    Khushwant Singh is on point.

    We need some sort of standard size of the kirpan and when it can be put away.

    Now some of you may say, "The 5 K's can never be put away etc."

    Well, there's always an unspoken one...the Kachera, is put away during sexual activities, and taking a shower...things where, its a simple necessity that you must put it away.

    Now, people may obviously say, "well than you can put kesh away in certain situations, like in a western Army"...obviously this is incorrect, since its part of your body, it remains part of you everywhere.

    I agree with Khushwant, we need more rules and guidelines for the kirpan, they need to be universal.
     
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!
