Can you classify someone wearing fully white as namdhari?

I was coming out of school today, and then I saw this man.

He was wearing fully white and he looked like he was namdhari because of his turban (no covered ears and last lahr sticks out at the back)

My question is, is it write to judge someone like that as namdhari?

Yeah he probably was Naamdhari, but it wouldn't hurt to ask.

I rather wouldn't because of previous situations such the conflict between Khalsa and their community in general at the time in the 1980's

But nonetheless, it's quite rare to see a Namdhari in my area even though there's like 3 Gurdwara's belonging to them right here.

Most average people don't care much about religious conflicts from decades ago, also even though Kukas aren't Sikh anymore, they still consider themselves to be Sikhs. If directly asking if he's a Sikh or not, or Naamdhari or not doesn't give much of an answer, you could just ask him what he believes in to get an idea.

But there are some branches of Sikhs who only wear white, one being Nanaksar.

Why do you care if he was Naamdhari?  Was he hurting someone in anyway?

Well the question in general was not if I cared he was namdhari but if I was allowed to classify someone wearing fully white as namdhari. But otherwise his looks he gave me wasn't pleasant.

He gave you a look!!!!! Everyone drop what you are doing and attend to this huge problem this guy is having.  Are you having nightmares, reliving the traumatizing look over and over in your head and the only way to escape the mental torture is to smack your head against a brick wall?  

If a look sets you off.  You need to get thicker skin.  The world is not all rainbows and chocolate bunnies with a little pink nose.
