Project by: Calli martens,

and Emma musto
Sikhs do have a sacred text.
It's called Siri Guru Granth Sahib

The Granth is the central text of Sikhism, a religion that emerged in the Punjab region of India in the 15th Century. Sikhism is a unique faith which has aspects of Islam: monotheism and iconoclasm, and Hinduism: reincarnation, karma and nirvana.
The main difference between Namdhari Sikhs and mainstream Sikhs is their belief in Jagjit Singh as their living Guru (as opposed to the Guru Granth Sahib, the present Guru of Sikhs).

Other differences include being: strict vegetarians; placing equal importance between the Guru Granth Sahib and the Dasam Granth, the holy book written by the 10th Guru, Guru Gobind Singh.

-World's 5th largest religion

-Originated in India, over 500 years old

-Distinct religion, having no links with Hinduism or Islam

-83,000 Sikh soldiers died during Two World wars

-Sikhs are living in America since 1897
