Who are ‘Sikhs’ and what do they believe?

Our Take: In the wake of the fatal shooting at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin, The Blaze explains Sikhism.

Violence against Sikhs, especially in our post-September 11 world, is nothing new. Due to their customs and a lack of knowledge about their beliefs and standing, members of the monotheistic religion are regularly mistaken for Islamic adherents. For obvious reasons, this has created a multitude of problems for Sikhs. The violent attack on a Sikh temple in Wisconsin on Sunday is yet another reminder of the pain and suffering that this religious minority has endured.
