There are a few Sikhs, who mix Sanatani (mainstream Hindu) views with Sikh thoughts. For them, Sikhism is a part of ‘Sanatana Dharma’ or Hinduism. In many of the present Sikh circles, these Sikhs are called Sanatani Sikhs. Sanatani Sikhs are a sect within the Sikh community who follow the teachings of the ten Sikh Gurus and revere the Guru Granth Sahib as their holy scripture. The term “Sanatani” refers to those who adhere to the eternal principles of Sikhism.

Sanatani Sikhs:

Sanatani Sikhs should not be confused with those people who show disrespect for Sri Guru Granth Sahib or other Sikh Gurus. Sanatani Sikhs show deep respect for Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. They accept it as their Guru. At the same time, they also believe in the Vedas and the Puranas. Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji has been accepted as the fifth Veda.

The Sikh Gurus, starting with Guru Nanak Dev Ji and ending with Guru Gobind Singh Ji, played a pivotal role in shaping the Sikh faith. They preached the message of equality, service to humanity, and devotion to God. Each Guru contributed to the development and expansion of Sikhism, leaving behind a rich legacy for future generations. The ‘Rashtriya Sikh Sangat’ preaches Sanatani Sikh views among the common Sikhs.These Sikhs believe that Sikhism was intended to protect “Hindu Dharma” from invaders and that Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji created the Khalsa Panth, especially for this task. Some Nihangs in India practice Sanatani rituals, such as smoking bhangs.

Sanatani Sikhs are a traditionalist faction of Sikhs who formed during the Singh Sabha Movement in 1873. The term was coined by Harjot Oberoi. 

Sanatani Sikhs believe that Sikhism is part of Hinduism, or Sanatana Dharma. They campaign for a Dharmic interpretation that accepts a wide range of beliefs from Hinduism. Some Sanatani Sikhs believe they follow the “old” Sikhism, which they claim is the true one. 

Sanatan Sikhs mix Sanatani (mainstream Hindu) views with Sikh thoughts. The Sanatan Dharm Gazette used lines from the Guru Granth Sahib to show that Guru Nanak and his successors believed in reincarnation and acknowledged the Vedas.
I am not able to collect enough information about Sanatani Sikhs,and above details are not enough.Very difficult to Understand that they believe in Vedas and SGGS, as there is philosophical difference bitween the two.
