FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - The local Sikh community in Fort Wayne took time to honor, Guru Nanak, the man who founded Sikhism 550 years ago.
Sikhism is the world's fifth-largest religion, and on Sunday people in Fort Wayne outside of the Sikh religion got an inside look at the religion.
Officials at the Illinois Ave said the faith is about helping those in need, believing in one God, and living an honest life.
“A lot of people these days have a misunderstanding. Only 20% of people know who Sikhs are, so this is our effort to let others know we are apart of the community. We are here, our kids are born here, and our businesses are here. We'd like to introduce them to who we are," president Kulwinder Singh said.
There was plenty of food to enjoy as well as a blood drive during the open house.
