Wearing A Kalgi On Dastar?

Recommended Posts

Sat Sri Akal,

Sadh Sangat jee, I have a question that I wanted an answer to..

I am a Hindu from Punjab. So please pardon my ignorance.

I just wanted to know if Wearing a Kalgi is prohibted to all.

I know that in Hindu weddings the Kalgi is worn. But in Sikh weddings it is not. Because there is no one as great as Kalgidhar Dasmesh Pita Dhan Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji.

Does this apply just to the weddings or in general aswell.

It's not explicitly in the Rehat; however, only royalty or those trying to show some royalty wear a Kalgi. When we go to Guru Sahib we must be humble and have Nirmatta. I assume Ranjit Singh would wear a kalgi; however, it is very likely he would take the Kalgi off by just the sight of Guru Sahib. Some Sikhs are also not interested in wearing a kalgi because it just doesn't seem practical when going around our Guru that we should be engaged in showing how high we are.

I suppose you can wear a kalgi outside the Gurdwara day-to-day if you want, although honestly you'll look like a bit of a bellend, especially when you're pairing it with jeans and tracksuits

I don't know why you'd want to wear one in the first place though. The Kalgi is a symbol of sovereignty and I'm guessing you're not a sovereign of anything.

True it is a sign of royalty. Some buffoons forget to remove it when they enter Guru Sahibs Darbar on their wedding day, I suppose the fault lies with the ignorant people guiding them. As has been said already, why wear one anyway.

    • It goes both ways. If you hear the Islamic narrative they also prob up Islamic invaders and rulers as benign. You should hear what they say about an invader like Muhammad Bin Qaasim who is hailed as a hero and who they claim just came to save a few Muslim women while the defender Raja Dahir is portrayed as an evil scheming, degenerate pervert. But historic Muslim sources like the Chachnama convey a different story and testify how the invading Muslim Arabs had taken thousands of Hindu Sindhi women back with them.    Or look at how they view Aurangzeb. They shamelessly justify his hate  and war crimes against the Hindus and Sikhs. Many even call him a Wali of Allah or a great saint much like how the Buddhists view King Ashok. He is universally respected by Sunni Muslims. He is basically the main reason why most Punjabi and Mirpuri Rajputs and Jatts are Muslims in Pakistan today.   The Hindu and Muslim grand narratives are very different. The Sikh grand narrative can best be read at the starting of Bhangu's Panth Prakash. Bhangu very elaborately explains the condition of India before Guru Nanak Dev ji took avtar and then what followed and how Sikhs got raaj by Vaheguru
    • see doing stuff like that is just stupid! but then again you cnt expect anything else from india.  marathas were deafed by afghans    but eventually without a doubt they took over india and made it into a hindu state again      iv heard that captain amrinder wanted to remove sikh ithiaas from punjab txt books? 
    • i really liked this movie    the last scene gave me goosbumps!        i wanna watch ajay devgans tanhaji next   
    • thanks I'll look into that 
    • showing the muslims in bad light is part of the hindutva motive though isnt it   so thats why the movies are so unbalanced. these movies are basically used politically and they are having a big impact in india.  but they are gd movies!  iv seen padmavaat  i really liked it   amazing production!    i wouldnt mind if they make a movie about sikh warriors like hari singh nalwa    currently bollywood is really gd with historical epics
