Although there are 23 million Sikhs worldwide and more than 250,000 in the United States, Sikhism remains a source of misconception for many Americans, especially in the years following 9/11. One of the world’s major religions, Sikhism has been practiced for more than 500 years and emphasizes such beliefs as non-violence, social responsibility and equality for all.
