de vali Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji ne jad to(n) Khalsa Panth duniya vich

pargat kita hai, kul Singha(n) nu kirpan rakhan da hukan ditta, jo aj

Assu 20, Nanak Shahi 444.

Takhat Sri Hazur Sahib

The entire Khalsa Panth is hereby notified that ever since the True

Father, Lord of the universe Sri Guru Gobind Singh has established

Khalsa in the world, he ordered all the Sikhs to wear kirpan which is in

effect to this day.

Recently people of Punjab have started to manufacture the sword smaller

and even smaller.

Many Sikhs have come to the Throne (Takhat) and requested clarification

about the minimum length of the sword.

So it is hereby ordered that the length of sword for the Kamarkassa

(waisteband) should not be less than one foot.
