Pronounce Sikh correctly…

Good morning, Netizens…

Despite what the liocal or national news organizations including Youtube may suggest, I have heard many pronunciations for the word Sikh lately, ranging from seek to sick.

While many organizations are pronouncing it “seek,” we have asked for and received confirmation from the World Sikh Council on the correct pronunciation.

Below is the official statement received from Secretary General of the World Sikh Council - America Region (WSC-AR):

Thank you for your inquiry. The pronunciation of the word “Sikh” is as follows:



“Sikh” pronounced as “Sick” and “Sikhs” pronounced as “Six”.



I hope this helps. Please feel free to contact me for any further questions.
