Naari Chakra hits London screens.

Naari Chakra, a movie on the harsh realities of forced prostitution and gang life in Delhi, was shown in London for the first time since an exclusive screening in Rajpura earlier this month.

The film had definitely fulfilled its primary role: to inform. Although the atmosphere post-viewing was intense, the viewers were excited about the potential for the movie to create public awareness and raise the issue of assaults on women in India. In later interviews it was described as “different to the normal glossy Indian movies, but it had a storyline that captured you”. Others agreed saying that “it showed you the true image of Delhi” and “the movie kept you hooked- you hear about the stories but seeing it makes it real.”

The storyline reveals the severity of the situation in the sub-continent. The down to earth and gritty scenes help to shed light on the fact that our protagonist Sandhya could be any ordinary girl: kidnapped and forced into a vicious cycle of torture and cruelty by people they trust.

Naari Chakra needs more attention by the general public as it’s not afraid to talk about the ordeals that society puts women through, even after they escape from an abusive life. Although we’re geographically so far from the location of this particular issue, it is closer to home than we realise.

In recent weeks the public has been made aware of stories such as the grooming ring in Oxford where 5 men have been arrested and charged for grooming and sexual abuse of girls as young as 12. Although stories like this are uncommon in British media, rape and prostitution in Delhi is common knowledge and a part of everyday life.

Another screening is scheduled for Sunday the 28th of July, “behind the scenes of real life, it really captures you, go out there and watch it.” I can guarantee you will be shocked at the unforgiving nature of underground Delhi.

Channel 4 to air Islamic call to prayer during month of Ramadan

Written by Nabila ( Editor Bombay Hott Radio / London Hott Radio)

Criticism follows the announcement that the television channel will stop shows (for 3 minutes at sunrise and 20 seconds for the rest of the day) to air the call, 5 times a day from the morning of the 9th of July for 30 days. But is the decision just going to provoke those in the public who associate Islam with terrorism?

Analysis of this decision comes down to two points; either the channel has decided that the 2.8 million British Muslims deserve the attention they are getting for this religious month and to urge the rest of the population  to recognise its importance. Or it’s one big publicity stunt. Either way they’ve got the attention of the UKIP leader who says this act will only inflame tensions after the killing of soldier Lee Rigby by so-called terrorists.

Thanks to modern day technology, the vast majority of the population own Sky, Virgin and other cable, so we Muslims already have a choice of plenty of TV channels to tune into for prayer times. So will we even watch channel 4 for the azaan? Probably once out of curiosity and then probably not. Anila Baig, a Muslim writer for the Sun claimed that “channel 4 doesn’t worship Islam, it worships controversy.”  The broadcaster has a reputation for causing a stir; in 2008 they invited the Iran’s president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to deliver a counter message to the Queen’s annual speech.

3 minutes of azaan won’t harm anyone, and indeed in Muslim countries such as Pakistan and Morocco allow church bells so arguably channel 4 should be allowed to do what they want.  However after the events such as the Woolwich murder and the 7/7 bombings, we should be careful not to the fuel the hatred of those who fear Islam such as the EDL and give the likes of Anjem Choudary ammunition for further extremist ramblings.

German neo-Nazi trial starts in Munich protests + people take to the streets

German neo-Nazi trial starts in Munich protests + people take to the streets

Thousands of people have taken to the streets of Munich in memory of 10 alleged murder victims of a neo-Nazi cell, the National Socialist Underground (NSU). A trial begins this week.

Saturday’s demonstrations were called for by an alliance of leftist groups in memory of the NSU’s alleged victims.

The right-wing extremist group is accused of killing 10 people – eight with Turkish heritage, one from Greece and a German policewoman – between 2000 and 2007. The group was only uncovered in 2011. The sole surviving alleged core member, a 38-year-old woman, and four alleged accomplices are facing trial. The case is scheduled to begin next Wednesday.

Organizers of the protest march and rally through Munich said there were up to 10,000 attendees, while a police spokesman put the figure at around 5,500. Both said the gathering had been peaceful.

The march went for about 6 kilometers (3.7 miles) past a number of former Nazi buildings and a memorial to Munich’s Oktoberfest bombing of 1980. On September 26, 1980, a bomb exploded at the festival gates leaving 211 injured and 13 dead, including the bomber himself. The perpetrator was 21-year-old geology student Gundolf Wilfried Koehler, a member of a right-wing extremist group called the Wehrsportgruppe Hoffmann. The group had been banned shortly before the attack.

“We must have zero tolerance for neo-Nazis in this city,” said a survivor of Auschwitz, Esther Bejarano, in a message to the demonstration.

Foreign journalists granted access

On Friday, the German Constitutional Court ruled that Turkish journalists must be granted accreditation for the upcoming trial.

The court ordered the upper regional court (OLG) in Munich to reserve “a suitable number of seats for representatives of foreign media with particular consideration to the victims of the alleged crimes.”

Up until then, the OLG had resisted pressure to allow Turkish or Greek media into the court. There were 50 available places for reporters, and these were allocated on a “first come, first served” basis. No Turkish or Greek media outlets were among the first 50 to apply.

Several politicians, most recently Turkish President Abdullah Gül, had called for this situation to change – given a majority of the victims were of Turkish origin – along with Turkish and German news organizations, journalists’ unions like the DJV and other groups.

The federal government had voiced its “hopes” for a “sensitive” solution to the situation, albeit simultaneously stressing that the decision must lie with the independent German judiciary.

Police erected security barriers in anticipation of possible protests by far-right extremist groups, while hundreds of reporters queued outside the Munich courthouse in the hope of gaining one of the few available seats in the packed courtroom for the start of a trial scheduled to last for more than a year.

The chance discovery of the gang, the National Socialist Underground (NSU), which had gone undetected for more than a decade, has forced Germany to acknowledge it has a more militant and dangerous neo-Nazi fringe than previously thought.

The main defendant is Beate Zschaepe, 38, accused by prosecutor of complicity in the murder of eight Turks, a Greek and a policewoman between 2000 and 2007. If convicted she faces life imprisonment.

Zschaepe is also accused of involvement in at least two bombings and 15 bank robberies carried out by her accomplices Uwe Mundlos and Uwe Boenhardt, who died in an apparent murder-suicide in November 2011. In a break with standard practice the court allowed Zschaepe’s face to be filmed as she entered the court in a dark suit, her arms folded, before turning her back to the cameras.

Four male defendants are accused of assisting the self-styled National Socialist Underground in various ways:

– Ralf Wohlleben, 38, and Carsten Schultze, 33, are accused of being accessories to murder in the killing of the nine men. Prosecutors allege that they supplied the trio with the weapons and silencers used in the killings.

– Andre Eminger, 33, is accused of being an accessory in two of the bank robberies and in the 2004 nail bombing in Cologne’s old town that injured 22 people, four of them seriously. He is also accused of two counts of supporting a terrorist organization.

– Holger Gerlach, 39, is accused of three counts of supporting a terrorist organization.

Like Zschaepe, the co-defendants were known to German authorities before the existence of the self-styled National Socialist Underground came to light. Many in Germany have asked how the country’s well-funded security services, with their network of informants in the far-right scene, could have overlooked the group’s existence for so long. For years, police suspected the immigrant victims of being involved with foreign gangs linked to gambling and drugs.

Families of those killed and survivors of the bomb attacks in particular have said they are hoping not just for justice, but answers to questions such as how the group chose its victims, none of whom were high-profile targets.

One of Zschaepe’s three lawyers has claimed that his client faces “execution by media.”

Wolfgang Stahl told public broadcaster SWR last week that Zschaepe was being portrayed as “evil incarnate, a murderer, a member of a murder gang, a Nazi bride or a Nazi killer” in a way that could prejudice the trial judges.

Her lawyers have said she will remain silent during the lengthy trial. Under German law Zschaepe won’t have to make a plea until the end, though her lawyers have said they will contest the prosecution charges.
