Sikhism began with Guru Nanak (1469 – 1539), proclaiming unity between Islam and Hinduism, and each other. Khalsa was formed in 1699 by the tenth Guru, Gobind Singh (1666-1708) to fight persecution. He publicly baptised the five beloved ones, who had offered their lives expecting to be executed. They all took the name “Singh” (lion) and wore the five K’s: Kes (uncut hair), Kanga (comb), Kirpan (dagger sword), kara (steel bracelet), Kachh (shorts). Women were name Kaur (princess, lioness). Guru Gobind Singh proclaimed the Granth Sahib to be the only Guru of the Sikhs.
Sikhism teaches one God; meditation on God’s name; honest work and service; respect for women as equals; reincarnation, that life is not sinful in origin; respect for all faiths; rejects idolatry
, ancestor worship, astrology, alcohol, tobacco drugs, adultery, cutting hair, ritual meat.
The Sikhs started to come into Britain in the 1950's and 60's. At first the men arrived and worked in the factories and services to help alleviate the labour shortage . They bought homes and called their families from Punjab. Gurdwaras were opened to preserve their Religion and language. They are now contributing at all levels to the prosperity of the country. 

May Nam, the religion preached by Nanak prevail and prosper.
And by Thy Grace, may all prosper.
