Unique solution to bullying

Sikh boys attending public schools in Western Countries who keep uncut hair covered by a patka are often teased or ridiculed for being different and in severe cases, physically assaulted. I was thinking of the Central Khalsa Orphanage in Amritsar which admits male orphans under the age of ten regardless of religious background, once admitted they are required to grow their hair until it grows long enough tied into a bun covered by a patka; which they can cut their hair again until they leave the orphanage at the age of eighteen. I was thinking, in cases of extreme bullying of Sikh boys in public schools, a Sikh charity should approach the parents of the male bully who is under the age of ten and offer to have their son live with at the Central Khalsa Orphanage for a few years to learn about Sikhism, and that Sikh charity would compensate the Central Khalsa Orphanage for the bully’s education and accommodations. The admitted bully would learn about Sikhism and the Punjabi language but at the same time, would have to follow the rules of the orphanage which would mean he would be required to grow his hair to the point where it is long enough to form a bun covered by a patka. Plus, the boys living at the orphanage would be aware of why he is admitted and would revel at the reality now that the bully looks like them.

What do you think about this?

I did get picked on in school. People used to call my gutti a apple and tennis ball and laugh at me. They called me paki as well and Binladen.

    • The bigger the difference in height, the more odd you will look together, and you might not feel comfortable with a well-below height partner

    • but he also says later that if the husband becomes nastik a wife has the right to disassociate herself from him .
    • Agree with the fact that Talaq is not compatible with Sikhi. Even the word comes from Muslim lands. However, I think you paint with too broad a brush when you call divorce an "abrahamic thing". Christianity doesn't allow divorce, except for just a couple of specified situations: Jesus said:  He said to them, “It was because you were so hard-hearted that Moses allowed you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so. 9 And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for unchastity, and marries another commits adultery.”[a] Matthew 19 Marriage is seen as a holy sacrament in Christianity. By contrast, there is nothing holy about marriage in Islam. It is merely a worldly contract, and divorce is explicitly allowed in the Koran.
    • I don't totally believe this. Yes leave the bad influences but most shastardhari rehit is still kept in India, and you will see the pooran gursikhs get together in Anandpur Sahib on Vaisakhi and Hola Mohalla. Yes you can see them trying hard here in the west, and there are those who have kept full bana even with some shastars, but still something is missing from being all-rounder pooran gursikh compared to the ladliyaa faujan in India.
