    Hiya

    my friend has firmed leeds for economics and asked me to find out from tsr what the sikh/Indian population is like in leeds? Are there many Gurdwaras and how far from campus? Also are they accepting of Sikhs that cut their hair etc?


    (she's not being racist btw she just is concerned about 'losing faith' at uni)

    thanks!

    University is a place where you definitely find your kind. She's already firmed Leeds and will probably go if she gets her grades whether or not there are lots of sikhs or none. All in all, the answer is, if she wants to 'keep' her faith, she can. I doubt tsr carries a tabulated number of sikhs and in leeds to be precise. She should be positive to find her kind, which she will

    Leeds is a very diverse city. There is a huge Asian population in most parts of West Yorkshire. Nothing to worry about.

    Hi

    There's a really active Sikh Society at Leeds: http://www.leedsuniversityunion.org....es/faith/sikh/

    I'd also recommend that your friend visit their facebook page, I'm sure there are lots of students who will be able to offer advice : https://www.facebook.com/groups/2217965732/?fref=ts

    Hope that helps

    Amanda
