Wear anything you want to the gurdwara as long as it is simple, nothing fancy, no bright colours. Something that doesnt draw attention to yourself, if you feel comfortable in shorts and think its not a big deal then wear them.

With 14+yrs maturity since creating of this topic, I would say that we should dress properly and shirts should be avoided. Living in sunny area, I wear shorts most of the time but do not wear it while going to gurughar.

Those who follow kachherra rehat, they probably wouldn't wear anything over their kachherra.

I have heard something called a half-stop is allowed if it is called. 

Those who follow strict rehat will not wear pyjama or trousers over their kaccherra.

But then their Singhnis will wear something over the kaccherra.

I mean proper rehit for Singhs is to wear kacchera so obviously this applies in gurdwara as well. Really your knees should be covered.

How many people do you see wear just a kachehra to the gurdwara? rolleyes.gif :D

That's besides the point. There are plenty of old paintings that show Singhs wearing their kasheras. If things have changed in modern times, we shouldn't ignore our history.

This one is the oldest European painting of a Singh.

that's the problem. Strict Singhs see it as being disrespectful to cover kacherras LOL

But seriously, the true rehit is to wear a kacherra. And definitely not a pajama. But obviously, since it gets so cold in countries like UK especially snow maybe there has to be some flexibility?

Look who's saying. 

No wonder sikhs are a laughing stock

Don't you think kachhera is a type of shorts after all and that baabey of certain sampardas only wear kachhera under their chole, chole that hv side split. Same in hazur sahib same in patna sahib.

Are u suggesting we shouldn't cover our kachhera ever?

Is it practical to live in world like dat. 

Like going to job interview wearing a shirt nd tie  but only kachhera as lowers? 

Lol like seriously

I'm sure someone will not be wearing shirt and tie if they are wearing bana. So your argument is nonsense again. 

Besides, where will Singh store shastars with shirt and tie?

    • In urdu we also use 'Mauze' so i doubt if it is hindi word.It sounds like a persian one.Indians have problem prouncing words which end with sound 'z'.Just like Mumtaz Mehal became Mumtaj Mehal and now just Taj Mehal.
    • i have no issue using persian,hindi,english words in my day to day conversations in punjab.I just though a good opportunity to learn "shuddh" punjabi. 
    • Sikhism needs neither a reformation nor a philosophy of free will. Reformations are for religions that are at a primitive tribal level in the first place. Sikhi starts off with Guru Nanak Ji feeding people langar, and preaching meditation of Satnam. If you start off with capturing war booty and sex slaves killing all the males, yeah, you need a reformation. Philosophy is (mostly) for people trying desperately to understand the universe without real divine knowledge. These types of efforts are called ਸਿਆਣਪਾਂ in Gurbani. (You did you Japji this morning, right?) All of these sianapan don't amount to a hill of beans. We don't have the burning need for philosophy that Westerners do because we can obtain complete knowledge via simran. ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੈ ਸਿਮਰਨਿ ਸਭੁ ਕਿਛੁ ਸੁਝੈ ॥
    • it's my fault, i should have phrased things a bit better. Basically based on the data he gathered same sex couples are more likely to settle into a routine and are less likely to do things out of said routine (such as cheating, which according to the data he gathered was surprisingly low compared to straight couples). By similar attributes I mean people like them in terms of personality and taste. In straight couples you can usually note a sort of polarity in the way they behave and their personalities.  Again this is based on one study, nothing official or on a large scale really.
