Appropriately neutral?[edit]

The statement that "One who is neither following rules nor keeping all five Ks can not be called a Sikh." seems likely to be supported by extremely observant Sikhs and equally profoundly disputed by less observant Sikhs. Particularly problematic on a page with no references.

A more appropriate statement might be eg "Some sources consider that...", with relevant references.

Even better: "Some sources consider that..., while others dispute this.", with relevant references for both views. — Preceding unsigned comment added by GS(v) (talkcontribs) 13:25, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

A month later, the problematic sentence has not been substantiated or made more neutral. I'm removing it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by GS(v) (talkcontribs) 14:16, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

Kacchera or Kachera?[edit]

I have noticed that at the beginning of the article, the undergarments worn by Sikhs is referred to as 'Kacchera', however later into the article, it is spelt as 'Kachera'.

I assume that this is a spelling mistake, but either way, the spelling should be consistent throughout the article. I felt like this should be pointed out. 86.155.14.152 (talk) 15:47, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

Keski?[edit]

It seems like the subject of the Keski needs to be addressed. 100.44.4.72 (talk) 04:18, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
