Hello Guys

I found out that the Central Khalsa Orphanage based in Amritsar requires that its non-Sikh boys who are admitted be required to grow their hair and wear patkas until the age of 12 and turbans until they turn 18 in which they can cut their hair again.

What do you think of this?

They are going according to Guru ji's hukham that parents/guardians should not cut the hair of a child , which is fair enough it is not preventing the development of the child and helps them feel part of the family too. You can imagine your typical punjabi mat people being prejudice aganist a  child just because of first impressions .

so you proposing barber should called on monthly basis and paid for by gursikhs to go against the hukham of Guru ji? They will be sinning two times against children and against Guru ji's hukham. Baru Sahib also have strict rules on not cutting hair and wearing dastars/chunnis so are they also wrong?

Yeah but that no hair-cutting rule at the Baru Sahib only applies to Sikh students at that school not the Non-Sikh students who do have to cover their head but are allowed to cut their hair

what about all those poor moneh wannabes? who will speak for them ....

A orphanage like the Central Khalsa Orphanage and a private school such as the Akal Academy Baru Sahib and two totally different things. At the Baru Sahib a Moneh wannabes of Sikh background do have a choice to cut their hair but it will result in expulsion and the expelled student and his or her parents would have to select the millions of other schools around the world in which to attend, whereas the Central Khalsa Orphanage takes in destitute boys of both Sikh and non-Sikh background and any Moneh wannabes among their numbers can choose to cut their hair but it would mean being thrown onto the streets.

bro you are taking one aspect and blowing it out of proportion , they are required to kesh and heads covered in the uniform provided this is to treat all equally and not undermining the sikhi of their other wards , I am sure that the other faiths are not restricted in their prayers or faiths apart from that . Considering that they have a secure loving atmosphere to grow up and to  have a future in, that is priceless blessing  in such a backwards and ruthless society who have ultimately consigned them to the bins

My thinking is that you are not a parent yet. Parents or in this case, caretakers responsibility is to guide a child on how to make a right decision. No sikh will ever suggest the idea nor support the idea of hair cut as that is not allow d in our Dharam to modify the creation of waheguru ji.

Kids should NEVER be free to make their own choices. Only adults can make free choices. Even in US, a guardian must agree or give permission for most things a child wants to do. Its the law. Children are not considered sound of mind or mature enough to make choices. 

If u allow them to, they will eat candy all day n get sick. 

As long as the kids can choose to cut their hair when they are adults. Thats fine. 

Plus u wouldnt want the minority kids to feel left out and not fit in right?

How many non-Sikhs are there in Khalsa Orphanage? I would have thought that they would only really be Sikh kids there in the first place.

not judging by behaviour of others in relation to poor people , they will probably be ignored that's how they are found or given to Guru ji's orphanage , Daya is a very rare thing in India these days. Frankly they are better off being in the tutelage of gursikhs as they will inculcate the principle of one jaat, one family of humanity.

Kids should be allowed to make their own choices within reason. Bhagat Prahlad Ji was young and knew his own mind when he stood up to his father's tyrannical ways. 

My parents gave us freedom of choice all our lives and it ended up with me being the only one in our entire family group including cousins(I have many), who doesn't drink smoke and believes in God and recognises myself to be a bhagat. 

That's what freedom of choice did for me. 

 

Had I been forced to grow my hair long and wear a patka from a young age, chances are id have taken it off like a huge number of my cousins.

Well just like Sikh boys living in the West are facing peer pressure to cut their hair and discard their patkas and turbans I presume the opposite is happening at the Central Khalsa Orphanage. Imagine an orphaned Hindu boy who is 6 years old and short hair being admitted to the Central Khalsa Orphanage, even if he was not required to grow his hair and wear a patka by the administration of the orphanage, he would be under tremendous pressure to do so by the other boys who have unshorn hair and wearing patkas

    • Paedophile doctor, 28, who groomed '13-year-old girl' on Kik using the username 'olderc**k' walks free from court after his lawyer blamed his actions on working long hours during the pandemic James Peter Farthing, 28, spoke to the 'teenager' on messaging service Kik He asked to see pictures of her and sent the account a picture of his <banned word filter activated> But the NHS doctor was actually speaking to an undercover police officer He admitted attempting to groom a child and was given a suspended sentence  A doctor who attempted to groom a '13-year-old girl' online has been spared prison after his lawyers blamed his actions on working long hours during the Covid pandemic. James Peter Farthing, 28, spoke to the 'teenager' on messaging service Kik - under the username 'olderc**k' - as well as on Snapchat. The junior doctor, who worked for the NHS in Stockport, asked to see photographs of her body and shared an image of <banned word filter activated>. The account was actually being run by an undercover police officer and Farthing was later arrested for attempting to engage in sexual communication with a child. However, today he walked free from Minshull Street Crown Court after being handed a suspended sentence. Lawyers mitigating for Farthing, said he had been juggling working long hours during the pandemic, his wife's health condition and his training.  They said he had 'emotional struggles', had been watching pornography and smoking cannabis at the time - but that he was working to address his issues. Her Honour Judge Tina Landale sentenced him to six months in prison, suspended for two years, after he admitted attempting to engage in sexual communication with a child. He was handed concurrent sentences for attempting to involve a child aged 13 or over in non-penetrative sexual activity; and attempting to engage with a child aged 13 to 15 to watch and look at images of a sexual nature. The court heard Farthing spoke to the 'girl' on Kik - under the username 'olderc**k', Fiona Clancy, prosecuting said. He also spoke to her on Snapchat, in March. He said he was 23 and from Leeds. The 'girl' was called 'Beth' and was said to have been from Liverpool. The cop used a picture of kittens to portray how young she was, Ms Clancy said. Farthing asked 'Beth' if she was into 'older guys' and if she would send him a picture. 'Beth' told him: 'I'm 13, by the way.' Farthing replied: 'Cool. Are you down for role play or sex?' He asked to see her body and offered to show her his <banned word filter activated>. The 'girl' said she was worried about sending a photograph. Farthing reassured her that if she didn't include her face, it 'should be fine'. 'The fact that the undercover officer was 13 was reiterated, but the sexual conversations continued,' Ms Clancy said, as the conversations moved to Snapchat. Farthing told 'Beth': 'I have spoken to a few girls that like older men.' The officer then sent a picture of a young, clothed girl.  Farthing sent a photograph of his <banned word filter activated>. 'I really want to touch your body and see what you look like naked,' he said. He then sent another picture of his <banned word filter activated>. Ms Clancy said that when officers arrested Farthing, he said he was 'ashamed' and 'tried to stop', but 'gave in to sexual pleasure', the court heard. Simon Gurney, defending, said Farthing, who has no previous convictions, was 'deeply ashamed and remorseful for his behaviour'.   His supervisor - a consultant - and training programme director provided statements to the court. Staff and patients 'all expressed shock' after Farthing was arrested, the court heard, as people thought he had a good 'moral compass'.  Mr Gurney said they 'stand by him' because they acknowledge his remorse. The lawyer said it was the first time in Farthing's career that he didn't enjoy his work - and that his family was in debt as a result of the pandemic.  Mr Gurney said Farthing 'only has himself to blame for jeopardising' his career.  Judge Landale said the 'girl' made it 'clear that she didn't want to talk about sex'.  Farthing was ordered to take part in the Horizon project; to complete 20 rehabilitation activity requirement days; and to undertake 200 hours of unpaid work. He was also made the subject of a sexual harm prevention order - to last a decade.   https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9995087/NHS-junior-doctor-28-groomed-13-year-old-girl-Kik-spared-prison.html  
    • Plus who said I was some 'admitted expert' about the dumbing down? There's no two ways about it, everything is dumbed down for pendus. Who can't see that? The only people who can't see it, are the dumb themselves. 
    • Who do you think is the dog's bollocks then? Go on, give us a laugh.  To be honest, they are pretty much all insufferable to me, that's why I prefer reading. This guy just smashed it with his santhiya readings, I can't count how many other people have also learnt to read Gurbani from his recitals. That's got to be acknowledged. I did see him a few times at Goodmayes Gurdwara and he was better than most I've ever heard (which ain't many). I mean I stayed till the end for the first time. lol Moms used to watch Maskeen a lot, but as a young energetic person, I always found his style a bit boring and couldn't engage. Plus you know all these guys like to add their things in. And you should know by now, given the opportunity, I prefer trying to decipher the original puratan texts when I'm able to.  It's like shastarsingh said on another thread, You can pick up important information within two minutes in a book that you have to listen to two hours katha for....  Katha not my thing, so I'm no expert about it. But seeing as it's mainly done for rurals, I don't have high expectations anyway. At least they aren't bhangra paa-ing like fudhoos I guess? Not until later in the evening anyway.  PS - I think maybe because he is of a considerable girth, his vocal delivery is clear. Some others I have heard sound like they are mumbling somewhat which is off putting.  
    • You've got to be joking me, bro. This Singh is a top kathavachak for you? You, the admitted expert about the gradual dumbing down of Sikhi to appeal to the lowest common denominator, defending this religious gentleman? I hope you're trolling me.
    • Plz listen at 9:00 sec Some people using kisan andolan to fool nri Sikhs.
