Merger Proposal[edit]

I believe that Topi should be merged into Taqiyah. Because the article "Topi" is very brief and basically topi and taqiyah are two different names for the same thing. Even if there is a difference it is small enough to be completely discussed under the article Taqiyah (cap). --Wahj-asSaif (talk) 05:25, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

I don't know about Dhaka topi... The article Taqiyah says that "Taqiyah" is "a short, rounded cap". From no angle does the Dhaka topi looks small to me. --Wahj-asSaif (talk) 19:20, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Support The proposal is correct, a "taqiyah" and a "topi" are the exact same thing. The former is Arabic and the latter is Urdu/ Hindi. There is no reason for having two articles. -- SayedUmaarKazmi (talkcontribs) 00:58, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

Merger done by no further objections, and community consensus on the definition. --92slim (talk) 07:31, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Mainly worn by Sunnis?[edit]

It appears Shia Muslims don't really use this, also from the countries listed in the article. FunkMonk (talk) 17:23, 18 February 2015 (UTC)
