I hope this is not a stupid question... This incident happened three years ago, I was in 6th grade, someone in my class was cutting other people hair as a ''joke''. I assumed he knew that I was a Sikh and did not cut my hair because I had already told most of my friends. I was the only Sikh in my class, It was class change and he came up and cut off some hair off horizontally from under my patka behind my back. I heard the scissors snip, and my worst fear came true. I did not tell anyone about the incident until my mom found out 2 months later, she saw the cut and complained to the school. My question is if I am still a Sikh. I am only asking this question now because it has been troubling me for too long and I want to finally figure out. Please reply

This sounds like a very traumatizing incident and I'm very sad that you had to go through this. I hope that more awareness and anti-bullying measures work to prevent these incidents in the future. You are absolutely 100% still a Sikh and none of this was your fault. Unfortunately with a situation like this it is hard not to think back to it but it is important not to let it hinder you from moving forward in your life, so try to release the pain and feelings encompassed within it so that you can live without having to worry about what this means for you.
