Punjabi and Sikh are known to be two terms that may be confusing to a lot of people. Some even think that these two terms are the same. Punjabi is a group of people who may come from the Punjabi region. Punjabi uses their main language as their first language, but they are familiar with other languages too. The term “Sikh” is used for someone who follows Sikhism, which is a religion that also came from Punjab.

A Sikh is considered to be a disciple of the different spiritual guides. A lot of the male followers of this religion make use of Singh as their last name. The females will use “Kaur” as their last name as an indication that they are followers of this religion. There are some Punjabis that are not Sikh because they follow a different religion.
