Guru Sahiban had made Sikhs Sant Sipahi (Sant first and Sipahi later) to fight atrocities, oppression, tyranny, persecution and cruelty and all their fights were not for material gains but to defend from offence of others. The Kirpan was also not a weapon for offensive purposes but was to be kept in a scabbard (ਮਿਆਨ) to be taken out only for defensive purposes. Therefore, keeping of the guns also will have to be seen in the light of mandate given by Guru Sahiban.
