This KS3 RE quiz takes a look at Sikhism. There are approximately 30 million Sikhs, making it one of the world's most popular religions. In the 2011 Census of England and Wales, 423,000 people identified as Sikh, with 9,000 recorded in the Scottish census of the same year.
Sikhism is a monotheistic religion which teaches the importance of one's actions as well as one's beliefs. Sikhs look for God inside each person, and in the world, through scripture, creation, and the example set by Gurus. Holy days observed include Diwali, Hola Mahalla, Gurpurbs, which are festivals associated with the lives of the Gurus, and Vaisaki, the New Year (celebrated in April).
Sikhism is one of the world's youngest religions, having been established around the beginning of the 16th Century.
