A Sikh is any person whose faith consists of belief in One God, the ten Sikh Gurus, the Guru Granth Sahib(holy Book) and other scriptures and teachings of the Sikh Gurus. Additionally, he or she must believe in the necessity and importance of `Amrit’, the Sikh baptism.

There is only One God. He is the same God for all people of all religions.

The Sikh teachings are based on the principles of Fatherhood of God and brotherhood of humankind.

In a Sikh temple people of all the faiths are welcome. The Sikh holy book, Guru Granth Sahib also has in it the hymns composed by both Hindu and Muslim saints of various denominations.

A person who follows the religions sikhism which is from India and wears a full turban and is often considered a terrorist though we are some of the most peaceful people you will find and are definetly NOT terrorists. 90% of people who wear turbans in the US are sikhs not muslims or terrorists. Listen to some awesome music called bhangra. Are not allowed to cut their hair ever so that is the main reason for the turban. Wear the turban becasue in the past only royalty wore it and they used that power to oppress people so Sikhs wanted people to be equal so they started to wear turbans also and prevented the oppression. A lot of cab drivers in New York are also Sikh.
Guy 1: Yo, check out that guy in the turban. Hes probably a terrorist.

Guy 2: No way man your completely wrong, hes a Sikh one of the coolest religions ever from India. An ideal for Sikhism is to support all other religions also.

A person who wears a turban, oftenly mistaken for a Muslim. A very peaceful, yet a warrior, person who believes in one god, spirituality, and harmonious peace. A sikh always has the last name Singh, male, or Kaur added to their names. A baptised, amritdhari, Sikh must have unshorn hair, which include a full beard, for mean, and a turban and the five K's, Kanga(comb for grooming), Kirpan(holy sword which represents bravery), kesh(uncut hair), Kachara(knee-length briefs which represent self-restrain over desires and passions), and Kara( a steel bracelet represting restrain from evil deed)
Bob:"Ey, look at the Muslim wearing a turban in public."
Jassi: "Na man, thats a Sikh man, one of the most peaceful religions in the world.
Kevin: " yea, anyone that wears a turban in America or other western countries is a Sikh 99.99% of the times. Muslims only wear turbans in their countries to show high status.

to correct the above statement, a sikh must wear a turban to be considered a sikh. it is the identity of a sikh. the newer generation still wear the turban as to maintain the Sikh religion and represent!!!
