First of all my intention is not to hurt anyone's thinking or practises, but being a pure sikh i want to just put forward my question on all the things wich i m seeing.

PLZ SOMEONE TELL ME DAT WHT HAPPENS WID A SIKH PERSON WHN HE CUTS HIS HAIR (KESH)....? i want to knw dat what happens whn a sikh person do this thing nd become a cutting wich we usually say- MONA is his life is affected or not..

i dnt have any wrong intentions behind dis ques. i just put forward dis thing becoz m seeing dese things around me many of my sikh frnds especially jatts have cutted their kesh.. myself being a sikh khatri i can't even imagine of doing dis but almost evry person around me is doing dis... many of my hindu frnds says me dat 'yr usne bhi to katwaye hai tu bhi katwaley' but i alwayz say NO nd told dem dat doing dis is a sin... waheguruji if it is a sin den y people r doing dis nd becoming rich nd happy... dey r gaining name, fame, money, etc

hahahahah my lovingly singh are getting deeper deeper in materialistic world ... BEWARE ,,,,,...Pittah guru gobind singh ji said "khalsa soi jo kare nit jung" it means that person is khalsa who fights daily even every second...everyone in the world cutting their hairs but khalsa fights his or her inner thoughts and never go in the parlour to cut his or her hairs ..this is called niyara panth....we are different from this world every true saint have hairs..even jesus had, mohammad sahib had, our gurus had....without kees you will be unable to recite true praise of lord...its the connection....even if you see in serials old BRAHMINS also have joora and beard...the other thing a person came to guru gobind singh and said pandit have one boodhi on his head and will considered a good and educated person in the whole society then pittah ji said i will give million boodhis to my sikh in the form of joura......i know many rich people having million dollars of property but they all are crying ....they are not happy....pittah ji said we should have gareebi in our heart ....but when people get money ,they get depends on you want to follow guru sahib which always help you even after death or go for money sahib said. .

Jaskaran ji , I have same dilemma when I see from my own eyes the qautleaam of kesh by Sikhs.. one thing is for sure that it is really difficult to justify one's action , now if someone has cut his hair but is a good person at heart , recites Gurbani and refrains from deceits and mayajaal, but on the other hand we find a sikh who keeps his hairs uncut but gets indulged in all sorts of nonsensical activities and hardly recites Gurbaani tell me how we will say that who is right or wrong? I have had discussions with many gursikhs, khathavaachaks, gianis on this part and evryone has his/her own point of view , but one thing is for sure that whole issues zeroes in on the question of identity, it's not hidden that after chopping of hairs one feels the same as any other person of different religion so there won't be any kind of moral obligation within his consciousness to visit gurdwara or recite gurbani, so indirectly we find that many people get detached from Gurbani and simultaneously visits Temples , churches and as a result the no. of people are getting drastically reduced to save our culture and heritage of Sikhism which is indeed a moral responsibility of every sikh. Now , I have seen personally a gursikh cutting his hairs giving an excuse that "Sikhi should be in heart" but when I met him recently almost after 2 years of incident , he tells me that he has become a Hanuman Bhakt and recites hanuman chaleesa daily , now this is not only one but I have heard many such instances of Gursikhs getting drawn towards Christianity in West after chopping of hairs. I am not against Hanuman Bhakti or Christianity I respect every religion but the thing is isn't it morally wrong that when we are given birth in some family we have an obligation to protect it's religious heritage as we are already very small in numbers as compared to other major communities And once we get to know the greatness of Guru Granth Sahib by reciting it regularly we naturally get attracted towards it's teaching and hence don't bother about others. Sadly , in Punjab the situation has come to such an extent that now the religious people have started persuading the young Gursikhs of at Least keeping Turban so that our identity is kept intact and youngsters don't get carried away by the manmukhi avasthaa.
