Can someone tell me why so many religious people even teachers of other faiths see Sikhi as Islamic and Hindu views mixed together formed into Sikhi. I already know how to contradict these points but why do many people see Sikhi not as a separate religion with its own understanding of God and way to merge with God. Some say we have same views as Sufism or we are just a reformed Hindu religion. It is absurd I find some of these things in modern history/religion books. Why people are making such false assumptions.... I'd like to hear sangat's views and experiences.
