Dear Sarabha Panjab,
The turban also known as dastar is the crown of the Punjabi nation, even if you don’t keep your hair it is still the crown of your Guru. Every Punjabi should feel passionate about the turban. Every time a turbaned Punjabi is attacked due to their turban, every single Punjabi is insulted and humiliated
But certain Punjabi girls and boys laugh when their fellow Punjabi brother or sister gets their turban knocked off. At schools not many non- turban Punjabi person intervenes and stands up for the respect of the Punjabi crown when their fellow Punjabi is being picked on due to their turban.. Instead they laugh; this is like slapping everything the Khalsa stands for. These days it is hard to wear a turban, because it makes you a target for racist gangs, so I rate anyone who is wearing the turban and keeping their roots, with no regards to their safety. At least they didn’t sell- out.

The turbaned Sikhs are keeping it real and representing the Punjabi nation, even if they get beats for wearing it. Muslim extremists hate us wearing the turban, because they don’t want us to be Sikh and proud, that’s why they attack turbaned wearing Punjabis, in schools, colleges and the streets. They want to terrify us into submission and want to see no Sikh wearing the turban.
Some boys cut their hair to attract girls, because a lot of our own Punjabi girls don’t like boy’s wearing the turban. Just because some girls have turned their back on the Faith, Should all boys keeping their hair also turn their back? Don’t become sell- outs, these girls are not worth it, if they have not been faithful to their Faith will they be faithful to you, think about it!!
We need to stand together, whether we have hair cuts, or not, because every time a person is attacked because they wear a turban, is slap on every Punjabis face. I know the sell- outs don’t care, but if you got a little bit of love for your Guru stand up for your turban wearing brothers and sisters. We should not just stand there and watch a racist attack; we should defend the victim of this serious crime.
United we stand, divided we fall
