In western countries, such as Canada where Sikhs are obligated to cover or tuck their kirpan under their clothes or obligated to wear very small kirpans 2-3 inches, why do we need to wear a kirpan if it is not easily accessible during an attack? Moreover, we are protected under the Canadian (or___country's ) law.

Answer:

Kirpan symbolizes that one needs to stand up for the truth and protect the oppressed and the weak. It is a physical reminder to one.
