The present research will examine the different aspects of the Namdhari movement, which is also known as Kuka Movement. The history of the freedom struggle of India is incomplete without mentioning this movement. This socio-religious and anti-British movement was established by Satguru Ram Singh Ji. It contributed to Indian freedom struggle and contributed to the upliftment of society in the 19th and 20th centuries. Under the leadership of Satguru Ram Singh Ji, Kuka Sikhs fought bravely against the British and sacrificed their lives for the sake of the country. They worked for the welfare of women and gave them a respectable place in society. Social evils like Sati practice, female feticide, and the dowry system were prohibited. Namdhari Guru Ram Singh and his successors addressed the socio-economic problems of his followers. The essence of the social, economic, and political education of Satguru Ram Singh Ji was to get rid of foreign rule by implementing life activities according to the Guru tradition and establish a socio-economic system based on equality and division in which no one should be unhappy.
