Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the founder of Sikhism, believed that people of his time were indulging in fallacies such as the caste sytem and empty rituals. He began to teach a certain set of principles, including equality (between castes, sexes, religions etc.), forgiveness, thoughtful worship and so on. His followers, made up of Hindus, Muslims and Buddhists, became the Sikhs.
