Abstract

The Namdhari community is an integral part of Sikh religion. Namdharis are known as kuka; kuka movement that was started by Satguru Ram Singh against the Britishers during colonial India as well to reform the Sikh religion and society. The followers of Satguru Ram Singh are being called kuka due to their shouting in the religious congregations while chanting the name of God. Due to continuous chanting of the name of God, they got the name Namdhari. Since this sect was established in Punjab, India, therefore most of the Namdharis live in India only. Apart from this, as it expanded with time, some of Namdharis left India and settled in foreign countries also. The present paper examines the culture and traditions of the Namdhari community in India.
