As sources say Guru Nanak was disgusted with the superstition in Hinduism and the Stricture & violence in Islamism.....thatz why he propagated his sermons in a different way which his followers named as Khalsa ( the holy one) it was never a deliberate attempt to propagate a new religion.....

GuruNanak Devji did not wanted to start any religion he preached for truth and banished all the fake rituals that were there that time in religions..so anyone can follow his teachings and teachings of all the sikh gurus.its just like giving an identity to the followers..like a student of IIT is called as IITian..names are different but it teaches same thing in different way...anyone can become a sikh on thier own will..

Originally he did not intend to start any religion. Neither he supported Hinduism nor Islam.He taught people the method of devotional practices n meditation.He was wearing unconventional dresses.In due course people identified him with shikism.

I don't think so.
By late Guru Govind Singh is accredited to have compiled Guru-granth Saheb.
March 31[probably] 1699 is the commencing date from Patna.
But why so many new religions.What is not there in Vedas !
