I believe that the doctrine of Sikhism is beautiful and superior to any other. I just do no want a beard or turban. Can I still say that i am a Sikh?

Waheguru ji ka khalsa, Waheguru ji ki fateh!

I have been to Denmark myself a couple of years ago and I understand your thinking that having a turban and a beard after 9/11 will give you problems. May these videos help you with your question.
