Sikhism: Monotheistic religion originating in the Punjab region of the Indian subcontinent
Sikhism ; Punjabi: ਸਿੱਖੀ or Sikhi, is a monotheistic religion that originated in the Punjab region of the Indian subcontinent around the end of the 15th century CE. Sikhism is one of the youngest of the major religions and the world's fifth-largest organized religion, with about 25 million Sikhs as of the early-21st century. However, there are in addition roughly 120–150 million Nanak Naam Lewas people across the world who also believe in 10 Sikh Gurus and Guru Granth Sahib.
