Importance of Panj Kakars
Hearing the word "Panj Kakars" we know that every Sikh is suppose to adorn the kakars all the time.
But do you know the history behind the use of Kakars ?

At the time of Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji (the ninth Guru of the Sikhs), many Hindus were forced to become Muslims by the Mughal Emperor, Aurangzeb. In order to protect the Hindus Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji had to sacrifice his life. Therefore, to make his Sikhs become brave and protective and to make them look unique, Guru Gobind Singh Ji (the tenth Guru of the Sikhs) once called all the Sikhs to gather at Anandpur Sahib on 13th April 1699. There, he asked for the ones who could sacrifice their life for the religion. Out of whole lot of people only five people responded, they were ; Bhai Daya Ram, Bhai Dharam Chand, Bhai Muhakkam Chand, Bhai Sahib Chand and Bhai Himmat Rai.

Although these five people were from different caste they still gave respect to Guru Gobind Singh Ji's words. Guru took them behind the tent where he chopped off their heads. As he appeared out of the tent, blood was dripping from the sword, different kind of thoughts invaded people's mind. But when Guru brought them out, they were perfectly alright (their bodies were the same but their heads were exchanged).
Thereafter, Guru declared those five people as the beloved ones or "Panj Pyare" by letting them have Amrit (Holy water). Then he himself had Amrit and annouced that every male Sikhs should add "Singh" after his name whereas, "Kaur" after every female Sikhs' name. In addition, he made his Sikhs look unique and made them brave by introducing 'Panj Kakars' in order to protect themselves.

In other words : "Singhs and Kaurs with Panj Kakars are brave and unique". He made his people learn to fight against injustice. Therefore, we. as the disciples of our Guru, repecting his words, should try to keep all the kakars. Unfortunately, nowadays, people have very rare knowledge about the Panj Kakars. Whereas a people can be called a Sikh only if he fulfills his duty by just obeying Sri Satguru Ji's words and teachings. The most important is that everyone should look upon himself whether he adorns all the five Kakars ?.

Overall, we, as the Sikhs (Namdhari Sikhs), should try to pay back for the sacrifice that Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji gave and prove that we are not less than anybody else.
We should rather be proud of being Namdhari with our Great Guru protecting us.
