..or Islam, .....or Christianity.....etc Hi all , There seems to be a flurry of threads that seem to surrounding this issue. I am interested in why people are so concerened about proving Sikhism is a branch of Hinduism? I have heard arguments from Islamists that Sikhism is a corrupted form of Islam. In another book I read (about a Sikh who became a Christian), the book is at pains to describe Sikhism as an offshoot of Christianity? I want to understand why this argument rears its head every now and then? Why do people need to prove Hinduism is Sikhism and vice-versa?
