I am a Sikh Girl AMAWatch
Treat everyone of both genders equally- regardless of being male or female
Help other human beings around you
I mean I think you have to celebrate the celebrations like how Christians celebrate Christmas etc
if you choose to be a "baptised" sikh(lol had to use the word baptised as I did not know the correct translation)
then you have to keep your hair long
Wear the 5Ks
Theres some more like reading prayers etc but they can be googled
many people think that you have to go to the gurdwara/ holy places of worship and pray every day for religions but with Sikhism it is good to have a clear heart rather than praying all the time.Also you do not have to be a baptised sikh at all in your life, you can just be a sikh without having to follow the stricter rules, it is optional.
Yes because ngl there can be/ has been some enimity between different sects of Sikhism, but this is with many other religion as they have different parts of religions with different beliefs.So it is kind of common amongst different religions.But also some of the main reasons for castes are because initially there were many tribes across Persia(now iran) and they all moved slowly into northern India.Then some Jatt tribes(for example) split into the religions-Islam and Sikhism- the common religions of India.This was after Sikhism began as our religion stems from Hinduism.And Alexander the great led his "soldiers" through northern India, many settled in Northern India so many of us have greek ancestry.
Like I don't know if you have ever seen a sikh/ Asian with Blue/green eyes.My grandfather has blue eyes and my grandma has green and my mum and sister have green- and we checked and found that we have Greek ancestry.So to be fair there is a bit of a mix of people (if that makes sense as not everyone will have greek / iranaian ancestry- some people were hindus at the time then they converted- so this lead to more confusion and dispute.
Sorry if it is a bit biased- I mean after all I am Jatt sikh lol.The answer will probably be different depending on who you ask.But it was a really good question.
But don't worry you wont be peanalised if you don't do it if you are not baptised, my dad has short hair but he is not baptised so its fine.
