Q: Why do some Sikhs still use Gill, Sandhu, Sidhu etc. as their last name?
A: Some Sikhs do not completely follow the teaching for Sikh Gurus. Gurus instructed to use Singh and Kaur as the last name for male and female to eliminate the caste system. Sikhs that use Gill, Sandhu, Sidhu extra as their last name and treat Singh and Kaur as their middle name are much interested in preserving their caste. A real Sikh will only use Singh or Kaur as his or her last name.Related Information
