FAVOURITES: Married couple, Imran - a Muslim and Sukhvinder - a Sikh, came up against adversity as their families opposed them being together

 

The pair from Leeds have an intriguing back story as the childhood sweethearts faced disapproval since their relationship began.

Imran, a Muslim and Sukhvinder, a Sikh come up against adversity as their families opposed them being together.

The pair met when they were just eight-years-old and at the start of their relationship Imran, who is from a ‘strict Muslim family’ and Sukhvinder, who was ‘raised in a strict Sikh family’, had to keep their romance secret as such a  relationship was frowned upon.

Having to sneak out to see each other, they were married by 17 in an Islamic ceremony.

Before entering the house, entrepreneur Imran said he wanted the UK to see what a modern Muslim looks like.

He also stated: “I want to show my children how to be a good person. I want to be an example to the next generation as well and let them know it’s not all about social media.”

Whereas Sukhvinder said: I want to meet the world and I want the world to meet me too! Life is an amazing gift and if you aren’t on TV then who are you?’

Sukhvinder is the Managing Director and Inventor for her own company and feels mums are the unsung heroes of the world.
