The Golden Temple, Amritsar, India So fate (and history) has developed that this community evolved surrounded by countries and rulers who did not want to see the “state in the state” in the form of an organized society with its own laws, rulers, faith, principles. Throughout their history, Sikhs were forced to defend their faith and their society. Already in the 17th century AD, the first Sikh army was created to protect against the Mughal attacks. The history of the Sikhs is based on examples of the courage of men and women who defended an ideology built on the basis of equality of all people and the right of every person to choose.
The last (10th) guru, Govind Singh, proclaimed the creation of a new community – halsa (essentially a militant brotherhood) with a clear code of conduct, discipline and attributes of the Sikh. And today the members of the halsa wear 5 symbols:
– kes – not shorn hair, which men hide under a turban (dastar),
– kangha – a wooden comb supporting the hair,
– kachhh – underwear in the form of pants to the knees,
– cara – an iron bracelet on the right hand,
– Kirpan – short sword or dagger.
These five attributes symbolize the ideals of Sikhism:
– assistance and protection of the weak.
