The Sikh faith rejects many Hindu practices such as sati (an obsolete tradition formerly practiced among certain upper-caste Hindus, in which a widow would immolate herself on her husband's funeral pyre), as well as many unequal traditions such as the caste system. Conversely, they reject Muslim principles such as holy pilgrimages, although many Sikhs do visit the Golden Temple which is the center of their faith in Amritsar, Punjab, northern India.

* MartialPacifist: The religion started off as an solution of peace by Guru Nanak created from Muslim and Hindu ideologies to mediate fighting between Muslims and Hindus through a meditation at the time and greatly opposed violence in general. Unfortunately, both Hindus and Muslims eventually decided to designate Sikhs as a threat and began subsequent persecutions, leading the Sikh leaders to adopt martial principles down the line to become known as warriors instead of humble peacemakers and haven't changed this ever since.

As their history moved forward many Sikhs began to move to other countries such as the UK, Canada and the US. Here they worked to build lives for themselves like many other immigrant groups. There were hurdles such as Bhagat Singh Thind who fought for the right to live as a US citizen despite the still racist nature of the country (this being in the early 1920's, with legalized segregation). Eventually he won the right on his third appeal to stay in America as Indians were characterized as Caucasian and thus "white". He later went on to earn a Ph.D. and became a spiritual writer.

Sikhs have a few tenets such as the 5 Ks: Kesh (Literally hair, but in context it means natural, uncut hair), Kachhera (long underwear), Kangha (wooden comb), Karra (steel bangle) and Kirpan (dagger). All of these make up the identity of a Sikh and are essential to their faith although these have created many troubles for the Sikhs such as the right to carry a dagger. Still many Sikhs find ways to adapt as best they can such as by only carrying blunt daggers, daggers permanently locked into their sheaths, or merely the image of a dagger.
