<banned word filter activated>, What difference does a 3 foot sword make vs 1 foot sword or anything else. If something were to happen even a pencil is enough.

-I maybe be wrong, Often am but I'v read some where that originally Sikh's were to carry a full sword and with with British raj the current kirpan was adapted because the British felt threatened

-I dont know how to put it in words but this is effectively useless to solve the underlying problem. Much rather seems to be just a "in your face" political decision to the opposers.

Come on bro. You should know what your true ithihaas is. 

Originally it was panj hathiar or 5 weapons of which a talwar was just one.

From Nabha's Mahan Kosh:

No what I meant was that during colonial times, the brits banned long (proper size) kirpans cause they were scared. At least that's what i thought i was referring to lol
