As the commentator, below correctly observes, the Sikh tradition is that females wear a dupatta or chunni on their head, they do not typically  wear a turban (though they are a perfect liberty to do so). But note that the Bana of Guru Gobind Singh Ji can be worn by any Singh or Singhnee.

    Men have penises and girls have vaginas. The two are still equal. We do not get our girls to do our fighting. And just as high heels are not for boys. Turbans are not for girls. This is another Brahmin anomoly we find that crops up everywhere under the mask of equality. GET REAL. WAKE UP SIKHS.
    The Goat of mendes is Sacred in the Religion of Babylon – the religion of the establishment, and so in Brahminism as the cow. Thats how I know SIKHS HAVE BEEN MISLEAD ABOUT COW/BEEF AND NOW TURBANS. READ BANI PROPERLY AS MUCH AS YOU CAN AND REALISE THE TRUE SIMPLICITY OF SIKH DHARMA AND HOW NATURAL IT IS.

      I live in Vancouver and dress in totally western style clothes but I am an amritdharri.

      For me turban covers my head better than chunni. The chunni keeps falling off my head and shoulders when I am driving for shopping, going to work or simply dropping my kids off for school. it looks smarter than the chunni because a chunni makes a woman look paindoo and jhalli. It never stays on your head when you get busy doing everyday chores and getting on with life in general.

      How would you participate in any sport with a chunni covering your head which refuses to stay on your head to keep it covered at all times? I like to see some answers on this topic.

      According to the Guru Granth Sahib Bani’s,there are no limitations to tie turban by females .Now-ar-days many says that girls should not tie the turban,but that’s not the theory of Sikhism. Sikh religion have no boundation for girls to tie Dastar.
      As said girls in turban looks ugly,its totally wrong. One can’t imagine the beauty of a girl in Turban. At the same nobody pass comment over them,as a Singhni has its ownvalue in the society/public places.
      Sikh boys are very few in Sabat-Surat look.Now let the girls be ahead in this great look.

  3. I agree with that admin. Its Just there is so much propaganda these days with RSS and your highlighting of falsification of Sikh History is a great article. I feel Sikhs need to be very accurate about their religion so that all learn the real, simple, and gracious Sikhi that you know and love.

  4. ‘The Sikh tradition for females is to simply wear a chunni on the head. ‘

    sat sri akal ji, this is wonderful. i see so many western giels, some who r 3ho, others who r westerners who married indians and then pretend they r sikh and even khalsa, and it’s so gross. they appear pure, and gain praise for wearing paghri and all, when they r living a lie. the paghris look nice, but these girls are false, and that’s not pretty.
    thank you for showing a good example to fellow sikhs, not just with this pic, but with this site in general. it’s nice to see a sikh site that represents what sikhism SHOULD be about. no cults, no crap, just respect. this site makes me proud to be sikh, and it’s a site that i am happy to share with others. keep up the good work yaar. gur fateh

        Shame on You. Check some facts from Gurbani… “Sabat Surat Distar Sira”
        Guru Sahib did not write in this context that Dastar is only for Men but for all.

      The subversion tactics are rife in the Sikh community with Nirmalas and Brahmins spreading disinfo like the illuminati. I bet some hv even infiltrated and are actively encouraging girls to wear turbans to make Sikhs look stupid. Same as the giannis at Hazur Sahib who make Guru Gobind Singh look like a confused hypocrit/stupid/creates mass confusion. The only historical record of girls wearing a turban was when they wanted to fight in the wars alongside men, against the will of their husbands/family. That is the truth. Its a corruption of equality – this turbans on girls thing. Its not about aesthetics. Its about true/real equality.
      Men hv penis and girls a vagina. They hv equality in being equal and opposites of the same whole. The Plug to the socket. Adhere to the 5Ks, unshorn hair covered, kara (proper one not this neo retro Sikhi brahmin bangle), kirpan shud be worn by all not the turban. Its classic twisted reality stuff, with parts played up or down according to the manipulators requirements.
      Peace and get justice.

  9. wow. when guru sahib said sabat surat dastaar sira, he never added, “for men only.” the khalsa uniform includes a dastaar and applies to all khalsa. next you will say only sikh men need the kirpaan, because women should be in the kitchen barefoot and pregnant, not fighting next to their singh.

    historic sikh literature describes the singhneeaan of guru gobind singh sahib as wearing tall dumallay and adorned with shastars. a sikh is a sikh, and we women most certainly are equal to men.

    for those who think guru sahib’s crown is “ugly” on singhneeaan, i have no idea how to respond. i guess all i can say is i’m glad my husband was looking for a spiritual partner and not a fashion model. there are women who think dhaari is ugly… should sikh men now shave? who cares. sikhi is not about society’s idea of modern beauty. sikhi is about giving our head to our guru sahib, it’s about following his rehet, which clearly states that a sikh should tie a turban every day.

    if you don’t want to wear one, that’s perfectly fine. but please don’t attack those of us who do. we’re only submitting to our master’s (guru gobind singh sahib) command.

    you talk of brahmins and hindu infiltration. the REAL hindu infiltration, the real dilution, is those who would have a singhnee look like a hindu woman. without her dastaar, how can you tell which is which?

    My two daughters do not wear Turban, but my wife and mother do. I do request my daughters, to have this special gift of GURU adorned. But the girlish behaviour in them is holding them down. I am convinced that DASTAAR does not gurantee more of SIKHI, in women, but this holds good for men too. Those of us (men), who are wearing turbans and other Kakkars; may be, have not yet experienced the divine bliss related with NAAM. Amrit is given in the mouth as well as on the head. And, this Amrit on head needs to be respected and preserved by wearing DASTAAR. According to Gurbani, DASTAAR on head makes the body complete. (NAPAAK PAAK KAR HADOOR HADISAA, SABAT SOORAT DASTAAR SIRA). A sikh loves his/her Dastaar. I do not agree that, DASTAAR on women makes them more or less beautiful. It is disgusting to note that some of us still want to see women as items of beauty or no beauty and do not like to see them experience any divinity through the personal affection of the GURU. I do not think that woman of present age will ever bother to value the illogical and biased behaviour of men towards them. They have right to be divine. Bhagat Pooran Singh Ji of Pingalwara has written in his book on DASTAAR, that women with DASTAAR appear so divine that no lustful minds can dare to see them face to face. I am sure my daughters will soon grow up to learn the benefits of DASTAAR and will adorn it. Bhul Chuk Maaf Hove Ji.

  12. It seems that Sikhi and Punjabi tradition are confused as being one in the same. In America majority of women who convert to Sikh wear turban dastar keski domalla. A woman with a turban is gracious beautiful and inspiring beyond anything. They give much praise to Guru and Sikh heritage. The war is not over, there is always the battle with self/ego/homai to be won. Donning the turban is like wearing armor to protect against the influence of the 5 voices of ego kaam (lust) krodh (anger) lobh (greed) moh (attachment) anhkar (pride). Decision to wear a chunni or turban to cover head is a Sikh woman’s choice and right. I have only highest praise and regard for those women who elect turban.

  14. I am a turban wearing SIkh girl and I must say that i took amrit april 2009, i was into Sikhi since 2004 slowly when i was 13-14, and in all my life even after becoming a veg, even after taking amrit, i have never felt like i belong to the guru as much as i did after adopting the dastaar in sept 2009 when my school started again after summer vacation. As I walked to school I felt a belonging to the Guru that was deeper than before and I still feel it when I wear my keski. A keski is neccesary to girls as much as it for boys. A sikh should never be sadaran or ordinary. Guru ji made us distinct. Girls too. Kaurs need to adopt this beautiful saroop . Women of the world wear earings makeup and cut there hair. A kaur princess wears the crown of the king of kings. Kaurs are unique not only in their dress but also in their virtues. Once we understand we are distinct we start acting distinct. If kaurs dress like other women they will not feel the need to be distinct by their actions . Kaurs are the mothers of our panth it takes a mother to make her child paka in Sikhi. Please dont belittle kaurs by saying a turban is not important/neccasay…………..just cause somethings not popular doesnt mean that it is not important.

As long the head covered,,, who gave a damn if it s chunni or dastar,,,,,,, i do wear dastar and i never asked anyone permission and i do bcuz i feel like too and feel proud. and no one has the right to say the sikh girls or any girl cant wear dastar. if anyone in this world can dress up as they desire so no one can stop anyone to wear dastar. and BANNI has nothing to do with if sikh girls should wear dastar.

Do some academic forensic study. You will find meat/cow/vegetarianism was falsely put in Sikh religion.
    Understand this, the Brahmins run the sikh religion and hv split it in more ways than you care to imagine/see. If u can read truth, then read Dr Baldev Singh’s lesson on gurmat.

      The Dastar on the heads of both male and female represents spiritual equality before the Akalpurakh Vahehguru. It is there on our heads to remind both sexes about Vaheguru day in day out! It has nothing to do with physical appearance or physical body.

    Turban is part of the uniform of the khalsa, and therefore should be worn by both male and female. Guru Gobind Singh Ji wanted his Sikhs to stand out in a crowd, but how can Kaurs stand out, if outwardly they look like Hindu women? Also, Khalsa is supposed to be in Guru Gobind Singh Ji’s roop. How can a Singhni look in the mirror without a dastar, and claim to see that image? Simply, she can’t. Also, Gurmat Singh, please do an experiment, place a chunni on your head without your turban (if you tie one) for even one hour. Try to do even simple tasks requiring minor physical movement with it on, and then come back and tell everyone how graceful it is and how easy it is to keep in place on your head. Amritdhari bibis who wear only chunni inevitibly end up with their head uncovered much of the time because of the simple fact that a chunni will not stay in place easily unless you remain near motionless. Being physically active or playing sports with a chunni? forget it…

I actually feel more beautiful in it.

  25. Chunni is modest, beautiful, dignified and graceful. Turbans on everyone is a worrying trend promoted heavily by the Bhausaria inspired Randhir Singh of the AKJ. Of course women can wear a turban but don’t try to justify it as a religious requirement – it is not – that is typical AKJ brainwashing. Trying to make little men out of women is wrong – femininity and feminine characteristics are needed in a healthy society for both men and women.

    • G Singh, 52 Hukams of Guru Gobind Singh Ji says to wear turban, and does not specify male or female. A turban does not make one a man by the way. It may be optional for women in SRM, but see my other post for all the reasons why we should. I can’t keep a chunni on my head at all… it just slips off. Not good when you want to do anything more than stand still. Even wearing chunni over top of my dastar, the dastar is what actually keeps the chunni on! Also, when you can’t cut your hair, it becomes difficult to deal with. Turban keeps it ‘contained’ and in the ‘top knot’ we are supposed to have. Plaiting is actually against Sikhi.

      I tie a dastar and I am proud of it. Nobody will ever dare tell me to remove it!!! And I have an amazing Amritdhari Singh who actually searched specifically for a turban wearing Singhini.

      • Respect to you sister! I feel proud when I hear a Gursikh sister so proud of her sikhi and singh. Waheguru ji bless you and your family with prosperity and more sikhi.

  26. Being a sikh has nothing to do with being Punjabi. It is for the whole world. It is the misogynistic pubjabi sardars have a problem with women wearing dastaar- they are no better than their pathan brothers who want to whip their women into submission. And kindly please stop using the term ‘singhNI’, they are KAUR. it is equally as great as singh. Respect kaurs. A sikh in the eyes of God is genderless.

    And what purpose is the dastaar- please understand this. It is NOT ‘crown on head’, ‘uniform’, ‘to stand out’ etc. It has significant spirutual reasons. If nobody told you whilst getting Amrit then please go seek the company of the holy and find the answers. If you cannot still find then seek answer from the Guru- it is all there for you to take, if you are willing to accept it. Thank you.

    Waheguruji ka khalshaji waheguruji ki fatehji !!! I appreciate your all debate with core of my heat and also with the understanding of my with blessing of sai-e-saansa darvesh maharaja guru gobind singh( great donor of sarbans i.e father,mothers,wives, 4 childrens, and uncountable his true singhs in all battles.) i gave u both scientific as well as religious evidence in favour of wearing dumalla and also decorating saastar on it. 1- scientist believe that if person wear dumalla or any kind of turban not only sikh but also other like muslim or hindi minimise accidental serious ingury and kada on dumalla also fail the direct and straight attack on head whether it is men or women. 2- religious evidence if guru maharaaj banned dumalla for women than were are clues or evdiences especially in the 52 hukamnaame which guruji creates for saad sangat maryada. In dashmaam shri granth shaib which was written in taalwandi sabo ke by guruji. In this gurus scared granth guru ordered us to tie dumalla of 25 meters there are no specalisation of men and women. I rspect all but all india forgotten their sacrification specially hindi regarding their scared thread janeeu. After that bhai jethra ji picked shiss( cutted head of 9th guru) bring to anandpur shaib to offer a watch to guru gobindji. Guru asked jethra thier were other singh also present to seeing sahadat aur for boycoting aurengjab he told guru ji their many peoples but i unable to distingush between singhs and hindius. Than guruji told her jethra i can create a such type of singh khalsha which you identified from lakhs and crores of people. Here u can hide all four kakaars but not hide dumalla or turban. In addition, kesh is not only 5th kakaar inclusion of it dumalla and kesh were 5th kakaar. Think if person have no hair than he or she unable to being sikh . No they kept thier maryada by tying dumalla. Women have equal rights similar than male. In makatsar battle, women bibi pago insipred men by saying made chappati and wear bangles and they told them we women fought instead of u. 40 great mukten bhai maan singh

  28. Non-Sikh here , Gora (you guys call me 😉 , NOT associated with 3HO or Bhajan cult leader, fyi. etiher! I’m a huge fan and student of Sikh history, and am a bit sad to see the back and forth over what should be a celebration of the courage of Sikh women , Singhnis. Turban or not, it’s the inner strength and courage that Singhnis possess. A turbaned Singhni is an inspiration to all other women. Contrast with any other women, Singhnis radiate strength, courage, and purpose, so to my way of thinking, GUYS let and encourage them to show their pride and GUYS, live up to your Sikh heritage of treating women as equals of men, by saluting and praising them when they have the courage to tie a turban. Just my 2 cents, though not as qualified since I’m not born Sikh or Amritdhari. Fateh to you all.

  29. Simarjot Kaur “Plaiting is actually against Sikhi.”
    What the hell?! We’re not allowed to braid our hair? As a little girl I had two braids most of the time and as an adult my hair is in a bun or one braid.
    I have NEVER heard of girls not been allowed to do their hair in a braid or braids.
    We’re not marching off to war fighting against moguls anymore. The duty of a girl is to remember God and be beautiful – not to become a man.
    I Hate it when girls and women wear turbans – talk about defying Nature. Wait ’til you’re born a man and you can sport a dastar.

    • As you know or should know, authentic Sikhi denigrates gender differences. Sikh boys and girls cannot be gender identified by their first names. As you should know, before Sikhs became too hinduized, Sikh boys and girls were addressed in one gender tense only – male. Sikh girls can do anything and dress in any mode as long as it is not lewd and involves the cutting of hair. The first duty of a Sikh girl is to protect Sikhi – especially now that Sikhi is under a life threatening attack by Hindutva. Sikh girls and wear turbans – no issue at all from the viewppoint of Sikh History. Your opinion is just that, an opinion – it is not supported by authentic Sikh history.

    • ‘wait till you’re born a man…’ REALLY??? Isn’t that the Brahaministic thinking?? Women must wait to be born as men to do anything? This thinking crept into Damdami Taksal who tell women they are not allowed to do most seva because they are women. This thinking is against Sikhi! BOTH male and female have chance for liberation EQUALLY. Gurbani says ‘As Gurmukh look upon ALL with single eye of equality for in each and every hear the divine light is contained’ How can you uphold that if women are told to ‘be beautiful’ ‘be submissive to their husbands’ ‘see their husbands as God over them’ etc. The same ‘Singhs’ who are against women tying dastars, are those same ones perpetuating these ideas that women are subordinate to men, that women must respect men (while men are not required to respect women on the same level) that ‘wives must see and serve their husband as God over them (parmeshwar idea) etc. These same Singhs will then say that women can’t do kirtan at Darbar Sahib partly BECAUSE they don’t have turbans… (this has been used as a reason to deny women chance to do kirtan there), also seva as Panj Pyaras… both of which btw are rights in Sikh Rehet MAryada to BOTH genders. Yes we have different biology for procreation. Outside of obvious biological differences for procreation, we have EQUAL rights in Sikhi. What a Singh can do a Kaur can do! That includes ALL seva, and Kaurs are expected to stand up against injustice same as Singhs. Mai Bhago tied a turban!!! Do you think she was somehow not feminine?? Please… Brahaministic chauvenistic sexist thinking that women must be kept ‘feminine’ ‘submissive’ ‘subservient’ and given less rights….
      And for whoever said braiding is allowed please read Sikh Rehet Maryada… you will find that even if you don’t tie a turban your hair should be kept in a top knot and covered regardless. Dastar is the obvious and easy way to do that.
