Nihang by SukhRiar Nihang by SukhRiar
In this picture you are seeing Sikh Nihang (Sikh Warrior), worship to Waheguru (God). They wear approximately 20m to 30m clothe turban.

Sikh warriors known for their bravery, courage and power. They saved their religion by sacrifice their lives.

The word Nihang means crocodile and was introduced into the Punjabi language from Persian. The term owes its origin to the Mughal historians who noticed that these brave armed-monks fought ferociously like crocodiles. Traditionally known for their bravery and ruthlessness in the battlefield, the Nihang once formed the guerilla squads of the armed forces of Maharaja Ranjit Singh.

The Nihang were also known as Akali. This term is said to be derived from the Akaal Purukh in Punjabi - "the Timeless One", a term for God. Thus Akali translates as "Servitor of the Timeless God". This also symbolises the Akali as the immortals or the timeless warriors.

I believe this is the Singh, who made an oath to where such a big dastaar (turban) for 12 years, to highlight the plight of Punjabi youth from the influx of hard drugs especially opium which has seen booming production in Afghanistan since coalition forces took over.
