Is Guru Sahib wearing topi and earring in this old painting

Recommended Posts

That's not a topi  it's just the style of dastar that many sikhs wore during the sikh raj when most of these paintings were done

A lot of the time the guru granth sahibbjis were written a lot before the Sikh raj period but the art work was added during the Sikh raj.

Afghani sikh soldier from 1850s    his got massive hoop earrings 

See, fashion and attire changes    he looks good for that time period, looks like a warrior and fits in,  but if someone dressed like that today haha!

No, that's not "Guru ji" wearing a topi.

That is a drawing that an artist created from his mind of someone in a certain form of dress who (in his mind) represents Guru ji.

That doesn't mean that's Guru ji. It just means that's the artist's representation, nothing more.

some people are doing parchar that old dasam granth saroops contain paintings of Guru Sahib with topi, so dasam granth is fake.

how to counter this wrong parchar?

Simple: There are Guru Granth Sahib ji sarups, too, which feature purported paintings of Guru ji. Does that mean that Guru Granth Sahib ji is fake, too?

The bani is real (Aad or Dasam), the paintings are artists' conceptions.
