punjab

Check this site out.....They are also selling these Sikh wristbands. Atleast this organization has a purpose and selling it for a very cheap price.

I have no problem wearing the wristband and showing the support for this organization. To me it's like wearing a ribbon for support.
