|The Kirpan (/kɪərˈpɑːn/; ਕਿਰਪਾਨ ) is a ceremonial sword or dagger |
carried by orthodox Sikhs. According to a religious commandment
given by Guru Gobind Singh (the tenth Guru of Sikhism) at the
Baisakhi Amrit Sanchar (a religious ceremony that formally baptizes a Sikh)
in CE 1699, all baptised Sikhs (Khalsa) must wear a kirpan at all times.
Well, those Saint-Soldiers have their work cut out for them in London. With the wogs rioting and threatening everything, hundreds of Sikhs have taken to the streets to defend their Gudawara (shrine). Nice that some Brits seem to still have cojones!
