Sikhism / Sikhi

Sikhs, especially male believers, can be recognized by their distinctive appearance: an artfully tied turban ( dastar ) covers their uncut hair, the men wear a beard, and one often sees the steel bangle that Sikhs wear as a symbol of community. It is not uncommon for followers of the Sikh religion to be given expressions such as “Taliban” or worse because they are considered to be “fanatical Muslims”. Sikhism – also called Sikhi – is the fourth major indigenous religion of India alongside Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. He combined elements from Islam and even more from Hinduism with mystical elements from Sufism and yoga to create a belief system that today is a world religion of its own.
