Sikh regiment was formed during the British rule under British Indian Army.  Basically, it was constructed so that it could recruit the army persons in such a way so that they are well aware of the regional languages. terrains, places, people and communities. The number of Muslims in the Indian Army was about 30 percent in the British Raj. After six years the number had come down to 2 percent.

Moreover, regiments are based on ethnicity, not religion. Many battalions are organised on the basis of regions and caste. Thus we have the Sikh regiment, the Marathas, the Gorkhas, Rajputana Rifles, Jat, Rajputana, Dogra, The Grenadiers, Kumaon, Bihar or Mahar Regiment. In a pre-independent era, there had been regiments called the Baloch Regiment which is now in Pakistan.

Lieutenant General P M Hariz: PVSM, AVSM, SM, VSM, Currently serving as the General of Southern Command

Air Chief Marshal Idris Hasan Latif: A four-star general rank officer who headed the Indian Air Force in 1980s.
