    Fateh!

    I have a question about the history of the Jakara that I hear all the time, where did it come from and what is it's history. I often hear people doing it after ardaas, weddings and even speeches.

    Thank You

    Jasdepe

    I have a question about why do we use Gurfateh on Spn when almost at all other Sikh gatherings I have been to we use Sat Sri Akaal or Waheguru Ji ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ke Fateh?

    The Jakara isa war cry. It was to intimidate the enemy and give them warning of the presence of the Khalsa enemy. Gurfateh is a shortened version and that's why I prefer it in an informal setting.
