I do not know much about this topic, but there are some rahit namas which I think have already been mentioned in this topic.

I don't like the colour red, but that's just me?. I used tell my friend not to wear red just because I didn't like it lol. And the reply I got was Har ik rang rab da a. But I still didn't want to wear it. ?

This shabad comes to mind when somebody says lal.

but the positive red it stemming from the 'robe of honour' one receives through simran and bhagti ...remember when we read about sant and bhagats they are described as having a lalli about their face . What would entice Guru ji , it can only be our loving minds and hearts in His remembrance . This negative red is the one that drags us headlong into 5 chors - if you eat in a red room , you eat more lobh

if you wear red you attract attention so get full of haumai and Ahankar

if you are in a red room it increases your aggressive nature krodh

the colour red is associated with base chakra so has frequency effect on sexual sphere also I read in a study that if either sex wears that colour it makes the other sex more 'interested' Kaam

if you wear red the more you want wear it and it catches your own eye MOH

Please please please, red is nothing more than just a colour. The Gurbani about the lady wearing red and Guru Ji advising her to get rid of the red, put yourselves in that time, wearing red for females was a 'dress up' colour.

If Guru Granth Sahib Ji clearly tells us God is within all colours and then within none, how can we Sikhs follow a Rehat written by a man and not our Guru. I know the history behind Bhai Nand Lal Ji but we need to start thinking and questioning. If whatever the rehatnama contradicts what the Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj says, dispose of it because I know that our Gurus could not say one thing in one place and then go against it or contradict it in another passage.

There is no colour restriction in Sikhi and nor do certain colours mean anything. If people believe wearing red makes one and think of a sin then maybe its for that individual to practice this upon themselves because the colour red wont mean the same for everyone.

You punjabis are dumb. Red was worn by Bandai Sikhs and ascetics, Green was worn by the mughal army. We are told to wear blue garments by Pyara Bhai Daya Singh, the first of the panj pyare and we are told in rehat not to wear red or green. Who are you compared to Pyara Bhai Daya Singh?

Also in Karninama by Akali Guru Nanak Dev Ji it states that the Khalsa will wear blue.

Drop your ego. All you punjabis that wanna wear your red or green patiala shahi paghs to match your shirts and ties go ahead, but don't try and justify it with your manmat when its stated in maryada and you haven't bothered to look into it.

    • Explain the differing length of his beard over years and why he kept his face hidden. Wasn't it to hide different phases of his beard regrowth ?
    • There is a group of Singhs in the uk who met with Baba Ji in 1999 when they were doing Tap at Guru Ka Lahore. There are also pictures from this time as well. To say Baba Ji went into hiding to live another life is quite absurd. Ask those who did Seva of Baba Ji when they stayed in California. 
    • here's a discussion from 2014 to provide more context:  Pictures from his funeral in 2008, where his body was taken from midlands uk to Los Angeles note that beard is covered at funeral???    I was active in uk London university sikh societies throughout the 2000s.  I don't ever remember anyone talking about this Sant. Perhaps this was because the sikh socieites back then were anti-Nihang, including BOSS themselves?  (and that is why there were parallel groups such as sikh student) I still cannot judge, there is katha posted from this Baba on this forum on the discussions in the threads I posted. I just cannot judge, however as humans we make mistakes. Even sikhs are not perfect, so I cannot say anything on whether this stuff is true or not.... However, the meeting with Dhadrianwala is rather suspicious. As Dhadrianwala and his uk chela group Harinder and NKJ are involved in those accused activities. Guru Sahib suggests grihast jeevan for sikhs. Even mahapurakh had at least one wife, if not more. These modern sants and prachariks keeping no life partners is promoting a very poor example of sikh maryada, and I will even go as to call this anti-sikh! Although I understand some Singhs choose behingam celibate lifestyle, this has nothing to do with becoming a sant or pracharik! And then the lustful side affects we are seeing in certain personalities due to this supposed celibacy is just awful!!! What are they attempting to prove by misleading sangat into thinking celibacy is some kind of spiritual activity?
    • hi, I know someone from the USA in a similar situation. Please get in touch with me via private message, so I can get them in touch with you.
    • Budha Dal had responsibility to give pahul to the whole panth including Maharaja Ranjit Singh's times. So their maryada would have normally been used and should be authentic. Hajoor Sahib should also more or less keep the same or similar maryada to Budha Dal.
