Chandigarh: The central government has planned to buy helmets for the safety of Sikh soldiers. For this, the central government has also given an order, but Giani Harpreet Singh, Jathedar of Sri Akal Takht Sahib, has objected to it. He said that wearing anything on the turban is against Sikh dignity.
Jathedar Giani Harpreet Singh has said that the gloves adorned on the head of a Sikh are not just a cloth of 5-6 meters. This is the crown that the Gurus have worn to them. It is a symbol of the identity of Sikhs. Wearing some kind of cap on this symbol is an attempt to destroy the identity of Sikhs.
Sikhs are prohibited from wearing skull caps in the sect. Whether it’s cloth or iron. In the Second World War, 1965, 1962 and 1971, Sikhs also showed bravery by putting gloves.
He said that some organizations are also promoting it, which is a matter of slowness. Helmet.com has been created a website, which is promoting helmets among Sikhs. It is wrong.
The central government has prepared a request for proposal to buy 12730 helmets for Sikhs in which there is a proposal to buy 8911 large and 3819 XL indigenous helmets.
In fact, Sikh soldiers wear a bulletproof patka during practice, which covers a part of the head. But this helmet will protect the entire head.
