Respect your elders, please By Mohamed Ansar BEAUMONT Court residential home in Mount Pleasant, Batley, has been a victim for several years of anti-social behaviour by local youths. Now it’s escalated to the point of damage being caused to the building. Jeanette West, the warden at the home told Awaaz: “The residents feel intimidated, its like they have no respect for the elders”, she added, ”On Monday afternoon we had a major power cut here and obviously because of the youths at the back, and the doors release after a while because there’s no power to them, we had to go tie them with strings because we were scared”. The trouble begins around about 4:30pm most days with Asian teenage boys 15 years and above hanging out at the chosen as it is a blind spot. Some six or seven gather and smoke cigarettes as well as

Ethnic groups anger at council over budget snub By Ismail Mulla LOCAL members of ethnic minority groups from across Kirklees directed their anger at the council for not consulting with them in the lead up to this year’s budget. At a meeting at Al Hikmah centre in Batley organised by Just West Yorkshire – a civil liberties and racial justice group, angry residents demanded to be directly addressed by the council leader and chief executive. It was said that council leader Mehboob Khan had been asked to attend but declined the invitation and that Kirklees’ chief executive Adrian Lythgo had also been invited but arranged to send although this claim has been refuted by Kirklees. Saied Laher, of the South Asian Consortium Kirklees said: “We need to meet Adrian Lythgo and the councillors. As a community that’s what we need to be asking for and it’s not an option, they have to come.” The council set its budget on 22 February and Kirklees faces a reduction of 27% in spend

Maintaining and signposting of public rights of way was also saved from proposed cuts last night.

Conservatives. Conservative leader, Cllr Robert Light said: “I welcome this compromise. With these amendments, my group is happy to allow the budget to be passed.” 600 council jobs will go in the coming year thanks to the cuts. Cllr Khan said: “We term decisions to achieve a better long term future.” 2,000 council jobs are expected to go by 2014.

Tories want two way Kirklees By Ismail Mulla

“Labour and Lib Dem councillors have to realise that there is huge support amongst people who would not usually vote Conservative for the council to be split.”

THE Tories have put forward radical proposals to split Kirklees council in two. At a joint press conference with the Calderdale Conservatives, the Kirklees Conservative group announced the proposals to split Kirklees in to two separate councils. A Dewsbury and Spen Valley council in the north consisting of ten wards, taking in Dewsbury, Batley, Birstall, Heckmondwike, Cleckheaton and

But Calderdale Labour leader, Cllr Tim Swift wasn’t as welcoming, he said: “These Conservative proposals read like a desperate attempt to dream up something new without any thought to the long-term consequences. If we were to adopt them, we could wave goodbye to any chance of shaping our own future.

Colne and Holme Valleys, Denby Dale and Kirkburton.

“Of course we should work together with Kirklees where it makes sense. But our interests are not identical.”

Calderdale will continue to operate as a metropolitan council but service would be shared between it and the two Kirklees councils. Though Calderdale would lose 15 councillors under the proposals as the Tories say they would like to see equal sized electoral wards. Kirklees Conservative Leader Cllr Robert Light said: “These

proposals have been under development for some time and we know that they are well founded and deliverable. We have an opportunity to rid the area of the blight that is Kirklees and deliver better services with greater accountability. “The Kirklees Conservative

Not surprisingly the plans were welcomed by Dewsbury MP Simon Reevell, who said: “Kirklees has become too big, cumbersome and distant. The proposals to split the council will mean that in the future, local views will be heard.

The Tories think that once implemented the new systems could provide savings of up to £2.5m per year, and they believe that the split could take place by 2014 if approved. Tell us what you think via Twitter @AwaazMultimedia or info@awaaznews.com

10 YEARS WITHOUT CHARGE Shaker Aamer the last Briton in Guantanamo By Mohamed Ansar

without leaving marks".

AN Islamic charity worker being detained in Guantanamo Bay for 10 years without charge pleads with his captors: "Please torture me in the old way ... Here they destroy people mentally and physically without leaving marks".

In another extract from 9 August 2008, he says: "My sweetheart, yes I lost a lot of weight, yes I have a lot of sickness, yes I got short sight, yes my bones are aching, yes I got white hair, yes I got old, but ... my heart is still young, my mind still strong, stronger than ever."

Shaker Aamer, the last British citizen detained in Guantanamo Bay, in February 2012 passed 10 years at the notorious prison. The 45 year old father of four was sold by Afghan villagers for a sum of $5000 to the security forces in 2001. After being tortured at the infamous Bagram prison in Afghanistan, according to Mr Aamer, he was transferred to Guantanamo Bay on 13 February 2002. In a letter to his wife, released through The Independent, he says "Please torture me in the old way ... Here they destroy people mentally and physically

Aamer’s father-in-law Saeed Siddique, speaking on behalf of the family, recently explained to Amnesty International the impact his ten years at Guantánamo has had on them: "It is a great injustice for the family. The family has been torn apart for ten years. Shaker has been detained without being charged for ten years. What kind of justice is this?” The Bush administration in June 2007 cleared Mr Aamer for release when they acknowledged it had no evidence against him, but is still detained more than four years later. Some believe his continued detention is due to his protest on human rights at the camp, serving several months in isolation recently for speaking

family, almost without hope.

Foreign Secretary William Hague raised talks with Hillary Clinton last December regarding the continued imprisonment of Mr Aamer, but with US elections on the horizon it looks unlikely a release is likely to be swift, according to sources.

“Britain needs to put its foot down with the Americans. We know that the Foreign Secretary William Hague has already called for Shaker’s release. He

Depression : An illness, not a curse

In ten years, only one of the 779 detainees held at the base has been transferred to the USA for prosecution in an ordinary federal court. Others have faced unfair trials by military commission. The administration is currently intending to seek the death penalty against six of the detainees at such trials.

Presently there are still 171 inmates still at the camp, 167 held without a trial. Amnesty is calling for an end to tanamo with an online petition to Barack Obama (www.amnesty.org.uk/guantan amo). Presently there are still 171 inmates still at the camp, 167 held without a trial.

Fight for your faith By Sana Abubacar FAITH MATTERS, a nongovernmental Organisation have launched a new and innovative programme which aims to monitor and map all anti-Muslim attacks made across the UK. The programme is called Measuring Anti Muslim Attacks (MAMA) and it will create a database of areas in the UK that attacks while providing support for victims. This programme works by allowing victims of anti-Muslim hate crimes to log on to the website and issue a report that detail the incident. “By reporting attacks, we can create a database that will help to tackle anti-Muslim crime throughout the UK and we may then map the areas in which antiMuslim attacks are most frequent. We want to reduce faith-based crime and our service can provide Muslims with a place where they may speak freely and openly.” explained Faith Matters founder and director, Fiyaz Mughal. He also added, “We also work with partners that can provide support services to victims of anti-Muslim attacks if required. This is a further

attack as a result of their faith

added value service that the MAMA project provides.” Faith Matters has made the programme widely accessible where victims or witnesses of attacks can contact MAMA by telephone, text message, email, Facebook and Twitter. The victim is asked to select from six possible categories of attack including: extreme violence, assault, damage and desecration of property,

threats, abusive behaviour and anti- Muslim literature. The victim also needs to provide details of the incident and also the location of the attack to be successfully mapped. According to a speech made by Baroness Warsi at the Holy See there is a rising militant secularism that is threatening faith identity and that faith should have a seat at the table in public life.

Volunteers help pilgrims get jabbed up By Ismail Mulla THE Council of British Hajjis (CBH) held a vaccination clinic for locals going on the Islamic pilgrimage of Umrah at the Al-Hikmah centre on Track Road in Batley. For £25 pilgrims could get a meningococcal vaccination which is a mandatory visa requirement. The clinic was run with the help of a large army of volunteers. The CEO and founder of CBH, Rashid Mogradia said: “I would say there are about 20 [volunteers] today at this clinic. This is the beauty of the service that we provide it’s all volunteer based, it’s all community based. “Doctors give up their time; nurses give up their time because it’s a dedication to a cause for the almighty Allah at the end of the day.

PS Vita 3G Review

Political Pulse THE debate amongst music enthusiasts is never ending when it comes to songs from the past and the present. Our very own Jameel B and Ismail Mulla look to the past The Clash- Washington Bullets (1980) When you talk of The Clash, they are in a league of their own. Forget the Sex Pistols nihilism this was the true spirit of punk. Why Washington Bullets? Well the socialist rockers turned their guns on both sides of the political spectrum highlighting the hypocrisy of both extremes. The best song from Sandinista! But such is the pedigree of the Clash that you could argue the case for any pre ‘Cut the Crap’ number. NWA – Express yourself Speaking the truth may make some people nervous, learning something new maybe dangerous but learning from a experience can be positive.

By Mohsin Mulla ON June 6th 2011, Sony announced the much rumoured PSP replacement console, known as the PS Vita (Vita is Latin for Life) at the yearly games convention, E3 in Los Angeles. The console launched on February 22nd delays of nearly up to a year. Below is my review of the console after a few days of usage. Hardware On unboxing the PS Vita 3G console, the hardware looks and feels extremely striking and sturdy and also somewhat heavy (no pun intended). The weight of the console is extremely noticeable when compared to the PSP. Holding it in the hand feels very natural, especially with the two plastic cut outs holding the device. The PS Vita is louder than its predecessor, the PSP, due to the Vita having stereo speakers. However, if you plan on using this as a replacement to an iPod speaker dock or something, don’t bother. The quality is poor but comparable to the PSP, which is to be expected from a portable games console.

Sony has added a completely new addition to the PS Vita in terms of controls, the rear touchpad. It’s basically a touchscreen with no screen and at the back.

The Specials – Ghost Town (1981) A song about urban decay as deindustrialisation took place across various cities in the UK, at the height of Thatcherism. This song pretty much sums up the gloomy atmosphere that many urban areas faced. Full of atmosphere this is an iconic number.

The rear touchpad is useful in some games, but hard to get used to due to its inverted controls. There were also times that the rear touchpad did not register unnatural at times when using the touchcontrol settings. Display Sony has given the Vita an OLED capacitive touch screen which looks amazing in terms of its colours. All the colours are extremely vibrant, and the blacks are times to see whether you are looking at the bezel or the screen. The resolution of the display is 960*554 at 220 pixels per inch and screen size is 5 inches. In comparison to an iPod touch, the pixel density isn’t as good, and this is noticeable in games where you can see rough edges.

It was an experience. tsunami that leaves two girls, Ahalya and Sita, orphaned with no place to go. They are quickly thrust into the hellish world of the sex trade, separated and sold. When an attorney, Thomas Clarke, learns of their predicament he sets out on a heart-stopping journey to bring the two girls back together and save his marriage. Thrilling, fast-paced and gripping, this vivid novel kept me on the edge constantly. I threw my hands in the air at each triumph and almost threw it across the room at the frustrations of each failure, such was the power of the message the author was getting across. The main theme of the novel is the sex trade, but there is no graphic content. Instead sorrow, shame and the surging emotions of the girls, gives readers an takes place throughout the globe. It plunges the reader into a world of suspense that leaves a mark long after the last page is turned.

This novel, though happens, and by the last word on the last page, I had passed tears and happiness ran in my veins, with a resolve to help stop this devastating crime. ‘A Walk Across The Sun’ was not just a the strength of love, family and culture, contrasting with the bleak despair of the sex trade. It dealt with the real novel that will change how you view

Interview: Corban Addison Corban Addison, author of ‘A Walk Across The Sun’, kindly took the time to answer some of our questions about his novel. Where did you get the idea for ‘A Walk Across The Sun’? I am an attorney by training, and I have always had an interest in international human rights. I became familiar with school, and it disturbed me deeply to learn that slavery, which I thought had died in the 19th century, was not only alive and well but the fastest growing criminal industry on the globe, an industry that no only involved exploitative labour but also (and quite voluminously) the forced prostitution of women and children in almost every country. The idea for the book itself was my wife's. Three and a half years ago, she came to me and said that I should gave it some thought and realized the with it. Why did you choose to write a novel to tackle this issue? I cite many of them in my Author’s Note at the back of the book. There is also a substantial volume of reportage available in government, academic, and journalistic channels on the subject. All of this was critical to my research, but the more I read and talked to people,

particularly high-brow academic research, has a limited audience. Most prior interest in the subject. But a novel that stands on its own as a compelling human story can reach readers across the spectrum, from people interested in the subject matter to people who have never heard of it before.

MAC’s Girl about town lipstick is the perfect colour to wear during summer to brighten up your complexion and mood, especially if you feel you want to be more daring with colour. Marketed as a amplified crème with cool undertones, the intense fuchsia shade will look great on almost any skin tone. Although some of you may be put off by the £13.50 price tag, it’s worth remembering the colour pay-off is great and a little will go a long way. For extra impact, wear with natural eye makeup and minimal blush to really help your lips stand out.

HARVANA, a ‘good karma’ face glow that has made it to Benefits top sellers list. This face powder is definitely in trend for summer! With its four divine shades (lucky shell, divine peach, heavenly rose & berry delight) the face powder blends to give a gorgeous girly flush. However at a price of £23.50 it may be slightly over budget for most girls but the naturalistic finish and the cute easy to carry packaging makes this blush a recommended buy!

What Aditi had to say... Q: What was it like working with Ali Zafar? Ali is very cute! I have always been an Ali Zafar fan. When I met him, I found him way cooler than I thought he was. It was great fun working with someone as philosophical, sorted, and at the same time as naughty as Ali.

Q: Did you have any voice training for your singing As a music director, Ali is a task master. Frankly, I used to get scared of him. He used to constantly remind me to practice my song. In case he thought I was slacking, he used to ask me to come on Skype to rehearse! He’s a chilled out actor, but as a music director he is completely the opposite, very stern and slightly serious. Q: Do you enjoy singing? I don't like talking about my love for singing. Once I started humming when Ali [Zafar] and producer Goldie [Behl] were talking about a few songs, and they said, 'Hey, you can sing!'. They convinced me to sing two tracks for the movie - a beautiful love song and a naughty one. Ali, who composed the music and even

It feels particularly cubersome when in the middle of a frantic battle. Whereas Rachel provides a pleasant change of pace, using ninpo attacks is a jarring experience and players would probably feel safer using standard combat tactics instead.

Famous author visits school By Mohamed Ansar Hyrstmount Junior School as part of the school’s year of the book. The author of over two hundred books spent time explaining to the children how to gather the information as well as explaining how books are printed, produced and distributed. We asked John when he decided to become a writer “I started writing when I was their age, when I was in which is in Wolverhampton, two teachers encouraged me to read lots, and because I was reading lots that was giving me the idea that maybe one day if everything worked out I could perhaps write books”. Huzaifah Kabil, a pupil from the school told us how

What do you say to a cow that crosses in front of your car? Mooo-ve over. What was the pirate movie rated? aRRRgh! Did you hear about the two silkworms who had a race? It ended in a tie. THE MOST BOOKS WRITTEN IN ONE YEAR BY AN INDIVIDUAL WAS BY RYUHO OKAWA WHO WROTE 52 BOOKS. THE MOST PEOPLE TO WRITE A STORY WERE FROM THE YOU ME SUPPORT FOUNDATION. IT TOOK 838 PEOPLE.

John’s latest exciting book celebrates the Queens Diamond Jubilee by taking a look at her Majesties life he found the experience: “I was really interested to hear how his books are printed by a massive machine” Whilst another pupil Sehrish Banaras said “I thought it was amazing to hear how long it took to write a book. I’d like to be an author too.” We asked John what advice he would give to the children who wished to become authors, “Quite simple never give up,” he said, “and never take no for an answer. Somebody somewhere is going to slam the door in their face and say it isn’t your turn on the matter, they should think to themselves maybe not there, maybe I’ll go somewhere else and that other person will say I like it we’ll go with it. Never give up! Read lots, write lots.”

The Cooking Corner

21 March brings us the start of Spring, so as the weather begins to warm up enjoy making these recipes.

Moroccan BBQ Lamb Burgers

Strawberry Macaroon Recipe

Ingredients • 800g lean lamb mince • Small bunch spring onions, • 1 tsp smoked paprika • 11/2 tsp coriander seeds, roughly crushed (if you can't get seeds, use 1/2 tsp ground coriander) • Fresh mint leaves, to garnish

Makes about 25: Takes 30 minutes to make, plus cooling

Method Serves 4 : Ready in 35 minutes

1. Put the mince into a large bowl. Add the spring onions, paprika and coriander and season well. Mix together using your hands, then shape into 12 mini burgers. Pop on to a large plate, cover and set aside.

2. Preheat a griddle pan over a high heat. Cook burgers in 2 batches on the hot griddle for about 5 minutes, turning once, until golden all over. Set aside.

3. Thread 3 burgers on to a wooden skewer and rest 1 on each tomato salad. Serve with salad, a generous dollop of hummus, a toasted pitta and a few mint leaves scattered over

Moroccan Chickpea Soup For the chilli and garlic pitta crisps • 4 pitta bread, cut into wedges • 50 ml olive oil • 2 cloves garlic, crushed or grated • 1/2 red chilli, deseeded and chopped • pinches sea salt For the soup • 3 tbsp olive oil • 2 stalks celery, chopped • 1 onion, chopped • 2 1/2 tsp freshly ground toasted cumin • pinches sugar • 400 g tinned chickpeas, drained • 600 ml vegetable or light chicken stock • 1 x 400 g tin chopped tomatoes • 1/2 lemon, juice only • 2 tbsp coriander, leaves and stalks, chopped Serves 4-6 :Takes 5 minutes to prepare and 15 minutes to cook

1. Preheat oven to 200C. 2. For the chilli and garlic pitta crisps: Mix the pitta wedges in a bowl with the olive oil, garlic and chilli. Place on a baking tray in a single layer and sprinkle with sea salt. Bake for 7-8 minutes or until golden brown. 3. For the soup: heat the olive oil in

a saucepan and add the celery, onion and some salt and pepper. Cook on a low heat with the lid on until soft but not coloured, for about 10 minutes. 4.

1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/fan170°C/gas 5. Line 2 large baking trays with non-stick baking paper. 2. Sieve the ground almonds and icing sugar together into a large bowl. Put the egg whites into a separate bowl, and using an electric hand whisk, beat to soft peaks. Add the caster sugar, and whisk until glossy. Fold into the almond and icing sugar mixture, along with a very small amount of the pink food colouring. Mix until just combined and evenly pink - the mixture will reduce as the air bubbles in the meringue burst. 3. Put the mixture into a disposable piping bag, snip off 1cm from the end. Pipe small blobs (about 1 heaped teaspoon each) onto the baking paper, spaced apart, so you have about 50 in total. Set aside for 10 minutes to dry - this is important as it gives the macaroons the correct texture. Bake for 5 minutes, then turn the whole sheet of paper over - the macaroons will be stuck so won't fall off. Bake for another 4 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool. 4. Peel off the baking paper from the macaroons, then sandwich 2 together with a tiny blob of strawberry jam in the centre. Repeat to give you 25 in total.
