News Item: Documentary Launch - I'lm a Muslim and the BNP Got My Vote

This documentary will reveal how and why public opinion and engagement with the political process in the United Kingdom has changed with more and more people becoming disengaged and apathethic. 

 

The documentary will ask the question: 'How much are Muslims and Ethnic Minorities in Britain contributing to the rise of the BNP?'

 

Designed to be launched on the night before the election, the  documentary aims to inspire action and get  people involved where they can have a voice and CAN tip the scales thereby ensuring that the sacrifices that our elders undertook to make a place for us in society is not undone.

 

Produced by: Tre Azam

 

'We owe it to our elders, our children and ourselves to do what we can to have more of a say in the country we love and live in'  

 

Directed by: Abid Mahi

 

'People all over the world to this day are dying for the right to vote and the right to a fair and democratic society.  Every year, hundreds and thousands of people including Muslim Brits choose not to vote in local and general elections, yet get angered and shocked with the rise of groups such as the BNP'

 

Executive Producers: The Cordoba Foundation

 

'We can not be passive observers as policies and futures are shaped.  Voting is one of the most important means of being at the heart of society'  (Anas Altikriti, CEO)
