    I know that people look down upon them but honestly you have to look at this from a modern view. according to our religion cutting ones hair is wrong. Does that mean that guruji has turned hi back on those of us that cut our hair. No it is a pointless argument to say that because you cut your hair or have a tattoo u are a bad person or that guru ji looks down upon you. A religion must evolve according to the times. Every major religion has changed with the times but Sikhism. I ask why. Guru ji gave us rules to guide us not to bind us. We are free thinking human beings and must behave as such. Even though i am a devout Sikh i am a human being first. Also there is no evidence that anything written in the guru granth sahib is completely true nor scientifically possible. You cannot let ancient rules govern your life. Thats just my take i know i am going to be looked upon as a non believer but everyone is a free thinking human being some let ancient rules govern their lives others accept those rules but continue to dwell in the modern world

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!
