    PATIALA, NOVEMBER 23: A Patiala-based college controlled by the SGPC has triggered off a controversy by debarring Sikh students from a sports meet for trimming their beards and hair.

    The games, held on the Khalsa College campus under the patronage of the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC), ran into trouble during the last leg of the sports meet when the screening committee expelled several teams and athletes, including girls, for trimming their hair. In fact, the committee also took back the medals of some teams.

    What has the world come to...

    Why the hell, how the hell... can you even run in a meet underneath the name "Khalsa College"

    Do these people not even feel any emotion at all?

    If I do a major bad thing, and then go to gurdwara and look at our guru, I feel like committing suicide because I'm not worthy or something.

    How do people like me and people who trim their hair because "its easier to play kabbadi" live in the same world?

    You play kabbadi for tournaments how many times a year? 1, maybe 5 times maximum?

    Is it worth increasing ur Kabbadi score by 10 points at the expense of losing ur kesh?

    I don't understand the logic of these people.

    Neutral Singh, your in India....save us!

    Girls waxing their arms, legs wuteva...I've made my case before that I think Kesh is only head hair. But to cut ur head hair, for a sport you play occassionally, and to run underneath the name of Khalsa. I fail to understand.
     
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!
