Can U..........?

Recommended Posts

vjkk vjkf. i was wondering if a sikh could wear those "comando" style patkas when doin work, or playin outside, ie. football, basketball..... i dont want this to turn in to a "keski as a kakkar" discussion, because i dont think it is a kakkar, but i do belive it is important. i was just wonderin if u could wear those style of patkas for playin sports?

PS. Admin Ji, if this turns in some big agrument over kakkars;keski, please close this topic as soon as possible. thnx. vjkk vjkf

Some think the commando style bandanna is a replacement for a dastaar (it is called commando becasue amongst others the Punjab Police Commandos wear it).

bare minimum jio, which is what you're asking, is keski. thats not saying its a kakaar but if you feel dumalla isnt suitable, wear a keski. dont go for commando style patkas. they arent even patkas. They r wot the rappers n that wear in hip hop music videos. It looks stupid. Protect your Tenth Gate...

a patka is not a crown for a khalsa.

to take off dastaar for worldy reasons is nothing short of manmat

Ok if hes playing basketball and his phug gets knocked off then what? How good will that look that his crown is on the ground? Make use of logic.

your bhag can get nokd off no matter what you do, u mite aswel start wearin patkha instead of a dastaar. wat if your walking down d street n end up in sum fite n ur bhag gets nokd off, dat duznt mean u jus stop wearing it n wear a patka instead. tie a secure keski wid bunga n it wont cum off. n i dnt knw many people who hedder the ball in basketball.

So wear a Bishan Bedi or Harbhajan Singh type patka. Sikhs have excelled in sports without the commando bandanna.

I remember years ago apne munde wearing the commando patke with baseball caps over them.

Use the test: what would Guru Gobind Singh do? It's generally pretty useful. Unless you've got a messed up idea of who and what Guru Gobind Singh was. Or use another Gursikh: Bhai Sahib Randhir Singh or Baba Jarnail Singh.

I personally can't see any of them running around with a patka or "commando style" head covering.

On a separate note, please don't use the commando cover. It was introduced by the Indian Army for Black Cat Commandos and other soldiers in the Punjab during the early 90s. It is a head covering introduced and made popular by the enemies of the Sikhs.
