    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.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
