Sikhs Becoming Ritualistic/an Organized Separate Religion?

Read Somewhere... What are your views...

Guru Nanak was against this as he believed us to be following of no religion but just humanitarians. Are we deviating from this??? The only thing that should ever be worshiped is oneself as thy temple is the body and our growth towards muktli. btw i try my best to goto as many religions places i can, to learn all about all faiths as oposed to just sikhism, cant be a ambassader for humanity and focused on sikh body.
 
Sikhs becoming ritualistic/an organized separate religion??

1. Sikhi has evolved into a way of life. Considering this is another 'ism' is a mistake.
2. Sikhs have become ritualistic, thats individual perception. BTW, do we realize when we dont know or dont want to understand the significance of something, it is as good as ritual taken by others?
Examples:
1. Sikhs bowing to Guru Granth Sahib ji
2. Muslims performing Haj
3. Hindus performing Hawan
4. Christians praising Lord

((( btw i try my best to goto as many religions places i can, to learn all about all faiths as oposed to just sikhism, cant be a ambassader for humanity and focused on sikh body. ))) Being a better human always thanking Him, is the best religion. Second part of sentence is unclear though.

Best Regards.
