The annual Dastar March was carried by Sikh group Akal Purakh Ki Fauj. The group aims to increase the awareness of the importance of wearing the dastar.
The objective is also to bring the youth out of drugs and into Sikhi by helping others understand the history behind the Sikh turban. Punjab is among the only places in the world where Sikh youth have cut their kesh in record numbers. Where throughout the world Sikh youth are wearing turbans, Punjab is the only place with the trend in reverse.
The March was carried out all through Amritsar and various Gurdwaras were visited to help spread the message.
