Excuses made by sikhs who cut hair-
1- Sikhism is in my heart. There is no need to keep hair and show off.
2- Sikhism is not about turbans and hair. It is about cleaning one’s mind, remembering god and having faith in him.
3- Girls say that these rules are just for men. Women can cut hair, do vexing etc.
1- You find it too difficult to keep hair. Most of people now a days cut hair because they find it difficult to tie turban. But it is not a big thing„, if you want to tie turban, you will get to know how to. Then you’ll not find it difficult.
2- You say sikhism is about remembering god, respecting god and having faith in god. But keeping hair is a respect of god’s creation. God never creates mistake. Cutting hair is itself a disrespect of god (be it by either man or a woman). If a sikh has faith in god, he/ she will never cut hair.
3- God never differentiates between men and women. Keeping hair is respecting god’s creation, and god created both men and women. So why sikh women are cutting the hair in the armpits and doing vexing and all that?
Guru Amardas said in Anand Sahib, pauri 21 and 22 that whoever doesn’t obey the Guru and do things which he wishes, will never get god. ਜੇ ਕੋ ਗੁਰ ਤੇ ਵੇਮੁਖੁ ਹੋਵੈ ਬਿਨੁ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਮੁਕਤਿ ਨ ਪਾਵੈ ॥
So we should live life according to the teachings of Guru Granth Sahib Jee.Guru Gobind singh jee told us to keep hair . Therefore, we must obey him. It is not blind faith, but sikhs have logic behind keeping hair.Guru Gobind Singh jee always provided reason for whatever he advised the sikhs to do.
Why all the saintly persons like Jesus Christ, Hazrat Muhammad, Hindu gods etc. had uncut hair?
Because they had faith in god’s creation.
Yes, Keeping hair and beard is not only what one has to do according to Sikhism, but it is good if one does it.
