However when I went on Shockwave the stand up rollercoaster at Drayton Manor after the first loop there was a rapid acceleration and the wind factor literally blew my pugg right off.

What style of turban were you sporting?

Should be common sense really to make sure your dastaar is wrapped tightly or better still don't even go on these kinda rides if you suspect it will come off posing risk to yourself or others. I know ride operators do not allow you to carry lose items or coins or mobile phones on yourself just incase they fly off and hit people. More than a decade ago 3 British Sikhs who used to post on this forum I think.....drowned in a lake while they was on group trip out to a lake. They were good swimmers but their dastaars had wrapped around their bodies and prevented them from escaping the water and sadly they were drowned.

I read another case unrelated where a amritdhari Sikh family was turned away from the rides because they were carrying the kirpan. I would suggest these people to use their head, its common sense you do not go on rides or do any sort of activity where your religious items can pose health and safety risk to yourself or others. Especially in times like this its more important than ever to be security sensitive and politically aware of the times we living in.

If you can keep your pagri when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on Shockwave...

Excuse me! Think your getting the wrong end of the stick. Take a chill pill bro. Was an innocent post and heads up. I don't want it to happen to anyone else because they were not aware. It is a big embarrassment to come off a ride without your pagg. I'm sure their are loads of dastar wearing Sikhs who have been on it and come off with their paggs still intact.

    • No problem veerji.It is night at my place and i was doing some school work.So i misunderstood 😂🙏🙏🙏 Bhul Chuk Maf 🙏
    • I would attach a pic but then it would have to be approved first so just click on the link in the OG post to know what I meant ji
    • Sorry ji I didn't mean dastaar I meant like the paghs mentioned in the link b4. Im all for singhni's wearing dastaar and dumalla but I meant when a woman is wearing a nok pagh and her hair is out. Looks so weird and looks like a topi   Sorry for the confusion ji, when I say pagh i usually refer to nok pagh and dastaar for any   Bhul Chuk Maaf Ji🙏
    • Vaheguru ji ka khalsa Vaheguru ji ki fateh Veerji, Guru Sahib gave Daastar di daat to every sikh, regardless if the sikh is a male or a female.So many great examples of Singhanis who wear daastar such as Mata Sahib Kaur Ji, Mata Sundri ji, Mata Gujri Ji,Mai Bhago ji, and countless others.When we take amrit and become Guru Wale,we can all wear Daastars, regardless of Gender. Bhul Chuk Maf 🙏 Vaheguru ji ka khalsa Vaheguru ji ki fateh
    • 1. First of all, I said "singhs who lead a decent lifestyle." A "singh" who commits domestic violence (or is abusive in any other way) does not lead a decent lifestyle. 2. I was commenting on someone else's comment where they wondered why women marry men in the entertainment industry who are known to be unfaithful. If you are so triggered by me using "singhs who lead a decent lifestyle" as a contrast to such men, then please just accept the following more general point: human being have a tendency to be attracted to power/money/fame/glamour/physical attraction and value those things over modesty/decency/piety. That's why you see a lot of people end up with partners who don't treat them well. At some point, they probably had a choice where they could have gone with someone who treated them better, but the person who would have treated them better was not attractive enough to them.
