    Origin of the turban

    Now we all know that keeping your hair is part of the 5ks but I Know people used to wear turbans before that

    My question is how did it start, and why did they wear turbans

    Where did the turban come from...wow a good question and one that you are not going to easily find an answer too. Unlike sikhism where the turban/pagri carries a positive conotation(equality,sikhism,religion,kakkar), turbans outisde sikhism and in the ancient days have usually carried a negative/occult/esoteric connotation and have always been related to secret societies, members of ancient mystical schools, philosophers and illumined brotherhoods.

    As far as the origins of the turban it is not very clear but the acient hebrew/quabalists/brotherhoods before judaism and after used to not only wear a turban BUT had to keep unshorn hair, they very much looked like sikhs. I am also under the impression that certain members/ranks in other civilizations around the world in ancient times also used to wear turbans such as egyptian/babylonian but again there is a sort of an occult/esoteric mystery as to why ancients used to wear turbans. I have seen a picture of British Aliester Crowly a satanist, illuminist, 33rd degree freemason and one of the most influencial men in the 20th century wearing a turban, so again there is that occult aspect to the turban. Hope this helps!

    Please repost your comments in appropriate threads already on the forum. Neither post is related to Illuminati. And BTW there is a thread on Illuminati already at SPN. I will check in a few hours on the status of my request.

    Later today the thread will be deleted. Thank you

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
