Is Sikhism just a way of life or is it an organized faith having it's own set of rules and laws. What was the need for the Tenth Master on the day 14th of April, 1699 to lay down the do's and don'ts for those embracing the Panth.

Some of us also propagate that being Keshadhari is not at all important and if so can a Patit or Sehjdhari or Trimmer or Clean Shaven be called the Guru-Ka-Sikh?

Sikhism is a religion.

Khalsa is the army of guru gobind singh ji, which includes all 5 K and they have to stick to the rehat.

If you dont follow the rehat and live it as a way of life, following some rules you are a sehajdhari sikh and not khalsa. Do you know what i mean? You can still be gurus sikh but you are not khalsa.

Yes that's right that Sikhism is a religion but at the same time it is falsely propagated by some of us that Sikhism has nothing do with the religion or the religious faith And also being a Keshadhari is important to be called a true Sikh The words half Sikh, Sehajdhari Sikh actually has no meaning

Sehajdhari is inclusive the idea is that one day they will become khalsa this way we dont make any one feel left out.

Jugraj singh from basics of sikhi said Sikhi is a garden khalsa is like the fence or thorns protecting the garden. But anyone is welcome in the garden. U know what i mean?
