An important Sikh belief is that all people are equal.


Sikhism is a religion founded in Punjab. Punjab is a province of Pakistan. The religion is over 500 years old. This may sound ancient, but is actually very young for a religion! It is a monotheistic religion which means its followers believe in only one god.

According to Sikhism, God created the universe, he can destroy it, and he also keeps it running. He has always existed and always will. Sikhs worship him and meditate by repetition. They believe everything is a part of God and God is a part of everything. Some Sikhs wear turbans, but not all do.
