The Shahi Dastar came from Afghanistan, not the British.

started as a cover for old-style dumallas. the dumallas were the "fiftys", while a patka like cover was tied. surely punjabi muslims wore something resembling the shahi pagg, moreover style gained prominence in punjab after afghan invasions and sikh empire. Mughals wore old style dumallas so did the gurus.

What do they mean by 'pointy' turban? Is that the style Guru Gobind Singh Ji wore?

Gurus wore Mughal-style dumallas. Don't trust modern paintings where it is shown as something between a dumalla, a gol dastar and a fifty wali pointy turban

The guy claimed that pointy Dastars came from Britain which just isn't true, as a whole Goras haven't worn turbans for thousands of years. The Shahis; however, came from Afghanistan. (Sikhs wore it to show they were the rulers of Afghanistan, when they liberated Kabul).

the brits actually made it mandatory for sikhs joining their army to tie this particular style.

Man, that NEVER happened, NEVER EVER. Hari Singh Nalwa got Peshawar and he died protecting it; Sikhs never captured Kabul. Only in 1838 after the signing the Tripartite treaty between the British, Sikhs and Afghans, Maharaja Ranjit Singh paraded in Kabul with his Fauj-i-Khas. Just to sign the treaty ,Nothing more than that. Plus, Sikhs wore that style since 1750s

A dastar is a dastar, whichever style ! 

He should be more concerned about the fact that most of our boys thesedays , even the kesdhari ones are too lazy to tie a parna nowadays when going nearby . Rather they just pull up a bandana like cap. 

Thats a more threat thats spreading viral ,as I see more and more kesdhari youth with caps or bandanas (they look like skull caps worn by muslims !) than a nok wali dastar. Encourage them to wear a 2 meter parna that takes 2 minutes to tie rather than pulling up a "nylon bandana" that makes them look like muslims.

The fascists are out in force..  as is clearly demonstrated by this thread when you become reductive in your thoughts the only way to go is to become even more reductive.. Become even more obsessed with nonsensical arguments.. We should give sewadaars protractors to determine whether a dastaar is acceptable... Whilst we are at it lets check whether the shade of the dastaar is acceptable.. 

In the hands of the bigots who even think this is a issue the message of Guru Nanak Dev Ji will be lost forever 

This might be a deliberate well planned agenda of anti sikh forces to try to distract us from actual issues. 

Or maybe ppl like these are just too scared or inept to solve actual issues the kaum faces. So they focus on trivial things
