Eid Mubarak to all our readers MANUFACTURING: David Cameron spoke at the Construction Academy at the Halifax Skills Centre

Prime Minister visits Halifax By Ashley Grint ashley@asianexpress.co.uk

PM recognises Yorkshire’s ‘substantial’ contribution to economic growth

Prime Minister David Cameron paid a visit to a local West Yorkshire Academy earlier this week as he recognised the county’s growing manufacturing contribution. Speaking at the Halifax Skills Centre’s Construction Academy, on Thursday 10th October, the Prime Minister was full of praise for Yorkshire and spoke of how the region’s economy plays a crucial role for the nation. Statistically, the county has the second highest manufacturing contribution to regional Gross Value Added (GVA), making up 15 per cent of Yorkshire and Humber’s total GVA. When asked about the importance of linking the North with the South via the proposed HS2 link, Mr Cameron stressed that it is vital that major cities,

across the whole country, ‘not just the south’, have the most efficient transport links. Speaking to the Asian Express, he said: “I think it is absolutely vital. I want to see an economic recovery and economic growth right across the country, north and south. The great thing about HS2 is that it links together eight of the ten biggest cities in Britain. “We have to build new railway lines because our current ones are running out of capacity so the only choice is do we opt for the traditional line or do we build a high speed one so I think it is only right to build the high speed line. “Obviously there are some people that are disappointed that HS2 doesn’t serve their particular town or city but the point to them which I would make is HS2 will free up a lot of capacity on existing lines so there will be more opportunity to run more services. “If we don’t make these sort of investments we will find that we will run out of that capacity.”

By Ashley Grint ashley@asianexpress.co.uk

As the sun shone down on Leeds last weekend, runners and walkers, young and old, embarked on Roundhay Park to take part in the first ever Give a Gift 5K challenge. Organised by Leeds-based Hamara Centre, the event was a huge success, raising more than £5,000 for the Children’s Heart Unit at Leeds General Infirmary, and Martin House Children’s Hospice. A fantastic turnout resulted in over 200 fundraisers turning up on the day to complete the five-kilometre challenge around the famous park. Competitive runners, fitness fans, joggers, walkers, children and even the disabled all turned up on the day, helping to raise vital funds for the two local causes. Habib Khan, Business Development Manager at the Hamara Centre, helped organise the whole day and was delighted with the turnout. “Our target was to raise a thousand pound for every kilometer so ‘5k for 5k’,” he explained. “The fact we were able to do this and even beat the target is brilliant, we were all overwhelmed by the response from the public. “It was a brilliant day and was more successful than we could have ever predicted. “Initial projections had suggested that around 100 people may turn up, yet the figure was much higher than that on the day with around 250 runners and walkers. “To say the whole event was only thought of six weeks ago, and the fact we had never done anything like this before, the support we received from the local community was exceptional.” One participant who enjoyed the day thoroughly was Naseem Akhtar. Ms Akhtar is the mother of former Bradford University student, Adel Hussain, who was tragically killed in a car accident earlier this year. Speaking on her behalf, her son, Sakib, spoke of how impressed the family were with the whole initiative. He said: “The money was being raised was for two very good causes. It was definitely

Run in the sun raises thousands something Adel would have been involved with as he was always willing to help with anything. “It was quite fitting that the money was being raised for the LGI as well as Adel was having his pharmacy placement there when he was involved in the crash. “I know my Mother enjoyed the whole day and so did my nephews who went along too.” Last weekend’s run was the latest event to be staged by the ‘Give a Gift’ team, following the appeal for gifts and eventual donation of hundreds of presents to the LGI and Martin House during Ramadan. Mr Malik was pleased to be able to offer support to these two local causes again by staging yet another successful event. He said: “All the money raised will go places selected because of their crucial roles in society. “We visited the LGI earlier this year and saw the fantastic work everybody was doing. The care being provided for all the children and their parents in the heart unit was amazing and we have been in close contact with the unit ever

The most recent statistics show that in the first few months of new fortnightly bin collections being introduced, the first residents to receive the new service recycled 42 per cent more waste. The new bin service was introduced to 56,000 homes on the 29th April 2013. An additional 561 tonnes of waste has been recycled in the first twelve weeks of the more frequent green bin collections – significantly more than the weight of a full jumbo jet. Over the same period, 23 per cent less waste was sent to landfill. Councillors will hear that if the remainder of the bin rollout is as successful as the first phase, the council will be on track to save £2.5 million a year; money that can be spent on providing other vital council services. It also means that ambitious recycling targets will be met, making Leeds cleaner and greener.

Open for business

A hugely-anticipated new £28m wellbeing centre for Leeds will open its doors to the public this weekend. Holt Park Active will open to residents on Saturday 12th October and will be the first centre of its kind in the city. The fantastic new wellbeing centre, based on Holtdale Approach, offers a range of flexible spaces for activities and support services that will suit people of all ages. It features a 70-station Bodyline gym, 25-metre pool, hydrotherapy and learning pools, dance studio, café, garden, sports hall, multi-activity rooms, Changing Places facility and meeting / training areas. Aiming to encourage residents of all ages to lead an active lifestyle, the centre will also host a range of activities for older people and those with physical or learning disabilities. The centre will open at 9am with the first 100 customers through the doors being entered into a draw to win a £50 hamper.

Road Safety

Pedestrian safety is to be improved at the junction of Hamme Strasse and Valley Road in Bradford. Work is due to start on 14th October to replace the signal equipment, which is worn out, and to introduce more button controls at the pedestrian crossings. The work is expected to take around five weeks and may lead to some minor traffic disruption during off-peak periods only. Coun Val Slater, Bradford Council’s Executive Member for Planning, Transportation and Highways, said: “We would like to apologise in advance for any delays to traffic but I am sure these will be a very small price to pay for a major improvement in road safety at the junction.”

Amanda Hutton jailed but...

Is 15 years What they say: the correct sentence? Adeeba Malik:

“In terms of the legal angle I think we could debate all day whether 15 years is enough but the thing which is really distressing for me is that nobody noticed that this young child was missing. “I don’t know whether it the services should have picked up on it or some family members but it seems this poor child just slipped under the radar and was eventually rejected on all fronts. “It really was a very upsetting story when I first heard about it. How can a mother, who knows her child’s body is dead in her house, just continue living life as normal?”

By Ashley Grint

ashley@asianexpress.co.uk

The shocking story of a Bradford mother, jailed for 15 years last week on charges of manslaughter by gross negligence, has sparked a huge debate across all sectors of society. 43-year-old Amanda Hutton was sentenced at Bradford Crown Court after the body of her youngest four-yearold child was found ‘mummified’ in her home, two years after the infant had died. Hamzah Khan’s corpse was found in a cot in Hutton's Bradford bedroom in September 2011, and showed signs of being severely malnourished when he died. Judge Roger Thomas QC told the alcoholic mother of eight that the disregard she had shown towards her children was ‘breathtakingly awful’

Nadeem Malik:

He said: “The details of your wicked conduct have been displayed in such awful detail over the past three weeks in the trial. “[These offences] demonstrate a most fundamental and serious breach of any duty that an individual in decent society can owe to others - namely the duty that a parent owes to her or his young children to take proper care of them". Hutton was sentenced on the 4th October, guilty of manslaughter, child neglect to five other children, and preventing the burial of Hamzah’s body.

“15 years is nowhere near enough for the crime she has committed. She’s not only taken a life but also kept it a secret for almost two years. It is wrong in every sense. How she could hide it away, I do not know. She should have got a life sentence. “She has no right to do what she did; it is absolutely appalling and disgusting. I feel sorry for all her children who have been abused by her in the past but hopefully they’ll see the end of it now.”

Adil Hussain:

“It’s absolutely disgusting that a human being can do something like that. Why do people have children if they are not then going to look after them? I believe every child is a blessing from God and has to be loved and cared for. “To give the woman just 15 years is not enough. She has taken the life away from her child and it is not like she didn’t have ways to get help. This country provides child benefits to ensure every infant is catered for, yet she just ignored it so I would like to see her spend the rest of her life behind bars.”

EDUCATION: Head teacher, Colin Willsher (right), and Assistant Head, Graeme Wrightson are delighted with the success of the JLT

A team of seven students at a local secondary school are paving the way for a new style of teaching, and results already show the programme is working. Belle Vue Boys’ school, on Thorn Lane, launched the Junior Leadership Team (JLT) three years ago and with the school continuing to show improvement year on year, it seems the future is bright for the Bradford establishment. The JLT was set up to give the student body a voice and are a mirror image of the senior leadership team. They discuss the same issues as their seniors and have regular meetings with the head of each subject to discuss different ways lessons can be improved to benefit the pupils. More than 550 young people attend the school and sixth form, yet it is a team of just seven, made up from pupils in Years 8 to 11, which make up the JLT. Covering subjects such as English, Mathematics, Science, Music and P.E, plus many more, the team are a self-titled ‘strategic organisation’ whose aim is to, as their slogan says, ‘Expand Excellence’. Chairman and Year 10 pupil, Hamidur Rahman Chowdhury, explained how he became head of the student body and changes which have already been made under the current team’s tenure. He said: “It was Mr Wrightson (assistant head teacher) who actually approached all of us to join the JLT and we all jumped at the opportunity. “Our slogan basically sums up what we are trying to achieve, in that we are expanding excellence from one subject or department to another one. We take good

things which may be happening in English and do it in other lessons so we explode all these positives things across the school. “Each student has been assigned a role for a department, whereby we have a meeting with that subjects head and discuss we can take Hamidur, who is also Subject leader for English, added: “So far we’ve changed our uniforms; they’re completely different from normal ones, as we are the student voice and we feel we need to stand out. “All the feedback has been really good and there is a positive buzz going around the school because of people wanting to join the JLT. “We are currently working on a teaching and learning prospectus – a booklet to show other schools what the JLT is and what the good things about this school are.” The team may only make up a small percentage of the school’s population yet there are now plans to hopefully expand the project to involve almost 50 students. A wider committee could be setup to allow more pupils to get involved with how the school is run and according to head teacher, Mr Colin Willsher, this is something which would only

enhance the current programme. He said: “I have been really impressed with the team and their commitment to it all. How serious they take it is fantastic but most of all there clear sense of what they want to be done differently in the school is very reassuring. “Gone are the days when this school was run by adults for adults. I think this is now a school which is increasingly not only run for young people but also by them as well with them having their decisive say in the way things are run here.” Assistant head teacher, Mr Graeme Wrightson, has been at the school for five years and commutes every day from York. He has played an important part in running the JLT for the past three years and spoke of how the group’s progress is reflective of that of the school’s. “Belle Vue has been progressing every year that I have been here,” he explains. “Validated data from three year average, show that we have gone from 29 per cent attaining A*-C grades in GCSE to 44 per cent. “Having the student voice is absolutely paramount for us. If we put the students at the heart of everything we do we look at the school from their eyes and see what they experience meaning we can then look to progress in the areas which require improvement. “Their work is absolutely crucial in the future success for this school.” He added: “We’ve had other head teachers from other schools visit as part of the Bradford Partnership Review, which is an authority inspection framework. Everyone who has come in contact with our JLT have said they would like to do some work with them as well so I do see it even catching on in other schools.” Current members of the JLT are: Chairman, Hamidur Rahman Chowdhury; Vice-Chairman, Ayaaz Ashraf; Adam Hussain; Hannan Shafique; Uzair Patel; Milan Demetar and Wajahat Ali.

The Council recently announced that work was starting on putting charges into place in these car parks by mid-November, yet plans have now been delayed until 2014.

I believe that our country is a much stronger one because we have people of faith and belief. Britain’s Muslims, Christians, Jews, Sikhs and Hindus; their institutions and their values help give us that strength. “As the year draws to an end we are reminded of the incredible, and continuing contribution made by Britain’s Muslim communities.

gets pulses racing… Middle East model creates a storm at East z East restaurant By Anush Ansari

anush@asianexpress.co.uk

Omar Borkan Al Gala, the famous model, who says he was deported from Saudi Arabia, made his muchanticipated public appearance at East z East restaurant, Blackfriars Street in Manchester on Thursday 3rd October. With his dreamy eyes and chiselled looks, 23-year-old Omar’s story captured headlines across the world turning the model and photographer into a global online sensation, with more than 1.3 million fans on Facebook. With ladies falling over themselves to get a picture of the model, it seemed that his fans are not only the girlies, a few ‘well-groomed’ males also joined in the oogling, including Maz of Bonafide and

Metz & Trix! Organisers of the model’s tour in Manchester, Farheen Hussain and Ashi Asma, said that being acutely aware of the large fanbase he has across Yorkshire, Lancashire and Greater Manchester, they were keen to be involved. A spokesperson for East Z East said: “It was great to have Omar here at the restaurant, and delighted that Omar showed patience in enabling so many people to have their pictures taken with him.” Omar hit headlines, when he was “allegedly”, ejected from the Jenadrivah Heritage and Culture Festival in Riyadh

by the religious police, for fear that women would fall for him. Now living in Vancouver, Omar has become a worldwide sensation. Now, it seems that his story about being deported may have been fake. When Asian Express probed Omar on the matter of his deportation from Saudi Arabia, the model wouldn’t confirm that the news of him being forcibly ejected from the festival was true. Nevertheless, as a one-man publicity machine, Omar has been putting his newly-found fame to good use with celebrity endorsements, PAs, magazine photo-shoots and fashion shows all across the world.

BAN the EDL MP’s call for weekend protests to be stopped

BAN: Bradford East MP, Gerry Sutcliffe (above) and Bradford West MP, George Galloway both want to see the EDL banned from protesting in Bradford

By Ashley Grint ashley@asianexpress.co.uk

With the English Defence League set to march through the city of Bradford this weekend, there are calls from a wide demographic to have the city protests banned. Current law states that you cannot ban a public assembly, or take away a group’s right to freedom of speech. However, after incidents of violence in past demonstrations in Bradford (three years ago), and more recently Hull, leading local figures have voiced their concerns about the threat of repeat actions. Bradford West MP, George Galloway and Bradford East MP, Gerry Sutcliffe, have both stated their disapproval of the far-right group, with the prior releasing a damning statement in regard to the EDL. Mr Galloway said: “The EDL are a scourge who seek to sow division and hatred wherever they go. Time and again, people from ethnic minorities, their places of worship, passersby and even the police have been subject to terrible abuse and even violence from the thugs who come on all their events. “Gerry Sutcliffe and I called on the Police Commissioner and the Chief Constable to ban them from Bradford when they announced they intended to come here. I am very disappointed this is not going to happen and instead the police are allowing them to gather behind City Hall. “The last thing Bradford city centre needs is these people coming from outside Bradford to try and intimidate and abuse

shoppers on a busy Saturday afternoon.” Coun David Green, leader of Bradford Council, also spoke of his disappointment of the groups planned march. He issued the following strongly worded comment: “The EDL’s agenda is abhorrent to the overwhelming majority of Bradfordians and we do not want them in our city or district. “Such protests also cost taxpayers and city centre retailers many hundreds of thousands of pounds, through the public resources needed to manage them and lost business, but we don’t have any legal powers to ban them.

“The EDL’s agenda is abhorrent to the overwhelming majority of Bradfordians and we do not want them in our city.” “We are therefore currently working with the Police, local organisations and businesses to minimise disruption in the city centre and ensure public safety.” Former Leader of the EDL, Tommy Robinson, will not be in attendance on Saturday 12th October after stepping down from the party earlier this week. Mr Robinson, and co-leader, Kevin Carroll, opted to leave the group after they suggested the

party had become too radicalised with Mr Robinson saying he still wants to counter Islamist ideology just ‘not with violence but with better, democratic ideas’. However, despite the exclusion of the former leader, hundreds are still expected to turn up to the demonstration this weekend whilst ant-fascist groups are likely to organise counterdemonstrations. The Bradford Anti-Fascist Group was only set up two weeks ago and already has more than 130 followers on Twitter. A spokesperson for the group told the Asian Express that he hoped Bradfordians would unite against the EDL during Saturday’s demonstrations and stage their own peaceful protest to show that ‘the far right group is only a minority’. A spokesperson for the Bradford Anti-Fascist group said: “We don’t have any leaders and we’re not politically governed. We are just a group of local Bradfordians who have come together to basically show our disapproval of the EDL’s views and their upcoming visit to Bradford. “We’ve been out in Bradford distributing more than 1,500 leaflets whilst dozens and dozens of people were speaking to us about their support of our message. “We are not saying that the event should be banned but rather ‘contained’. If the antifascist groups outnumber the EDL representatives then we hope there will not be any breakaways and therefore no violence in the city. They can do their peaceful march then get on the bus and go back home.”

Completing a challenging 12 hour trek for cancer charity (left) GROUP: Team Bramhope ready to tackle the Three Peaks

(right) PEAK: Trekkers at the top of the last peak, Ingleborough

Team Bramhope complete rigorous 12 hour trek

By Ashley Grint ashley@asianexpress.co.uk

A group of 22 avid fundraisers completed a hilly test like no other last month as they rambled across the Three Peaks challenge. Organised by Leeds-based businessman, Tariq Qadeer, the 25 mile Yorkshire Dales trek was tackled as an attempt to raise funds for local causes, including childhood cancer charity, Candlelighters. With the task of scaling the three mammoth hills in less than 24 hours, the group did exceptionally well to finish in half their

FUNDRAISER: Tariq Qadeer was the organiser of the challenge

allocated time. In preparation of the day, Mr Qadeer had arranged a number of ‘training walks’ yet nothing could quite prepare the ramblers for what they were about to tackle. No representatives on the day had done such a strenuous walk before and despite a lot of aching muscles, every person completed it and helped raise thousands of pounds for the charities. Mr Qadeer is an avid fundraiser, most recently completing the Leeds half marathon in May this year, yet he explained how this latest challenge was a completely new venture for all involved. He said: “We set off walking at 8am in the village of Horton in Ribblesdale and the first peak

we did was Pen-y-Ghent. “All the three peaks are nearly 2400 feet high but the climb basically starts as soon as you come out of the car park and cross the road. “It looked beautiful but it wasn't that easy and we soon started to realise that walking the five-to-six miles to Otley and back wasn't enough preparation for this challenge. “But as a team we all kept each other’s spirits high, supporting each other and working as a group, and eventually we all, as a team, managed to finish the walk in less than 12 hours. “We all completed the challenge without any major injuries or blisters, just stiffness, tiredness, and aches and pains on muscles we didn't even know existed. “It was an amazing feeling, a great sense of achievement that we put ourselves through for so much hardship for two very good causes and now we have done it.” The fundraising group, Team Bramhope, smashed their target of £1,500 and have so far raised more than £2,700, with donations continuing to pour in. If you would like to make a donation to the team please visit w w w. j u s t g i v i n g . c o m / Te a m Bramhope before the end of October.

Thousands flock to City Park for carnival event By Ashley Grint ashley@asianexpress.co.uk

As the sun returned to Bradford for perhaps the last full weekend this year, thousands of sun dwellers embarked on City Park to partake in the third annual Positive Bradford event. Set up in 2011 to celebrate everything good about the city, the day played host to tens of acts from Punjabi dancers to opera singers, jiu-jitsu performers to cheerleaders. Local businesses also had stalls spread across the Park, including the likes of the National Media Museum and a number of local charities. Jane Vincent, co founder and director of Positive Bradford, was thrilled to see the event draw in such a large crowd and explained how the whole initiative came about. “Today has just been absolutely fantastic,” she said. “We actually came up with the idea about two years ago. Saleem [Kader] and I both

have business in Bradford and we heard on the television and the radio that Bradford was the least safe city in the country to visit and we just couldn’t believe it. “We both said look, we need to start doing something. Instead of just taking it, we need to stand up for ourselves. “What we have done is bring communities, together education, businesses, PR, marketing and the arts, to do a showcase of all the great things that are going on in the city and say ‘look everybody, we might not be perfect, no city is, but look at the great things we have got’. “This is the third time we’ve done it and we are absolutely packed, we had a waiting list of people, a multi-cultural stage full of events, it’s great.” Fellow co-founder and director, Saleem Kader, added: “This is Bradford based businesses and individuals telling people what is great about the city. “It is amazing, look at the day today.

the crowd you will see people from all different backgrounds and nationalities just enjoying themselves. “It is all about getting people together and that is why people are here. Let’s forget about all the things we may not have, and focus on the things we have.”

up with friends is also like the news. Then Andleeb shared her experiences growing up and how she loved to read and write, particularly writing ghost stories.She revealed that at the age of 13 she had even written her own book. As she grew older she got the opportunity to work for a mainstream newspaper in Bradford. But as part of her role she did not get the chance to write. Her dream was to provide good quality news with a focus on the communities. Around 12 years ago she met up with a business man who shared her vision of creating a newspaper designed for British Asians, and the rest as they say, is history.

Andleeb’s advice to parents was: “Support your children no matter what their dream is.” The advice to young people was: “If you enjoy doing something really, really go for it. Research the discipline of your passion and find out what it takes to go further and be inspired by others who have been successful. “Work with organisations like the Hamara Centre who can direct you towards the right people to support you.” Andleeb further inspired the youth by sharing with them the immense personalities she’d had the privilege to meet including Her Majesty the Queen, the Prime Minister, Amitabh Bachan, Shahruk Khan, Salmaan Khan, Shilpa Shetty, Kareena Kapoor and many many more.

Changing Bradford Aqib Khan

Book features the immense contributions of immigrants in the city since the 1950s

By Anush Ansari anush@asianexpress.co.uk

A revealing new book is set to challenge commonly held external perceptions of the much-maligned city of Bradford. ‘Changing Bradford: Exploring South Asian Heritage in Bradford’ presents a fresh perspective on the impact made by South Asian people on a city which has become known for racial tension and economic blight. on intergenBased erational interviews, including that of Asian Express Co-Founder and Managing Editor Andleeb Hanif, the publication showcases a broad range of people of South Asian heritage. It features housewives, factory workers, leading entrepreneurs and celebrities from the city and sheds light on the major contribution made to Bradford’s cultural, social and economic vitality since the

1950s. Material for ‘Changing Bradford’ was gathered by young people from Manningham Youth Project and Impressions Gallery’s New Focus group through a series of oral history interviews. The project was led by the Consortia of Ethnic Minority Organisations (COEMO) in partnership with Impressions Gallery, Manningham Youth Project, and West Yorkshire Archive Service (Bradford) and has been supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund. Dr Mohammed Salam, Chief Executive COEMO commented: “Bradford is a place that stirs the emotions. “For those of us who live and work in Bradford, a different place emerges when we talk about the city; a place which is far from the media stereotype, and which reflects the creative passions, community spirit, business acumen and family values of its multicultural population. “We hope that, in a modest way, the publication of ‘Changing

Bradford’ will contribute to the ongoing story of community cohesion and social inclusion in Bradford, opening up a fresh perspective on the city which has a rich and diverse heritage and culture that is deserving of greater recognition.” Fiona Spiers, Head of HLF Yorkshire and the Humber said: “The South Asian community has played a vital role in Bradford’s lively and varied character. By preserving the stories and memories of local community, the Changing Bradford project has helped to shed light on the wonderful tapestry of Bradford’s heritage.” The book will be launched at a special event, to be held in the Studio at Impressions Gallery, on 5th October and will be distributed to libraries, schools and community groups. An accompanying exhibition of photographic portraits from ‘Changing Bradford’ will be displayed in the Studio at Impressions Gallery, Bradford until 2nd November.

A clearer vision Yorkshire surgeon leads way

in groundbreaking eye surgery By Ashley Grint ashley@asianexpress.co.uk

A Consultant Eye Surgeon from Huddersfield is leading the way in his field as he continues to perform pioneering surgeries. Fayyaz Musa, who works at Calderdale Royal Hospital and performs the delicate surgery at Spire Hospital, Elland, is the only surgeon in the North of England currently performing the Modern Intraocular lens (IOL) treatment. The IOL is a clear alternative to laser eye surgery and ideal for people over 50 with short and long-sightedness. For such a small medical device, the intraocular lens is amazing technology. Modern IOLs focus light on the retina, simulating the refractive properties of the natural lens, so that you can enjoy better vision after surgery. The IOL is made from a soft, foldable material that can be implanted through a micro incision, approximately 2.0mm in size. A procedure only Dr Musa

performs in the whole of Yorkshire. Treatments take approximately 15 to 30 minutes, and is pain-free with the use of a local or topical anesthesia. the Huddersfield-based For practitioner, this surgery represents the future of vision treatment and he explained: “I’ve been using the technique for quite a while, since May, and it is a modification of the current way we do lens implants for patients with vision problems. We put in a new type of lens that gives people full range of vision rather than just one. “It has been a huge success but the best way to know is by reading the testimonials from some of the patients themselves. “The procedure has proved successful in ridding people of their glasses and it also prevents and eliminates cataracts. “There is only myself doing the procedure on a regular basis in Yorkshire. There is a place in London and one in Scotland which I believe does them too but as far as I’m aware I’m the only local practitioner.”

“The procedure has proved successful in ridding people of their glasses and it also prevents and eliminates cataracts.” SURGEON: Dr Fayyaz Musa performs the operation at Spire Hospital, Elland

Interview with

YouTube’s celebrity brothers With more than two million YouTube views and 15,000 subscribers, brothers Ali and Shaheen Shahalom truly are internet stars. The cheeky chappies from London host their own channel on the video sharing website and have

attracted visitors from all around the world as they act out their comical sketches. The pair often relate back to their Bengali heritage and have subsequently attracted a large SouthAsian following, yet the

humour in every sketch can tickle anyone, regardless of background. Catching up with the Asian Express, Ali spoke about the brothers rise to fame and how lucky he is to have a sibling like Shaheen.

By Ashley Grint

catering for that demographic. So we also made comedy videos conduced from Bengali culture and these sketches are some of the most viewed videos on our channel. All these things gave us unique selling points, creating a positive and popular response. Q. What do you enjoy most about making your videos? A. For me, making someone laugh or smile brings me so much happiness. To be able to do that to someone through our YouTube videos is such a wonderful feeling. We've also been fortunate enough to support various campaigns and charities through the work we do. To be able to help others in need, through something you love doing is also such a rewarding feeling. Q. What’s it like working with your brother? Sibling rivalry? A. Working with my little brother feels so normal. How we are on-camera is exactly how we are off-camera, which makes filming very comfortable for both of us. I'm fully aware that a lot of siblings

don't get along or have indifferences. However, my little brother and I seem to defy that notion. I'm not quite sure why were so close, but we get along so well and have so much love for each other. There isn't really any rivalry, but there's plenty of teasing and messing around. Q. Finally…What are some of the best comments you have ever received? A. To me every comment or tweet or email means something different. The fact that people think we're even worthy to be watched is a crazy feeling, especially when those figures have now surpassed into the millions. If I had to choose though, I think it's the emotional-driven ones that really strike a chord with me. Every now and then, I’ll receive a message expressing how someone has been through some sort of stress or trauma, but our videos have helped them through it. Just being able to brighten someone's day up for a split moment, is such a euphoric feeling. I'm incredibly grateful for all the nice comments and all the support and I hope people can continue to offer their love and respect.

ashley@asianexpress.co.uk

Q. Why did you decide to make these videos? A. I've always been a creative person. Doing Drama & Theater at GCSE and Alevel gave birth to this passion of playing around with different characters and improvisational acting. Additionally, I used to love making random videos on my phone or my laptop of me and my friends just messing around. When I first discovered YouTube, it seemed like the perfect platform to combine these two interests. Eventually, that's exactly what happened. My little brother and I have always been close, so he naturally became my comedy partner. Q. What was the initial response? A. I think people genuinely liked the idea of two brothers bonding so well and there aren't many sibling partners on YouTube. Furthermore, having a BritishBangladeshi ethnicity, I noticed there wasn't really much content on YouTube

Ginger Ladoo Makes 20 Prep time: 15 minutes This recipe is also delicious using dried chopped apricots; substitute the ginger for the apricot. Ingredients 1tbsp butter or ghee 150g fine semolina 50g ground almonds 1 tsp ground nutmeg 25g crystallized stem ginger, finely chopped Half a 397g can Carnation condensed milk To finish, strands of saffron

Method Heat the butter or ghee in a pan and gently toast the semolina for a few minutes, take off the heat and stir in the remaining ingredients. Roll the mixture into 20 small balls and finish with strands of saffron.

To finish, a sprinkling of toasted desiccated coconut

Method Make a thin syrup, by boiling the sugar and water together for a few minutes, allow to cool then stir in the orange essence. Sift together the dry ingredients into a bowl and stir in enough condensed milk to form a soft dough (approximately half the can). Shape the dough into small sausages approximately 2cm in length then fry gently in a pan of hot oil. You should aim to cook 3-4 jamuns at a time as they expand during cooking. Do not allow the oil to over heat as the jamuns will cook too quickly on the outside but not be cooked through in the middle. Drain the jamuns onto kitchen paper then place into a clean pan with the orange syrup. Serve hot or cold with toasted coconut, to finish.

“We do the best Halal gourmet burgers around” By Ashley Grint ashley@asianexpress.co.uk

W

ith a host of delectable halal gourmet burgers on offer, Leeds based Foodie is fast becoming one of the top eating hotspots in the city. Every order is handmade with only the finest local ingredients, whilst competitive prices ensure you get restaurant quality meals at takeaway costs. Specialising in gourmet burgers, the mini ‘works of art’ are flame grilled, using 100% certified halal meat, minced in-house, before being placed in a fresh bread bun with a host of additional features available. Chicken burgers are also crafted using only halal produce, whilst vegetarians can opt for the healthy bean burger option, which is topped with melted cheddar, spicy jalapenos, chilli habanero jam, salad & mayo. Specialist pizzas are also made from

In a previous article, we looked at the case of Société des Produits Nestlé SA – v- Cadbury UK Ltd (2012), in which the High Court allowed Cadbury’s application to register as a trade mark the particular colour purple that has become associated with their brand. That decision has now been overturned by the Court of Appeal. Under the Trade Marks Act 1994, a trade mark cannot be registered if it does not satisfy certain prescribed requirements, including that it must be a ‘sign’ and be capable of being represented graphically. A trade mark can also not be registered if it is devoid of distinctive character, unless before the date of the application for registration it had in fact acquired a distinctive character as a result of the use made of it. Cadbury had originally applied to register the trade mark and the Intellectual Property Office (“IPO”) had approved the application on the basis of the evidence of distinctiveness acquired through use of the mark. Nestlé opposed the application, but the IPO hearing officer approved the use of the trade mark on the basis of the evidence which proved use of the colour purple on Cadbury’s Dairy Milk since 1914. Nestlé appealed to the High Court on the grounds that the mark was not a sign capable of being represented graphically as required by the Trade Marks Act and so was not registerable as a trade mark. The High Court held that as a matter of EU law, single colours were capable of

scratch within the kitchen, following a unique secret recipe to ensure Foodie brings a touch of Italy to Yorkshire. Owners, Emran and Mr Lee, pride themselves in their food and insist there is nowhere quite like Foodie in the whole of the city. “We make everything ourselves here and you really can taste the difference,” Mr Lee explains. “From the burgers to the pizzas, and right down to the garlic butter for the ciabattas, we do it all in house so everything the customer receives is fresh on the day. “All our food is up to restaurant quality and the feedback we get from our customers is fantastic and we value it so much. “There is something for everybody here and we invite foodies to come down and see for themselves why we have a six star rating on JustEat.” Located on Roundhay Road, the eatery is a stone’s throw from the city centre and whilst delivery is also available from 12pm every day.

being ‘signs’ for the purpose of the trade mark legislation. The Court were satisfied that the colour purple was associated with Cadbury’s chocolate by the public and therefore Cadbury were able to register their trade mark. Nestlé appealed to the Court of Appeal on the basis that the mark applied for by Cadbury did not fulfil the criteria that a trade mark must be a ‘sign’ and be ‘graphically represented’. The Court of Appeal agreed and overturned the decision allowing the registration of the trade mark. The Court found that the trial Judge had erred in principle and had misinterpreted the verbal description of the graphic representation of the mark. Cadbury’s application covered the registration of a shade of colour plus other material and was not therefore an unchanging application of a single colour. In the circumstances, the Court of Appeal was not satisfied that the mark constituted a ‘sign’ that was ‘graphically represented’. The lack of certainty which would be created gave sufficient reason for the decision to be overturned. The Court took the view that allowing registration of the mark would “offend against the principle of fairness by giving a competitive advantage to Cadbury and by putting Nestlé and its other competitors at a disadvantage”. We at Blacks can advise and assist with trade mark applications and any disputes arising.

‘Inadequate’ Muslim Free School reopens Threat of closure if school does not improve conditions Earlier this month a public free school in Derby temporarily closed after being told to take ‘swift action’ about the way the establishment is being run. The Al-Madinah school, opened in September 2012, was reportedly forced to close after preliminary findings from an Ofsted inspection into the school gave it the lowest possible rating. There are claims that female teachers at the school were forced to wear hijabs (a Muslim head scarf) even if they were not Muslim. Other reports suggested that female pupils were looked upon less favourably than their male counterparts and were made to sit at the back of classrooms whilst the boys were at the front. School’s Minister Lord Nash has openly criticised the school for failing to keep pupils safe and provide a good education whilst also discriminating female students and staff. In a letter to the chairwoman of governors, Shazia Parveen, Lord Nash

Michael Gove

ordered the school to provide evidence within one week that there was no discrimination between boys and girls, and alert all staff that they do not have to adhere to cover their hair. The letter read: “The Trust has manifestly breached the conditions of its funding agreement by failing to ensure the safety of children at the school; delivering an unacceptably poor standard of education; discriminating in its policies and procedures towards female staff; and failing to discharge its duties and responsibilities in respect of the governing body. “I will not tolerate breaches of the commitments you gave when entering into the funding agreement.” The letter also noted other actions that the school must take; including satisfying the Government that its curriculum is 'broad and balanced' and that it is welcoming to children of all backgrounds and faiths. Lord Nash warns: “Unless swift action is taken to address these concerns in a comprehensive way I will be compelled to terminate the school's funding agreement.” Shadow education secretary Stephen Twigg said the situation must be made open to the public, adding: “Given the confusion as to why the school has closed, and that pupils may be returning to the school on Monday, I would ask that these matters be clarified urgently in order to reassure the public.” Al-Madinah was one of the Government's flagship free schools after opening last year as part of Education Secretary, Michael Gove’s nationwide programme. Interim principal of the Derbyshire school, Stuart Wilson, said he had not received any complaints from colleagues regarding the dress code, which was made clear to all staff and applicants. "While unfortunate, my decision to close the school related to a short-term health and safety issue that has now been completely resolved and will not reoccur," a statement on the school's website read. “[The school] will be open as normal on Monday,” Mr Wilson added. Ofsted are expected to publish their final report in the next couple of weeks.

Greater Manchester Police appeals for respect during festivities of Eid-ul-Adha

Police in Manchester are appealing for respect from visitors to the city during the Muslim religious holiday of Eid-ul-Adha. During this time there will be an influx of visitors to Rusholme’s famous ‘Curry Mile’ and officers will patrol the area to offer reassurance. Parking in the area will be suspended between 9pm and 6am on Tuesday 15 and Wednesday 16 October. Inspector Dave Nutsey from Greater Manchester Police said: “Our officers will play their part to ensure the communities and those visiting are kept safe and that there is minimal traffic disruption to the area. “I would like to remind people coming to the city that any form of crime, antisocial behaviour and public disorder will not be tolerated and that we will take robust action against those participating in such actions. “Eid is a joyous occasion and an important date in the Muslim calendar and celebrations should reflect this. Anyone wishing to bring or cause problems is asked to stay away. “The Force has been working with the support of the Rusholme Business Association, the Council of Mosques and Manchester City Council to ensure safe and trouble-free celebrations. We have also been working with our colleagues in neighbouring forces to ensure that those travelling into the city from other areas do so for the right reasons so that everyone can enjoy the festivities. “Finally I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our Muslim community ‘Eid Mubarak’ and those visitors coming to Manchester will be given a warm welcome.” The restaurants of Rusholme’s ‘Curry Mile’ will remain open during Eid. Car parks are located behind the Shere Khan restaurant (off Walmer Street), on Thurloe Street and Hathersage Road. If any members of the community would like to discuss any issues in relation to Eid, either before during or after the event, please call the Longsight Neighbourhood Policing Team on 0161 856 4223 or email longsight@gmp.police.uk.

End to foreign language support for driving tests

From April next year driving test candidates will no longer be able to use foreign language voiceovers and interpreters on test. The move, announced today by Road Safety Minister Robert Goodwill, follows a public consultation. Currently people whose first language is not English or Welsh can request prerecorded voiceovers for the computerbased car and motorcycle theory tests in 19 different foreign languages. Candidates can also use approved interpreters on theory tests and practical tests. Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin said: “We want to make sure that all drivers have the right skills to use our roads safely and responsibly. One area where we can help ensure this is by requiring all test candidates to take the test in English or Welsh, the national languages. “This will help to ensure that all new drivers will be able to understand traffic updates or emergency information when they pass their test. It will also help us to reduce the risk of fraud by stopping interpreters from indicating the correct answers to theory test questions.” The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) consulted earlier this year on a series of proposals reviewing the level of foreign language support available to candidates. This was in response to concerns about potential road safety implications and the risk of fraud, as well as the cost of providing translations. The response to the consultation was positive with more than 70% of respondents supporting the withdrawal of foreign language voiceovers and interpreters on tests. The consultation received close to 2000 responses.

Unity of Faiths Festival

UNITED: Leaders from a host of religious and cultural backgrounds came together

FLAME: A Torch of Unity procession involved more than 100 young adults

More than 25,000 partake in London celebration By Ashley Grint

ashley@asianexpress.co.uk

Leaders from the world of sport, politics and religion came together last week to mark the third annual Unity of Faiths Festival in London. Organised by The Unity of Faiths Foundation (TUFF), individuals from all backgrounds were present to recognise the importance of inter-community dialogue and acceptance as the bedrock of community cohesion and understanding. In attendance were an array of dignitaries and public figures, including: the equivalent of the Sikh Pope who was in Britain for his first public visit, Akal Takht Jathedaar ji. A unique ‘Torch of Unity’ procession began on the 27th September, featuring 100 young adults from London schools, travelling on open-top Unity buses through Southall. During the lighting of the ‘Torch of Unity’, Dr Sheik Ramzy, Chair of the Muslim Council of Britain,

acknowledged the event for its originality. He said: “This is a unique and special organisation to bring every culture together all over the world. Let’s be united forever.” The former Grand Mufti of Palestine, Sheikh Abdel Salam Mraish, added: “Everybody must be true to each other. I am proud to be with such a young group of people who are embracing unity of faiths.” Following the torch ceremony, audiences were captivated by a series of keynote addresses by several VIPs who had flown to London especially for the launch. Dr. Shamender Talwar said: “Unity of Faiths is a journey we all need to be a part of. During the first festival three years ago we were surprised how positive the reaction was from the general public. “We had postmen, fireman, lawyers and doctors all turn up and celebrate unity in the community. Six weeks later the London riots began and Southall, which was one of the areas considered to be hit hardest was not affected.

“The festival grew from 8,000 to 25,000 which is testament to the fact that communities endorse the principles of TUFF.” The landmark event concluded with the third annual Unity of Faith Festival two days later with tens of thousands present. The festival provided London's multi-cultural community from all backgrounds and age groups, an opportunity to connect, break the barriers of misunderstanding and prejudice against a backdrop of free entertainment, food, drinks and social engagement. The festival built up a groundswell of support to the message of ‘unity’. Sports icon and England bowler, Monty Panesar, joined hands with the unity team, interacting with groups of people who had congregated to see the cricketer. Commenting on the atmosphere at the Festival, Panesar said: “Thank you for your positive energy and kind words. I hope to inspire the youth of the next generation”

Avina Shah together with members of Eastern Illusion give up their busy schedules for Sewa Day 2013 Sunday 6th October 2013 saw many thousands of warm-hearted people across the world participating in various projects to perform ‘Sewa’ and experience the joy of giving in its truest sense. Avina Shah together with Eastern Illusion Artistes Kishan Amin and Hemina Shah all gave up time from their busy schedules to volunteer this year on Sewa Day by choosing to ‘Bring a little joy to others’ as their main assignment. Avina Shah conducted her Sewa with the NHSF Leicester Hindu Society at The Grange Nursing & Residential Home in Leicester by spending time talking and assisting carers with the residents. “It was an amazing experience spending time with the residents and I’m already looking forward to my next visit. We had some great conversations and felt we really bonded! I hope that the concept of Sewa Day spreads widely and that we all make a point of giving more of our time to make a positive difference to someone elses happiness.” Avina Shah (Artist) Gujarati residents at the Shakti Nursing Home in Wembley were mesmerised by Bhajans and golden classic songs performed live by Hemina Shah. Residents and their visiting families sang along together and participated in a joyful afternoon

full of music and entertainment. Kishan Amin, also joined by Sewa Day Chairman Arup Ganguly gave up their time assisting the Guru Nanak Darbar Gurdwara community in helping out sorting clothes and food for the homeless. Rupesh Patel (Manager), who arranged the members projects for Sewa Day says “on behalf of Eastern Illusion, we would like to congratulate the Sewa Day team who have been working extremely hard not only organising so many projects but also getting hundreds of volunteers involved. Everyone involved from children to adults have openhandedly bought a bundle of joy to others by simply giving up their time for this charitable cause. Myself and the EI Team are delighted to have participated this year, and the Sewa Day team can count on our continuous future support. Congratulations to all those that got involved." Eastern Illusion have committed to support future Sewa Day events by organising projects, encouraging more volunteers to get involved. Next year Sewa Day is scheduled to take place on Sunday 5th October 2014.

A bold new exhibition, which illustrates Arab women’s love of sport, is getting some serious attention and breaking down cultural and gender stereotypes. Commissioned by Qatar Museums Authority, ‘Hey’Ya: Arab Women in Sport’, which runs until October 13th at the National Football Museum in Manchester, is an exhibition by the internationally renowned photographer Brigitte Lacombe and documentary maker Marian Lacombe. Hey’Ya, the title of the exhibition, is Arabic for Let’s Go reflecting the athletes’ energy and enthusiasm. The exhibition features a series of large-scale photographs of Arab sportswomen, from beginners to Olympians, from 20 different Arab countries, shown alongside videos by Marian Lacombe. The exhibition was conceived by Qatar Museums Authority to encourage more Arab girls to participate in sports and comes to Manchester as part of the Qatar UK 2013 Year of Culture celebrations. The project was shot over a period of seven month starting in December 2011 when the Arab Games were held in Doha. With the support of the Qatar Olympic and Sports Museum, Brigitte and Marian Lacombe were able to set up their own outdoor studio, working side by side, capturing the athletes practicing different sports ranging from Tae Kwon Do to swimming and equestrian. Amongst them were a number of Qatari girls, one of them Nada

Independent research published on 10th October shows that 60 per cent support the cap even if it means that those affected have to take a job, regardless of the pay. The Ipsos MORI report shows public attitudes towards the benefit cap and is published following the completion of its national rollout last month.

It finds that around three quarters of the public support the benefit cap in principle, yet 58 per cent think that politicians needed to do more to reduce the welfare bill. 50 per cent of us think that benefits are too generous and only 11 per cent think the benefits system is working effectively. The benefit cap limits are set at £500 a week for couples, with or without children, and lone parent households, and at £350 a week for households of a single adult with no children. The cap is in place nationwide for existing appropriate claimants and all new claims are subject to the cap.

Honouring British curry chefs By Anush Ansari anush@asianexpress.co.uk

It certainly proved to be a marathon evening at the Lancaster Hotel, London, where guests gathered to see 44 of Britain’s best curry chefs receive awards. Guests included secretary of state Eric Pickles, renowned economist Lord Meghnad Desai and Lord Karan Bilimoria, founder of Cobra Beer and one of the award’s longest standing sponsors. Culinary celebrities attending the event included Michelin star chefs Dominic Chapman and Atul Kochhar, the first Indian chef to win a star. It marked the culmination of a busy year for Dominic who has generously given his time to champion the cause of Britain’s curry chefs including travelling to Kolkata earlier this year for the Taste of Britain Curry Festival. The festival, which was held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel Kolkata, India, proved a great success with diners and gained huge media interest at home and abroad as the British took India’s national dish home. Lord Bilimoria admitted he ‘was in awe of what chefs do’ and applauded them for producing ‘some of the most complex and exotic food in the world at the cheapest prices.’

Lord Bilimoria also talked about the importance of integrity in a world full of uncertainty and the fact that the curry industry’s high standards were allowing it to shake of the vestiges of recession. A recurring theme among the speakers was the need for greater female representation at the awards. Lord Desai, who had flown back from Australia earlier in the day, amusingly put it in perspective, saying: “It always amuses me that when men cook they are called chefs and when women cook they are called women. What we need to see is more female chefs winning awards.”

stars Week starting 11/10/13 ARIES

March 21st - April 20th

April 21st - May 21th

Strengthen close ties of affection, sort out emotional differences and proffer the olive branch to your loved one. You often sabotage your emotional interests by keeping too much inside. However, your inner pressure builds up and manifests as irrational moods that others find hard to understand.

GEMINI

May 22nd - June 21st

You know you have no choice but to streamline and re-assess your priorities before haphazardly saying yes to everything that smells like a potential opportunity. Try to create a balance between expansion and conservation. Jupiter in your sign makes you feel invincible, base your decisions on facts.

CANCER

SNEH JOSHI

Don't take short-cuts in legal or official matters. It will be only too easy to feel exasperated by bureaucracy but you won't be doing yourself any favours if you lose your cool. This is a fine time for you to get away from the mundane realities of life and relax. Some of you will probably go abroad.

TAURUS

The Curry Chef Awards duly responded in the shape of Ashrafun Nessa Begum from Cutler’s Spice restaurant, Sheffield, and Fahmida Chowdhury of Taj Cuisine, Lower Stoke, Kent, who both became the first women to reach the podium. It was something of a family affair for Ashrafun whose son, Allam Shah Ullah, is the participants of three previous Taste of Britain Curry Festival. Ashrafun said: “I am absolutely delighted. We’ve always been very proud of our food here at the Cutler’s Spice and it’s a great honour to be named the best curry chef in my area.”

June 22nd - July 22st

Relationships are experiencing major transformations - those with shaky foundations should be extra careful. Financially, you have everything going for you. A good time to put lucrative plans into action and reap the benefits of sound investments. Be prudent and do not fritter away your good fortune.

LEO

Telephone: 0208 518 5500 July 23st - August 23rd

At home, be at your diplomatic best and try not to tread on anyone's toes. Passions will run from hot to cold, and relationships may suffer. Even the most strong-willed Leos will be more open to compromise to keep the peace. Plan your spending and set sensible budgets.

VIRGO

August 24th - September 23rd

An inspiring boost to matters of communication but make sure your curiosity on a range of topics does not lead to a scattering of mental energy. With a surge of energy and enthusiasm, this is a favourable time to make fresh starts. Personal relationships may be more intense.

November 23rd - December 21st

The prevailing cosmic pattern packs a powerful punch early this week. Having such potent energies, make you feel positive and confident in whatever you do. This is not the time to hold back or underestimate your potential if you wish to further an important aim. Some of you will try to get away from the routine chores.

CAPRICORN

December 22nd - January 20th

As social life is likely to gather a pleasant momentum throughout this week, this is bound to present a better prospect, not only for striking up new friendships but also romantic encounters. This is going to be one of those times when insignificant events give rise to unexpected developments especially regarding work and health.

September 24th - October 23rd

The focus is on finances this week, but that doesn’t mean you should worry yourself sick. Rather, it is about finding new and improved ways to boost your earnings potential. It’s fine to consider several options but don’t get caught up in indecision. Schedule networking opportunities later this week.

SCORPIO

AQUARIUS

January 21st - February 19th

Work is going to play a great part for some of you who are widening their horizons. An important time to build too, as Saturn can be very severe and cold especially regarding relationships. Regardless of the limits, you have the capacity to turn the course of your life in a more fulfilling direction.

October 24th - November 22nd

Responsibility is your key word, especially at work. Set your own goals, rather than trying to meet those set by someone else. Your ability to manage what you have on your plate earns respect from others around you. You will benefit in every way if you learn to self-discipline and pace yourself wisely.

PISCES

February 20th - March 20th

‘Open to talks’ In a rare interview, Pakistani Taliban leader Hakimullah Mehsud has told the BBC that the extremist group are open to ‘serious talks’ with the government. The decision comes after Nawaz Sharif was elected Prime Minister in May this year and announced he was willing to open ‘unconditional talks’. Mehsud controls more than 30 militant groups in tribal areas and has seen thousands of people killed since taking over as chief of the country’s Taliban in 2009. In his time as leader, he has masterminded the campaign against Nato convoys in Khyber tribal region and Peshawar, emerged as a prominent fighter after reputedly leading a raid that captured 300 soldiers, and has a $5million FBI bounty on his head. Speaking to the BBC, Mehsud said: “We believe in serious talks but the government has taken no steps to approach us. The government needs to sit with us, and then we will present our conditions. “The proper way to do it is that if the government appoints

a formal team, and they sit with us, and we discuss our respective positions.” When pressed on why previous peace initiatives had failed, Mehsud blamed the government. He said: “The government of Pakistan bombs innocent tribal people due to the pressure of America... Drone strikes conducted by Americans were [backed] by Pakistan. Then the Americans pressed Pakistan to start ground operations in these areas, and Pakistan complied. “So the government is responsible for past failures.” Reports had also suggested the Taliban chief was responsible for recent attacks in public places, yet he was quick to deny the claims, adding: “We consider the safety of Muslims, of scholars, of mosques and madrassas as our sacred duty. “As for explosions which cause damage to the life and property of Muslims, we have denied any link in the past, we deny any link today. “We have targeted those who are with the infidels, America, and we will continue to target them.”

18 demonstrators stage unique ‘locked in’ protest against animal cruelty

Caged like animals Locked in cages and holding signs that read, “Try to Relate to Their Fate – Ban Animal Circuses”, employees of The Body Shop and members of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India protested in Mumbai last week against the use of animals in circuses. The action marks World Animal Day, held on 4th October, and comes

in the wake of PETA India's ninemonth investigation of 16 circuses across India that revealed rampant abuse of elephants, horses, camels, dogs, birds and other animals. PETA India and employees of The Body Shop are calling on the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) to follow the lead of Bolivia, Cyprus, Greece and Austria by

introducing legislation to enact a ban on the use of animals in circuses. “The Body Shop has always refused to test products on animals. When we learned from PETA [India] that animals in circuses are chained, beaten and denied everything that's natural and important to them – all for a lifetime of cheap tricks – we knew we had to act,” explained The Body Shop employee Prakash Kamat. “It's time that the [Indian] government banned the archaic use of animals in circuses, and parents should know that if their kids love animals, the last place they should take them to is the circus. “The Body Shop has inculcated its values in us, and we're proud to support PETA [India] in this lifesaving initiative under our employees' volunteering programme, Aashe." PETA India's investigation by experienced veterinarians who are also qualified as animal welfare assessors, along with other inspectors recognised as Honorary Animal Welfare Officers by the Animal Welfare Board of India (AWBI), found a host of unlawful abuse and neglect which had been aimed at the animals. Abuse included using weapons on the animals, such as nail-studded sticks, whips, clubs and ankuses (iron

hooks with spear-like ends), as well as the employment of untrained staff - An underage child was employed by one circus to shoe a horse, which could cause permanent damage to the animal. A host of animals had also died from inadequate care or had simply gone ‘missing’; Elephants, camels, dogs and other animals showed signs of severe psychological distress, including constant swaying, circling and even self-mutilation; and Birds

had their wings crudely cut to prevent them from flying. PETA India points out that the Rambo Circus has held shows without the use of animals at the Prithvi Theatre in Mumbai and that the Great Champion Circus enjoys success without using animals in performances. One of the most internationally renowned and popular circuses in the world, Cirque du Soleil, also uses only willing human performers.

CAMPAIGNER: Malala Yousafzai

Further recognition set for courageous teen? By Ashley Grint ashley@asianexpress.co.uk

On Friday 11th October, the Nobel committee will announce the 2013 recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, and there is one name which seems to be on everybody’s lips; Malala Yousafzai. At just 14-years-old, the Pakistani activist was shot in the head by Taliban forces in her home country after daring to campaign for greater rights to education. Malala was on her way home in the back of a small pick-up truck used to transport children when a masked man stopped the truck before another shot her in the head with a pistol.

recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, she would be the youngest ever winner, half the age of any previous nominee. Dr Fiona Reynolds, of Birmingham Children’s Hospital, was visiting Pakistan at the time of Malala’s shooting and helped perform the life saving surgery. She believes the teenager would be the erfect recipient for this year’s prestguous accolade. “She's very deserving, she has brought the world's attention to very important issues,” said Reynolds. “I’m biased, I think she deserves it, but it's up to the Nobel Peace Prize committee to decide.” Malala is one of two frontrunners for the Prize alongside Congolese gynecologist and rape victim activist Dr. Denis Mukwege

prime minister's guards before they seized Mr Zeidan and led him out at around 5.15am (local time). According to witnesses, the prime minister offered no resistance while he was being led away. Two of his guards were also taken and were beaten up but later released. Protesters had reportedly opened fire at the building where Mr Zeidan was being held to demand his release. A government official and a security source told the Reuters news agency he was now ‘free’. Mr Zeidan was being detained at the interior ministry's anti-crime department, said an official, and he was reported to be in ‘good health and being treated well’.

A horrific assault could have been fatal if it were not for the quick actions of Pakistan’s medical practitioners, which helped stabilise the youngster so she could be flown to England for treatment. Since then, the now 16-year-old has made a full recovery and travels the world campaigning for a right to education for all children, no matter the age, race or gender. She has gone on to speak at the United Nations, been named one of Time magazine's 100 Most Influential people, and, last month, won both the International Children's Peace Prize and Amnesty International’s highest honor, the Ambassador of Conscience Award.

Pulling Out US suspend aid following Morsi trial

The US State Department has confirmed reports that certain aid will be withdrawn from Egypt in response to the overthrow of the country’s first elected President in June. Mohammed Morsi was forced out of his position as the country’s leader by the country’s army, and since then an interim government, spearheaded by the military, has been in control. Mr Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood party refused to work with the military which it says staged a coup and sabotaged Egypt's democratic gains after a revolt toppled autocratic President, Hosni Mubarak, in 2011. With the former President set to go on trial in November accused of inciting the killings of protesters, identical charges to his predecessor.

In all, the US would normally assure Egypt $1.55 billion in support, including $1.3 billion in military aid. However these latest announced cuts are likely to cut that amount significantly. The cuts include 10 Apache helicopters, at a cost of approximately $500 million, F-16 fighter jets, M1A1 tank kits and Harpoon anti-ship missiles. US officials also refused to transfer $260 million in cash assistance to the government until they can be assured that progress is being made towards electing a new inclusive government, through a fair and free election State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said. “The United States continues to support a democratic transition and oppose violence as a means of resolving differences

WITHHELD: 10 Apache Helicopters will be amongst the inventory recalled

within Egypt. “We will continue to review the decisions regarding our assistance periodically and will continue to work with the interim government to help it move toward our shared

goals in an atmosphere free of violence and intimidation.” However, the decision was criticised by Egyptian officials who feel the response is too extreme. Foreign ministry spokesman, Badr

Abdelatty, told an Egyptian radio station: “The decision was wrong. Egypt will not surrender to American pressure and is continuing its path towards democracy as set by the roadmap.”

Entertainment THE LATEST ENTERTAINMENT AND CELEBRITY NEWS FROM BOLLYWOOD & HOLLYWOOD

“I’m not taken seriously” 36-year-old Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat rues that directors do not take her seriously because of her glamorous image. She says that the saucy characters she has played over the years have given her fame, success and liberation, but she claims that at the same time this image has worked against her. Mallika has said that she’s bored with the ‘sexy siren roles’ that continue to get pushed her way from movie bosses. The actress is dismayed at being “stereotyped” and says that she’s never been given a challenging role in the movies at all. Mallika even showed interest in jumping at the chance to play the part of a supporting role, but one which would test her acting skills. She commented: "I don't just want to look pretty in films, do songs, have two-three dialogues... I am looking forward to doing interesting and challenging roles.” The actress feels there's a dearth of roles for actresses, even though Indian cinema is changing, and said: “Very few Bollywood films have meaty roles for actresses. Films like 'The Dirty Picture', 'Kahaani' come once or twice a year. Majority of films are commercial masala where heroines have (to be content with) glamorous roles, singing songs."

Entertainment

On Friday 11th October, Huggy’s Gym in Bradford will stage a unique production which focuses on young Muslim female boxers and the issues they face in society. Organised by the Common Wealth Theatre, the play hopes to provide audiences with an uplifting story about how any demographic can be successful in any field if they put their mind to it. National Champion, Ambreen Sadiq, and University Championships winner, Saira Tabasum, were both involved in the process of creating the production as both boxers were interviewed on real life issues they have tackled in the chosen career. Common Wealth spent one week working in Huggy’s Gym, with a filmmaker, choreographer, set designer, sound artist, boxers, boxing coaches and a cast of upcoming young South Asian performers. Aisha Zia wrote the production and explained where the whole idea came from, as well as her hopes for the “We wanted to write about young Muslim girls as this story is particularly close to my heart, and I always wanted to give voice to a generation of girls who might not necessarily speak out. “I wanted to explore themes of identity and belonging but in an unexpected and surprising way. I want to challenge the audience’s

perceptions of race and religion, and try to change social stereotypes. Common Wealth make political theatre and aren't afraid to challenge the status quo. We work with communities, gather stories and respond to people’s needs, working from the ground up.” Director, Evie Menning, also explained how the subject of Muslim female boxers is something which must be discussed further if the “People have been very positive, very supportive and we feel there is a genuine interest in the piece, which will make for exciting developments. “People are always surprised when we tell them Ambreen Sadiq is 19 years old, from Keighley, Bradford, and is the National Champion, we’re hoping that this piece will examine where that surprise comes from and what our expectations are of young Muslim females. “We’re aiming to make a positive piece that celebrates achievements and challenges stereotypes and I think people are very receptive to that as so much of what emerges from Bradford is usually negative.” A sneak peak of the play will be available at Huggy’s Gym, Bradford, BD5 7DU, at 7pm on the 11th October.

UT KO EA BR Blitz-i ready to release his album after success of ‘Oh Meri Nina’ and ‘Girl Like That’

After the phenomenal response from the debut single ‘Oh Meri Nina’ last year, Blitzi, speaks to Asian Express about the muchanticipated release his debut album, ‘Breakout’. Having sold his much-prized car to finance his first single ‘Oh Meri Nina’, the track brought huge interest not only nationally but also internationally, with the single reaching number eight on the iTunes world charts. It was quite a shock to him and the team that the single had done well especially since it was his first release, it looked like the hard work and dedication paid off. Blitz-i was greatly humbled by what he had achieved in such a short amount of time. This work ethic has seen Blitz-i and his

assembled team set up the label ‘Superkick Records’. Enabling him to create a firm foundation upon which to build from. This foundation has allowed Blitz-i to continue perfecting the sound of the album ‘Breakout’. Before the album is released he put his skills back into test with a new single called ‘Girl Like That’, which features a new talented artist known as Kami Kane. ‘Girl Like That’ again shocked the team with its top 10 reach on both Itunes and Official BBC Asian Download Charts. Blitz-i said: “Firstly I’d like to thank everyone who supported me with the last two singles, especially my fans who have been instrumental in my achievements to date, I’d also like to thank all the media outlets, radio stations, TV stations, the team at ‘Superkick Records’ and everybody else that has supported me. I thank you all gratefully and lets do this again...” “I can’t stress how important fans are to supporting not only me but all artists by buying the music, I hope you guys will support my new single and buy legally from iTunes so we can bring you more. Keep following as we’re working on big projects coming soon. Love to all”

PG 12A FILM: Arrambam DIRECTED BY: Vishnuvardhan Kulasekaran GENRE: Action STAR CAST: Nayantara, Arya, Mahesh Manjrekar, Ajith Kumar, Taapsee Pann

RELEASE DATE : 04/10/13

Famed Tamil filmmaker Vishnuvardhan directs Indian superstar Ajith in this action-packed and stylish thriller. Director Vishnuvardhan has won acclaim for highly successful movies such as Arinthum Ariyamalum and Pattiyal and now he brings his flair to this gripping story of a system hacker, with Ajith taking the lead role. It's Ajith's second collaboration with the director following hit 2007 gangster thriller Billa. An exciting array of top names makes up the supporting cast, including Arya, Nayanthara and Taapsee Pannu, while esteemed filmmaker Mahesh Manjrekar plays the villain.

Ranbir is all set to surprise his fans as he goes Besharam with his bhangra moves. After setting the screen ablaze with popular anthems, like 'Bachana Ae Haseeno’ and ‘Badtameez Dil’, this time Ranbir Kapoor shakes his leg bhangra style this autumn. In Besharam Ranbir Kapoor plays ‘Babli’, a street smart, fun-loving, football-playing car mechanic who has seen the dark side of life as one of India’s many desolate orphan children. The worldly-wise Babli learnt at a young age how to survive the trauma of having no one to care for him. He grew up fast in a Delhi orphanage and has devoted his life to helping and mentoring the other children in the shelter. The cheeky and fiercely independent Babli takes as his life motto: "Na Samaan Ka Moh, Na Apmaan ka Bhay", translated as "No Want for Respect, No Fear of Disrespect". The film unfolds his many ‘Besharam’ moments with hilarious consequences.

Jaguar to debut state-of-the-art C-X75 prototype

Hybrid DEBUT: Jaguars’ C-X75 will be showcased in Birmingham next month

The Jaguar C-X75, the prototype state-of-art hybrid supercar, will make its Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show debut, as the centrepiece of the Jaguar Classic Parts stand. Held at Birmingham’s NEC from 15th to 17th November, the stand, in collaboration with Jaguar Heritage, will boast an impressive selection of classic and modern Jaguars. Jaguar unveiled the C-X75 concept, which has been provided by Jaguar Cars, in 2010 and has marked the beginning of a new

chapter in innovation and technological advancement. The C-X75 can achieve 100mph from standstill in less than six seconds and can continue on to a top speed of 220mph. Considering these impressive performance statistics, the C-X75 is capable of producing less than 89g of CO2/pkm and will even run with zero emissions for up to 60km. Jaguar Classic Parts welcome visitors to come to their stand in Hall 20 to see this “ground-braking” hybrid vehicle. This year’s stand also includes some historical vehicles from the Jaguar Heritage collection. The cars on display will include: XK120, EType, XJ40, XJS, X300, XKR and XFR Rocketsports, all outstanding Jaguars from different eras. A further

supercar

highlight to this years’ stand in Hall 20 will be a wide range of genuine parts available on display. Jaguar Classic Parts are clearly stating that its commitment to the preservation of classic Jaguar cars has never been stronger. Jaguar Classic Parts will be providing a limited number of vouchers enabling Jaguar owners to receive a discount on their next order. Jaguar Classic Parts technical advisers will be on hand to answer parts queries and give expert advice. The Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, held at Birmingham’s NEC from 15th to 17th November, is the UK’s biggest classic motoring celebration. Spanning eleven halls, visitors can enjoy an estimated 1,500 cars and 350 motorcycles on display, ranging from the rare and exciting to prewar and retro classics, the sublime to the ridiculous, and many more.

TURBO Life may be moving at a snail’s pace, but Chevrolet’s latest movie partner – Turbo, certainly isn’t. The American brand has teamed up with DreamWorks Animation to celebrate the UK launch of Turbo, the tale of an unassuming little snail who wants to go faster. In the movie, Turbo gets sucked into the supercharger of a Chevrolet Camaro ZL-1 drag racer, fusing his DNA with nitrous oxide. The next day, he wakes up vested with the power of incredible speed and accuracy, as well as some of the characteristics of an actual car, such as eyes that light up like headlights, and a shell that blinks red like taillights and makes car sounds and music from a radio. To celebrate the launch of the film, Chevrolet is participating in a series of pre-screenings of the new animation at cinemas across the country during the first two weekends of October, taking place in Cambridge, Livingston, Oxford, Poole, Portsmouth, Stockton and Wolverhampton. The events will be used by Chevrolet dealers as a customer relationship incentive. "Turbo is one of the most anticipated films of the year, and we couldn't be more excited about this collaboration," said Tim Mahoney, Chief Marketing Officer,

American brand teams up with Dreamworks

Chevrolet. "Millions of future drivers will be inspired by Turbo to realise their dreams both big and small." DreamWorks Animation's Chief Marketing Officer Anne Globe said: "In a film about a slow snail who dreams of being fast, who better than Chevrolet to give our hero his first taste of high-speed driving on the open road? Our relationship with Chevrolet is a natural fit that adds a layer of authenticity to this wild ride of a story." Turbo’s first appearance in Europe occurred in September, where he shared space with a Camaro and a Corvette on the Chevrolet stand at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The film itself opens to the public on October 18th in movie theatres across the UK, and will be supported by an on-screen Chevrolet cinema advertising campaign.

LINEUP: Toller FC play in the Bradford Sunday Alliance

Toller FC By Ashley Grint ashley@asianexpress.co.uk

In 2012, Bradford-resident Mohammed Khan took it upon himself to set up a local football team with nothing other than family support and a passion for the game. Fast forward just over one year and the 26-year-old is now manager of Toller FC 2013 Bradford Sunday Alliance Third Division runner-ups. A remarkable feat for a club whose changing room is a mile away from the ground and pitch remains a struggle to play on following council cuts. However, the father of two, football enthusiast is delighted with the way his club has evolved in such a short period of time and already has lofty ambitions for the future of the Bradford outfit. “Last year was fantastic as we got promoted into the second division of such a hard league at our first time of asking,” Mohammed explains. “We are currently fourth in Division Two and pushing for promotion already after five games which shows that the club is certainly on the right path.” He added: “I set up the club using money from my own pocket just wanting to help out some local young lads and get them off the streets. I had no investors and it is sometimes hard to fund things on my own, such as kits, nets and balls, but I just try and make the team as enjoyable and fun for the players as I possibly can.” The self-employed manager told how the side constantly has more than 25-30 players turn up to every training session with new players always welcomed to come down for trials. The family run club, which includes Mohammed’s brother, Waqas Khan, as club secretary, is already

One man’s passion for football MANAGER: Family man Mohammed Khan, founded the club last year

becoming an important part of the community, helping football 75 per cent of the squad is made up from Asian players whilst the remaining quarter is a split between black and white players. With such cultural diversity in the club, Mohammed explains how the side is an excellent example of a cohesive mixture of races. He said: “It is great to see so many young Asian lads progressing in the sport; we haven’t really had anything like it before. “Some of our players are different class. We have one, Irfan Khan, who has represented Pakistan before, playing for the side as well as a number of local lads. “We also actually had a pre-season friendly against a Pakistan XI and managed a 1-1 draw against them which again shows how far this club has already come in such a short space of time.” With such interest in the club from local footballers, there are also potential plans to hopefully start a girl’s side and a youth team in upcoming seasons.

However, for the time being, a second promotion in as many years would be the perfect gift for Mr Toller FC…Mohammed Khan.

Vanzie Leeds Met student fights his way to victory

A Leeds Metropolitan University student hopeful is celebrating after defeating the captain of the Irish Olympic boxing team to win his category in the prestigious Celtic Box Cup in Dungarvan, Ireland last weekend. Ashley Vanzie, a final year BSc (Hons) Sport, Physical Activity & Health student from Dewsbury, took home both the prize for the 81kg open class category and the best boxer of the tournament award, becoming the number three-ranked light heavyweight amateur boxer in England in the process. Last year, the Rio 2016 Olympic hopeful reached the semi-finals of both the ABA (Amateur Boxing Association) Championships and the national championships. Forced to step down from the finals of the national championships with a chest infection, Vanzie became determined to succeed and entered into the prestigious international Haringey Box Cup, winning gold and being voted boxer of the tournament by the Boxing News. Spurred on by his success, and despite hearing that English fighters ‘couldn't compete abroad’, according to official regulations, Ashley decided to put his name down for the Celtic Box Cup and was thrilled to find out that the ban had been lifted, days before the competition.

CHAMPION: Ashley Vanzie receives his award from Tournament Director Gerry O’Mahony

Retired! Force India crash out of Korean Grand Prix

“I hurriedly called around trying to organise funding to go as it was such short notice.” Speaking about his preparations, he said: “I hurriedly called around trying to organise funding to go as it was such short notice. “I got to Ireland, weighed in and was told that the captain of the Olympic boxing team, Darren O'Neil, was in my weight class. And that I was drawn against him. When they announced me the winner (albeit by split decision), I jumped with joy.” The next day, the Yorkshireman was paired against Dean Laing, who is in the top ten of his category in England, defeating him in every round to be crowned the unanimous winner. Speaking about his future aspirations, Vanzie added: “At the end of the day, I was informed that I had been voted boxer of the tournament out of 300 fighters so I was slightly overwhelmed at this point. “To think that I very nearly didn't go due to lack of funding. My eyes are now set firmly on winning this year's ABAs and getting on to the GB squad for Rio 2016.” DNF: Paul Di Resta crashed out on lap 50

Sahara Force India was out of luck in Korea as both Paul Di Resta and Adrian Sutil retired from the Korean Grand Prix. A braking error saw Sutil crash out on lap 24, taking Mark Webber with him, whilst Di Resta’s race was finished with just five laps to go, after coming off the track. Speaking after the race, Sutil said: “I was quite unlucky on the first lap because after Massa spun everybody headed for the inside and somebody hit me on the side of my front wing. “The damage was not too bad but I still had to pit for a new one. As the race went on I was able to fight back quite well and after

the safety car I was in P12 and not planning to pit again. “At the restart I lost the rear of the car under braking for turn three. I really don’t know why because I was not braking late and the car just snapped. I hit Webber so I apologise for ending his race. It’s a disappointing end to the race because I believe there was still a chance of a point.” Di Resta added: “The performance in the race was not where we wanted it to be and the front tyres were wearing out too quickly. So we need to have a rethink ahead of Suzuka and go there determined to have a clean race.”

Celebrating Asians in Football

PROUD: Wigan Athletic scout, Irfan Kawri, was awarded the ‘Inspiration’ honour

BACK PAGE STORY CONTINUED

Also successful on the night was Liverpool Academy youngster Yan Dhanda, who was the recipient of the ‘Up and Coming’ accolade. Beating off competition from Brighton and Hove Albion, as well as West Bromwich Albion, Dhanda is the first player of Indian origin to play for the Merseyside club. The 14-year-old arrived at the club's Kirkby Academy in July and thanked his family for their support, following him across the country. Upon receiving the honour he said: “Liverpool is one of the biggest clubs in the world and my aim is to take every opportunity to progress to the first team and do my family proud, they have always been there for me. “My father has only missed one game since I was about seven years old. It's down to the support of my family that I am where I am now. “These awards are really important for Asian football and it's good that so many role models are being recognised.” Also successful on the night was Wigan Athletic scout Irfan Kawri, who walked away with one of the top awards, the ‘Inspiration’ honour. Kawri’s dedication to the sport has to be admired. Not only does he put in long hours in his role scouting and writing reports on Wigan’s opponents across the country, he is also a coach and physical education teacher. The football enthusiast is also credited for his work with Liverpool FC’s medical chief Dr. Zaf Iqbal, co-ordinating PE projects. “I’m very fortunate to have this career, but I’ve had to make a lot of sacrifices,” said Kawri. “I’ve been able to do it thanks to the support of my wife and parents. I started at Academy level in 2008 and now I’m doing my UEFA B coaching course at Macclesfield Football Club. “I was a trainee [footballer] at Rochdale, but that didn’t work
