Sikhism is the world's fifth most popular religion. A monotheistic faith, followers believe in equality and service to others, according to CNN. Sikhism emerged more than 500 years ago in Punjab, in what is now India. It was founded by Guru Nanak, a non-practicing Hindu who was against rituals and praying to idols.
