After much consideration I felt very much duty bound and obliged to pick up my pen following Paul lewis’ groundbreaking expose on the activities of members of the Tablighi Jamaat. (The Guardian- 19.08.06 http://www.guardian.co.uk/terrorism/story/0,,1853800,00.html )

Crazy cycle from London to Oxford

E-mail Print PDF



Emdad Rahman

The Appeal aims to raise £150,000 towards building an orphanage in Bangladesh
 
The London to Oxford Crazy Cycle Run took place on Sunday 10th August. The biggest Cycle Challenge organised by Families Relief. The route was 60 miles long and took participants uphill and downhill through busy roads, roundabouts and miles of country lanes which looked almost uncharted!  
 
Project Manager Jakir Ahmed said; "This was the most amazing and challenging experience of my life and the people who took part. We were blessed with good weather mostly with the odd showers, and a great team who never gave up even though their legs and bodies gave up on them! This challenge was organised to raise funds to build an orphanage in Bangladesh to give orphans a chance to have a decent life, an opportunity for them to stand on their own two feet, when they are adults".    
 
Participant Usayd Yunis who raised over £2000 in sponsorship, said; "I was excited and nervous to begin, started well but half way through, I was almost on the verge of giving up. But the thought of helping some orphans in a poor country, just made me carry on. What they have to go through daily to survive, is far more breathtaking than 60 miles of cycling even for me!"
 
The team who took part are: Usyad Yuni a student from Manchester; Hamza Izziedeen a student from Lampeter in Wales; Maruf Uddin a graduate from London and Mizan Baksh an entrepreneur from London.

E-mail Print PDF

The Book
Ayesha's Rainbow by Rabina Khan is about a young an angelic seven year old Bangladeshi girl, growing up in an inner-London City borough, who meets her elderly neighbour. Mrs. Peters, a white woman has lived in the East End all of her life. She is lonely and averse to change, especially towards accepting people of a different culture from her own. A most unlikely, yet beautiful friendship develops between them, bringing their two contrasting families together, crossing religious, cultural and racial barriers. Only Graham Peters, the youngest sibling, wants to take a different path, with a view to joining a racist political party. When Mrs. Peters is attacked in her home, a chain of emotions unfolds, affecting both families and the rest of the community. A time for questioning loyalties, divisions, prejudices and friendship begins, in order to discover what really happened to Mrs. Peters and more importantly, why?

E-mail Print PDF

London Tigers a Bangladeshi/Muslim community led organisation from
Westminster are a semi professional football team playing as Kingsbury
London Tigers FC in the Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division,
creating opportunities for young people in the inner city areas to play at
the highest level of football.
 


A memorable event is being held on
Sunday 17th August
2008
for a 12 noon kick off at The Kingsbury Town FC Stadium, Silver
Jubillee Park, Townsend Lane, Kingsbury London NW9.
 
This event is also a great celebration as London Tigers are the
first Asian Football team in
West London to take part in the prestigious
football competition in the country. This has been one of the dreams of
the Tigers to develop talented players from multi cultural faith
background. All of the players in our football team has been developed
over the years through our youth systems.
 
London Tigers are a very unique football club as our diversified,
representing over 40 nationalities within their 20 teams from under 8 to
senior level. Our semi pro team brings together all minorities in our
society, promoting community cohesion. With all the hype on knive crimes
amongst young people and the lack community cohesion,
London
tigers are
providing the alternate for our challenging youths of today…getting them
involved in sports.
 
This event is a proud moment for the players, as they come from a
disadvantaged background, with no professional support. It is chance of
lifetime and for many a dream come true. Therefore the Tigers work in football
goes beyond sports.... they pride themselves in teaching their players life
skills and skills which they can take beyond the football realm.

Betelnutters paradise

We uncover the biggest Bangladeshi habit – Paan!

EMDAD RAHMAN

Bangladeshis have always been a colony of betelnut addicts. ‘My’ extensive and ‘paranormal’ research studies show that betelnut sessions help the secretion of our brains opiates, drugging us often to the point of excitement or euphoria.

Our obsession with individuality and individual freedom, accompanied by loneliness, is nothing but a major source of stress – related brain opiates.
