Sikhism started in the year 1469 ( 5 Centuries ago ) with the birth of Guru Nanak . Guru Gobind Singh Ji established Khalsa Panth on 13 April 1699 and instructed every Sikh to use the words Singh ( for men ) and Kaur (for Women) along with their name. Sikhs prior to that don't use the words "Singh and Kaur" with their name.

Sikhism started with the birth of Guru Nanak Dev ji, and its teachings and opinions were quite different from Hinduism. The 9th Guru of Sikhs, Guru Teg Bahadur Ji, did sacrifice his life to save Kashmiri Pandits, only because forcing someone to change the religion is against humanity and Sikhism. He did this for the sake of humanity not for the Hindus or Hinduism. Even if it would have been some other religion, his action would have been the same. Sikhism was established to stop the fightings of Hindus & Muslims.

Sikhism was founded by our first Guru, Guru Nanak Dev Ji, legends say when he was born, light had come over the darkness like every other day. His birth was legendary. His father, had later on in his younger years given him money to go something good. Guruji had a very big heart so he had bought food for the homeless and poor that lived on the streets in his village.

Sikhism can said to be founded by all Ten Sikh Gurus with each of them adding an important attribute to the Soul of Sikhism
Guru Nanak dev ji and the other nine Gurus founded Sikhism.
