Bhai Dhadrianwale’s Response to Lohri

Present-day Festivities

In today’s day and age, the celebration of Lorhi has evolved into an event that commemorates the birth of a boy, or the marriage of a newly-wed couple, but celebrating the birth of a boy while we neglect the birth of a girl, shows inequality to girls, which is totally against Sikh principles. Being a Punjabi festival, it has also contributed to the preference of boys over girls in Punjabi culture. This preference is also shown in the prevalence of female-infanticide in Punjab.

Lorhi should be celebrated for the birth of any child regardless of gender. Guru Nanak Dev Ji in Asa Di Vaar, which is read everyday, states:

Guru Sahib Says:
So why call her (a woman) bad? From her, kings are born.
