My letter to Dictionary.com Webmaster

Recommended Posts

Dear Sir,

I have a very humble request to make.My complaint is against the definition of SIKH which can be viewed at:



s Sikhs, n. pl.; sing. Sikh. [Hind. Sikh, properly, a disciple.] A religious sect noted for warlike traits, founded in the Punjab at the end of the 15th century.


n : a member of a monotheistic Hindu sect [syn: Sikh]

Sikhism is not a Sect but a Religion Indepentedent

of Hinduism and Islam.

The Definition of Sikh

Any human being who faithfully believes in

One Immortal Being,

Ten Gurus, from Guru Nanak Dev to Guru Gobind Singh

The Guru Granth Sahib,

The utterances and teachings of the ten Gurus and

the baptism (Khande di Pahul) bequeathed by the tenth Guru,

and who does not owe allegiance to any other religion, is a Sikh.


We,The Sikh People will be Highly obliged if you change

the definition of Sikh in your dictionary.

May Wahe Guru bless you,

Harjinder Singh.
