I don't think this article needs to be considered a stub anymore, but I'm not completely certain. Dayv 05:33, 28 October 2005 (UTC)

No, it's not really a stub anymore. Although it could still do with considerable expansion! I'll remove the stub template. Sukh | ਸੁਖ | Talk 10:49, 28 October 2005 (UTC)

It's a stub again- the expanded portion was plagiarized from about.com and needs to be rewritten. The content taken comes from a page written and posted to About.com in 2002, well before this entry appeared.

I've rewritten it. Please check my rewrite to :
a) make sure it's sufficiently different to no longer be a copyvio and
b) Make sure what I've said is actually true - I have no knowledge of this subject. Theresa Knott | Taste the Korn 15:17, 29 January 2006 (UTC)
Looks good to me on both counts.  :-)

Some writing is hidden under the lower picture, could anyone do something about that please?

spritual soverignty[edit]

I linked the phrase "spiritual soverienty" to "dogma". It's not the best choice, but it's the only one I could think of. Is there a better wiki page about the notion that various religious groups each claim to have final truth on religious matters? ... I'll go have a look at the "religious intolerance" page, and see if there are some links there more suitable. Paul Murray 02:14, 7 February 2007 (UTC)

Khanda among other warrior communities[edit]

The Khanda is well known among Indian warrior communities like the Rajputs and Marathas...in fact its use really begins with the Rajputs. But the page implies that its an exclusively Sikh weapon...please obtain pictures and text about the Khanda from Rajput sources and place it here.

Thanks.

Fair use rationale for Image:CANADA Sikh Stamp.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:CANADA Sikh Stamp.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Definition of the word[edit]

The reference to the Iranian flag is relevant as is the Iranian language, so in order to clarify its meaning in Persian, it has been provided with references to the Iranian language. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 90.192.59.130 (talk) 12:58, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
