UK Riots

The raging riots of last week have brought shame, disgust and a cauldron of bitterness to the streets of Britain. Morale has been at its lowest for years, and communities and lives have been destroyed by riots. However, a positive has come out of this. The PM, David Cameron, said the riots have brought out “some of the best of Britain’.  We couldn’t agree more when pictures of the British Asian community illuminate and exemplify such graciousness in much needed times.
The Sikh community in Southall took a peaceful stance in protecting their Gurdwara and their local community irrespective of race and religion. Their message was simple equality!
The Malaysian student being insidiously helped during his attack but robbed in the process wants to stay in the UK and feels no hatred for his attackers.  Again another example of Asian diligence!
What about the Islamic community and Sikh community united in the heart of the trouble? This has bought communities closer and inspired people around the UK to do the same.
This is time to restore and celebrate our heritage and the good that we contribute to our country and continue to set a great example and inspire others to do the same. It is evident that British Asians are an important part of this country and want to integrate.
A special tribute to the three young men, whom we refer to as true soldiers, who were brutally killed in a hit-and-run while protecting their country. Haroon Jahan, 21 and brothers Shezad Ali, 30 and Abdul Musavir 31. What amazes us is the dignity of Tariq Jahan, Haroon’s father, whom whilst going through so much grief and pain speaks words of peace ann pacification. Instead of being belligerent, his no name and blame manner is just dividend and testament to the beliefs of a true Muslim.
