    Despite being one of the world’s largest world religions, Sikhism remains one of the most unknown traditions in America. Why?

    I would say that because Sikhism does not condone actively trying to acquire converts, that would be a good reason why. We don't do a lot of parchar (publicity) to spread the word about our beliefs.

    but from here, the U.K i can see more people in the America making more effort to educate, mainly via the media
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
