I was born into a Sikh family in West Yorkshire, and was surrounded by an extended family who practised their faith whether devoutly or nominally.

I was brought up with a vague belief that all paths led to God and, therefore, the religion that you were born into would be the one that you would stick with because that’s what God had planned for you.

My primary years were spent learning to read parts of the Guru Granth Sahib (the central religious scripture of Sikhism), saying prayers at appointed times, and attending the Gudwara (the Sikh place of worship) regularly with my parents.

It wasn’t until my teenage years that I started to ask questions and challenge the beliefs of Sikhism. For me, there were too many things we practised which couldn’t be justified.
