The Akali Nihang Singh ideology carries a range of complex philosophies within its ethos. These are based primarily upon spiritual and martial aspects of life and are to be given the utmost consideration. The Khalsa’s unique philosophy  discusses ideas which contain not only mythical origins, but martial origins along with sakhis from the times of the 10 Gurus.  The Nihang Singh order has it’s roots in the Akaal Sena (God’s Army), the army that Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji had established in a time where the Mughal Empire had ravished India for it’s spoils. The Nihang Singh order can, henceforth, claim a lineage of over 400 years, and the Nihang Singhs are therefore the proprietors of the traditions, spiritual and marital [history] of the Sikh faith.
