WHAT IS TURBAN KING DAY ?
Turban King Day was celebrate as the world celebrate other festivals Diwali, Holi, Valentine’s Day, Christmas etc now Sikhs are going to celebrate a festival devoted to their turbans ‘Turban King Day’.
A turban (from Persian, dulband; via Middle French turban) is a type of head wear based on cloth winding. Featuring many variations, it is worn as customary head wear, usually by men. All Sikh Gurus since Guru Nanak Dev Ji wore turban. However, the covering of hair with turban was made official by Guru Gobind Singh Ji, the tenth Guru of Sikhs. The main reasons to wear turban is to take care of the hair, promote equality, and preserve the Sikh identity.Turban is a precious gift by Guru Gobind Singh Ji to whole Sikhism. It symbolizes the unique identity of Sikhs among other communities. It is not a fabric but a mark of pride and there should be a special day or event for Turban. This step is very wonderful and we appreciate the efforts of this organization.
