Many Indians came to Malaysia during the British rule. It is even estimated that about 8% of the current population of Malaysia is of Indian descent. It seems that some of the Indians who came to Malaysia were Sikhs, and when you walk through Malaysian towns, you see men who cover their hair according to the Sikh code. That is right. In contrast to Islam, where only women cover their hair, Sikhs cover their hair regardless of gender. It is difficult to determine whether a woman who covers her hair is a Sikh or a Muslim, but if a man covers his hair, he is definitely a Sikh.
