Re: why arent Sihks Hindu?
No need to give quotes. It is better to let the follower of Sikhism describe themselves what they want themselves to be refereed as. Citing quotes to twist a point is what charlatans like Zakhir Naik do. Sikhs do not want themselves to be called Hindus, so why should we call them so ? Many Hindus try to remind Sikhs of their roots. But Sikhs have launched many statements that they are not Hindus. I don't give a damn about what is the overall population of Hindus, but I do not count Sikhs as Hindus. They call us rat worshipers and other such terms then why the hell we should call them Hindus. I personally do not count Sikhism as a dharm, but see it as an organized religion like Christianity and Islam.

When the light has risen, there is no day, no night, neither existence nor non-existence; Siva alone is there. That is the eternal, the adorable light of Savitri, - and the ancient wisdom proceeded thence (Svetasvatara Upanishad IV-18). :)
