Overview: Jat Sikh are an ethnoreligious subgroup of the dominant peasant Jat community of north-west India. They trace their history to the 16th century, when a large section of the Majha Jat embraced Sikhism and crystallized as an endogamous community. They are distributed in the states of Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Chandigarh.
