Rotherham’s first Diabetes Day Have you got diabetes? Would you like to hear the latest up-to-date information about this common life-long health condition? If so, then why not attend the first Rotherham Diabetes Day being held in the borough geared to local people affected by diabetes? Taking place from 9.30 am until 1.30 pm on Saturday, November 16, at the Carlton Park Hotel, the event is being organised by the Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust in partnership with Diabetes UK, the NHS in Rotherham and Rotherham Borough Council. Three million people in the UK have diabetes and a further 850,000 people are estimated to have the condition, but don’t yet know it! In Rotherham over 11,000 people are living with diabetes and managing the condition. You might be worried about the effects of diabetes, which is a condition, related to

high blood glucose levels, or you might want to find out more about it? If so then the half-day event will answer your questions as it includes talks and workshops led by local the local diabetes specialist team, which includes consultants, GP with special interest in diabetes, and specialist dieticians, nurses and podiatrists. Diabetes is a very common condition, when managed

correctly, can have little impact on everyday life. But to achieve that, people with diabetes do need to control their condition very carefully and this event will allow experts to give helpful information on how to do that in easy bite-size sessions." To book your place on the day please register and pre-book via northyorks@ diabetes.org.uk or telephone 01325 488606.

According to a joint statement by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (DBIS) and the Low Pay Commission (LPC), from Oct 1 the NMW rate for adults was increased by 12% to £6.31 pounds an hour, the

rate for 18-20 year old workers increased by 5% to £5.03 pounds an hour, that of 1617 year old workers was up by 4% to £3.72 an hour while the apprentice rate rose by 3% to £2.68. The NMW raise came after recommendations from the LPC which plays a crucial role in advising the government on setting the NMW rates every year. "The National Minimum

Wage is a vital safety net in protecting the low paid,” British Business Secretary Vince Cable said. At the same time, the government also warned that, employers who failed to pay the NMW would be publicly named and shamed under revamped plans to make it easier to clamp down on rogue businesses.

Taxi drivers in Sheffield will use government guidelines in their fight against compulsory CCTV cameras in cabs. The licensing committee voted in favour in February, saying it would help to reduce abuse and violent attacks. But Sheffield Taxi Trade Association says central government stipulates CCTV should only be attached to the conditions of a licence where there is cause for concern. Drivers are preparing to present the document to the council ahead of a review into the decision next month. Sheffield Council said it would consider introducing CCTV in the city’s 857 Hackney cabs, after taxi driver Arshad Mahmood was hit in the face with a broken bottle, losing the sight in one eye, but government guidlines still hold back the decision. Hafeas Rehman, chairman of Sheffield Taxi Trade Association, said: “This shows what the Government are thinking – that unless there is real evidence to sup-

He added: “Use of a surveillance camera system must always be for a specified purpose which is in pursuit of a legitimate Mr Rehman said: “The council aim and necessary to meet an are very cautious but they are identified pressing need.” Last year, the council refused or revoked licences of 23 hackney carriage drivers. Of those, 19 appealed at Sheffield Magistrates’ Court and 17 won their case.

Sheffield Primary schools are bottom of the Class for Attendance Truancy rates among primary school pupils in the city are the worst in the whole of Yorkshire and the Humber. Department for Education figures show 1.2 per cent of school days at primaries in Sheffield were missed due to unauthorised absence during the autumn term last year and spring term this year. The figure means 1,853 pupils are classed as persistent absentees – and puts city primaries in the bottom 10 nationally. In total, 5.3 per cent of Sheffield primary school days were missed due to truancy and sickness – the joint highest in Yorkshire and the Humber alongside Rotherham and Barnsley. The statistics show 6.4 per cent of school days were lost in secondary schools – similar to last year and close to the Yorkshire absence rates were 6.5 per and the Humber average of cent. Sheffield Council, the local 6.2 per cent. education authority, said it Barnsley had the third high- believed primary school abest level of secondary school sence was high due to an inabsence in the country at crease in illness in the 7.4 per cent.

ed pupil absence is likely to fall further after a ban on term-time holidays was brought in except in ‘exceptional circumstances’. Consistent school attendance has a massive impact on young people’s educational achievements and the longer they are away from the classroom the harder it may be for them to fit back into school life and form friendships. The council aims that direct support from attendance and inclusion officers will help raise awareness among schools and families about school attendance. The DfE said it aims to tackle absence by increasing fines for truancy, which last year rose from £50 to £60, and from £100 to £120 if not paid within 28 days.

Education and High Storrs School By: Mr Akram and Mrs Heggs

High Storrs School is always trying to improve performance of all of its students. We strongly believe that an important part of this is involving parents and the local community in our students’ education. Over the next few months we will be contributing a series of education articles to ILM, such as the ‘Attendance and Achievement’ and ‘How to help your child revise’. Through these articles we are hoping to better inform you, and help you support your children during their time at our school. These articles will be written by Mr Akram (teacher of Urdu) and Mrs Heggs (teacher of maths and BME coordinator). Mr Akram has been teaching at High Storrs School for over 20 years. He gained his teaching qualification from Huddersfield University and did post-graduate studies at the University of Sheffield.

He played a key role in the introduction of Urdu on to the school timetable and teaches to students from Y8 to Y13.

MURDER ON THE HOLY DAY OF PEACE By:- Jaan. M. Khan

He knew it was going to be a busy day. Having run the Bismillah Food Store for many years, he knew what the day would entail. Growing up he would have also been no stranger to the goings on in a busy meat shop, having watched his father Mr Iqbal, who opened the shop some 35 years ago, sweat and toil to make the business the success it is today. In the shadow of his brothers he would have also have been a witness to their efforts in the running of the business and when the mantel fell on him, was all too ready to embrace and continue the hard work necessary to run the family business. On his morning journey to the shop, which he must have taken a thousand times, he would probably be thinking of all the orders and work which lay ahead.

A void in the hearts of his family and a recurring pain in the conscience of all who knew him. The untimely death of Parvis has deprived his children of a loving and devoted father who will now forever be absent from their birthdays, their Eid celebrations, their future marriages and successes. Yet he will always glow brightly in their memories never diminishing from their prayers. They can take solace that their father died the death of a martyr an innocent lamb, who will take his place in heaven and be amongst the most righteous on the day of reckoning.

‘At Risk’ Groups urged to have Flu Vaccine Public Health officials are urging those eligible to receive a free winter flu vaccination to make sure they get it. The season of Flu vaccination has begun and GPs across the district are inviting people to have their flu jab. This includes inviting all people 65 years-old and over, those with long term health conditions, children aged 2 and 3 years and pregnant women to have the flu vaccine People in the clinically ‘at risk’ groups are 11 times more likely to experience complications if they get the flu than a ‘healthy person’. This includes those suffering from heart, lung, liver, lung kidney or lung disease, diabetes, stroke or a lowered immune system. Children aged 2-3 are also

being asked to take a safe and effective nasal spray vaccine to protect themselves and help prevent the spread of flu to adults and other children. It’s not just a cold. Flu is very contagious and can be a really serious illness. Having the flu vaccine doesn’t just

protect you; it helps stop the flu spreading to other people who may be even more vulnerable than you. Even if you’ve already had a flu jab in previous years, you need another one this year. This is because the viruses that cause flu are always changing.

Health officials particularly encourage older people, adults and children in at risk groups and mums-to-be to make sure they have their flu jab to protect themselves. For mums –to –be this protects themselves and their unborn babies as flu can lead to serious complications in pregnant women. National guidance states the vaccine is safe throughout pregnancy and can protect newborn babies up to about four to six months from birth. If you haven’t received a letter or are a main carer of an older or disabled person you should contact your GP to check if you qualify. Anyone not at risk can contact their local pharmacy to find out how they can receive the flu vaccination although a charge will apply.

Bogus Claims Crackdown Causes Car Insurance to Fall 12% hind hits them. A newer variation of this is called ‘flash for cash’, where a fraudster flashes their car headlights to give the impression they are going to allow another driver to pull out into the road and then deliberately rams into the other vehicle.

Car insurance premiums have fallen at a record rate of 12 per cent compared to last year after a tough clampdown on bogus claims. The typical quote for annual comprehensive car insurance cover was £568 in October, which was 4.5 per cent lower than July and marked a 12.4 per cent fall on 2012 rates. Cheaper quotes on the market now show a massive reverse for motorists following a period of strong increases, with premiums rising by more than 40 per cent just two years ago. People aged in their early 20s to late 30s have typically seen the biggest drops in their insurance premiums over the last year, with falls recorded across all age groups.

plans, which will make it harder for people to exaggerate or make up injury claims. Insurers estimate bogus whiplash claims typically add an extra £90 to a driver’s policy.

Although young men tend to be the cause of many accidents, European gender equality rules which came into force last December mean that insurers are no longer allowed to take someone’s sex into account when calculating how much they should pay for their car insurance.

There have also been signs of stronger action to break up criminal gangs who take part in scams such as ‘crash for cash”‘, when a driver deliberately slams on their brakes so that the unsuspecting motorist be-

This means that young women renewing their policies after their first year’s driving can expect to see premium increases which will more than cancel out their first year’s no-claim bonus.

The findings come as tougher action to combat whiplash injury fraud was unveiled. New independent medical panels will be introduced under the

Sectarianism has brought the country to the brink of destruction. Because it is such an important issue I would like to write about this menace. First of all, let us see what the Almighty has ordered in the Quran on this topic.

Doner Kebab Inventor Dies Kadir Nurman, the man largely credited with inventing the doner kebab, has died in Berlin aged 80. Nurman was born in Istanbul, Turkey before moving to Stuttgart, Germany at the age of 26. He then moved to west Berlin, where he worked as a mechanic for a printing press. In 1972, he started selling grilled meat accompanied by salad in a flatbread, having noticed the increasingly fast pace of life for residents in the city. The concept of eating meat off a skewer was not a new one, but putting it into bread allowed busy Berliners to purchase a

Sectarian Strife

• And obey Allah and His Apostle and fall into no disputes lest you lose heart and your strength (8:46). This country, which our founders built on the basis of exemplary unity, is now a hotbed of sectarianism. Independence was achieved by our former leaders only after defeating the nationalistic tide in the Indo-Pakistan Subcontinent, and was based on Islamic harmony. The Caliphate of Turkey, a symbol of Muslim unity and a world power for centuries, was shattered by the curse of nationalism. Misled Arabs were at the forefront of this disunity and helped in the breaking up of a united Islamic empire. From Indonesia to Morocco people became inflamed by nationalism, which resulted in the formation/independence of many small countries and the disintegration of a unified Muslim empire. Many so-called ‘nationalist heroes’ such as Sukarno, Nasir, Bourguiba, etc appeared on the scene and unintentionally helped Muslim antagonists in the breaking up of Muslim unity. Another result of this was the creation of Israel and the destruction of the Palestinian nation.

The point to be stressed here is that, even under such adverse conditions, our founders still managed to form a strong, unified Muslim platform and work for, and obtain, an independent Pakistan. The foundation of this newly formed country was based on Islamic principles, viz the Quran and Sunnah. All this happened even while nationalist movements in other countries were at their peak and those countries were breaking away from Muslim unity. Where do we stand today? What is the state of affairs in this God-given country? In reality we have become probably the worst sectarian stricken country in the world. This divide is not limited to religion alone, but has grown to encompass the language, provincial, economic and cultural domains as well and has torn the country into a large number of factions of different interests. Hardly any group of people can be found who is not part of one faction or another. They very often will call themselves anything other than ‘Pakistani’ or ‘Muslim’. As a nation (Ummah and Islam) we were most favoured by the Almighty. We were taught love, affection, respect, consideration and mutual support by our religion but see what we have become today – merely people belonging to a bunch of different factions, deaf, dumb and stupid to all other considerations and each other. In 22:78 it is said: “The Almighty has named you Muslims, both earlier and in this period (revelation)”, ie we are supposed to be believers in Allah and His Book (the Quran) and we were given the beautiful name of ‘Muslims’; for us as for earlier nations before us. In the Quran we read: “Ibrahim was not a Jew, nor yet a Christian, but was true in faith and bowed his will to Allah’s (which is Islam) and he joined not gods with Allah” (3:67).

supposed to behave, how we are to treat others, etc. Many of us read the Quran every day, but we have become what the Quran calls “deaf, dumb and devoid of wisdom”. Our hearts have become sealed because of all our wrongdoings and we can no longer see the light. We continuously commit sins, wrongdoings and crimes and are often proud of our misdeeds. One need only see wrongdoers leaving courts as if they were victors to realise the truth of this statement. Regarding mosques, the Almighty has taught us: “And the places of worship (masajids) are for Allah alone, so invoke not anyone along with Allah” (72:18). Our Prophet (pbuh) said that mosques were the best place on earth, a place where Muslims unite and create a social network. Each mosque has its own symbolic relationship with the Kaaba (Masjid-e-Haram). We all face it while praying, but even that sacred place has been turned into a place of dissent, and of sectarianism. The very place meant for cementing our relationships with each other, a place of love, affection and mutual respect has become a place of dissent, division and hatred. What have we done to these places of prayer and mutual respect? They have now become defined by sectarian names. We have given them conspicuous signboards proclaiming their identities, ie they are meant to be forbidden for other Muslims if they don’t agree with or follow their particular philosophy.

In the same manner religious divisionists have set up their own schools where only their particular (often distorted) type of Islam is taught. How are they going to face the Almighty on the Day of Reckoning? Have not their (mis) deeds been in direct conflict to what has been taught in the Quran? Is not the Quran supposed to be our foremost source of right and correct behaviour? This sectarianism is seen by many as being a Why then are we divided into direct curse of Allah on us all Shia, Sunni, Barelvi, Deoban- for our wrongdoings. di, Ahle Hadith, Salafi, etc?

LOVER OF CURRY

Non-Invasive Post-Mortem Option We rely on our National Health Service to give the best possible care to us and our loved ones at every stage of our lives. The range of ways in which it does this is huge – bringing babies into the world, caring for the sick, both old and young, and being there to help make sure our final days are as comfortable and dignified as possible. Many of us remember someone who went that extra mile for us when we were in the care of the NHS – whether it was a practice nurse in the local GP surgery, a clinician in an A&E or a helpful receptionist in a busy hospital. For many, it is those individual touches that can make all the difference to how they view their care and even to how well they recover. But there is more to our experiences of the health service than the doctors and nurses we meet along the way. For many patients and families, it is just as important that the systems and processes that they come into contact with are respectful or their needs, their wishes and their values. Nowhere is this more true than when a person passes away. Whether death is expected or not, the processes and rituals that take place when someone dies are deeply engrained in different cultures. Individuals and their loved ones understandably want to ensure that their cultural needs are taken into account. Post mortem examinations

commissioned by coroners have traditionally involved an invasive internal medical examination of the body by a pathologist. Faith groups, including from the Muslim community, have lobbied over a number of years for less invasive post mortem

techniques, such as the use of scanners, to be more widely available. This means that cause of death can be established with minimal disruption to the body. Such techniques are undertaken by specially trained radiologists who use CT or MRI scanners to look inside the body. It can establish which cases will need an invasive post mortem. While an invasive autopsy may still be required, it can provide comfort to many to know that every attempt has been made to avoid this. The provision of this service, like all health services, is a mat-

ter for local health commissioners to decide. But it is available in some areas and over time, could be made available in more. Whilst the costs involved must be taken into account, the key is that all options are considered by coroners and patholo-

gists and that people are aware of the choices they may have. Thanks to the research and guidance that has been published, people can be confident that these options are being properly weighed up. Where it is possible to offer a noninvasive post-mortem, people can be sure that their wishes are being taken into account and their religious and cultural needs respected. This scientific breakthrough is welcome news for all bereaved families as post mortems are often distressing for relatives.

Review By Andy Stovell fuzl@blueyonder.co.uk

You have to admire the success of the Aagrah restaurant chain. Their latest restaurant has just opened in Crystal Peaks and I went last night with friends. I was delighted. What they do at Aagrah, they do very well. That is, you won’t be disappointed by the experience. Their level of professionalism is leagues in front of the others. The food consistently excellent. The handshake and welcome at the door from the smiling gentleman in his fine Pakistani regalia sets a great tone. Inside, the waiters were quick and helpful. Smartness prevails. The wellstocked buffet is well thought through - 13 starters and 14 main dishes were on offer and 9 creative salads. The offering of drinks extensive. I don’t know about you, but I can easily get stuck on the starters if they’re good. These were. The lamb chops were fantastic, as was the Balochi chicken tikka. I almost didn’t move on I was enjoying the starters so much but was glad I did. Munir and Jaswant the head chefs had created some superb tastes in their main courses. Their awesome Murgh saag and Karahi gosht deserve special mention. Like angels dancing on your tongue. The level of spices were perfect and there was a sense of being

prepared apna style to many of the dishes. The karahi gosht literally made me feel I was back in Mirpur. We asked for our roti to be prepared crispy and we were accommodated no problem. I enjoyed watching the chefs preparing our food in the kitchens live via two big flat screen TVs. That’s a nice touch. And a big risk that Aagrah are prepared to take. That shows a lot of confidence that they will provide you the best they can. No doubt, it was great food experience. Zahid, the young but very competent manager runs a tight ship and is accessible to diners too. To say it was their opening night, there is not much they need to tinker with to improve the service. We were the last diners of the evening, but the food was still fresh and there was no sense that we were getting the dry leftovers. Nor were we being hurried to leave. But by way of constructive comment I wish to make this point. On arriving, I bumped into my neighbour who has been to most of the Aagrah restaurants. He wasn’t gushing compliments but was very satisfied. “It’s very good. Like all the Aagrah’s”. And that is my point. It’s like all the other Aagrah’s. There were no discernible distinctives.

Nothing really to mark out the evening as especially different. Now I know some people want that predictability. It’s accessible to new curry eaters and will be ideal for a group of friends wanting a straightforward night out. But there are those of us who sometimes want that bit more and actually are happy to put up with (even enjoy the charm of) a potentially less professional experience for the sake of an authentic experience of Kashmiri culture and food. I sat looking at the pristine surroundings: the chrome, the lighting, the modern furniture, and I thought about what would lift things to a different level. How about a couple of Asian women in Pakistani clothes mixing with guests and chatting; images of Kashmir and Kashmiri life; an occasional cultural moment - a song, a dance, even if it was just on-screen. But live if possible. Just a thought. But hey, don’t let it put you off. I’m just a sucker for authentic culture. Get yourself along to Aagrah World Buffet in Crystal Peaks. £12.95 before November 14th.

more ammunition to right-wing extremists by treating Muslim children as potential traitors to Britain. The Government is not considering the consequences of this Islamophobic action of telling muslim children they are not British patriots. All surveys since 9/11 and more so since July 7 London bombings show that Muslims feel more British, identify more with British institutions including the armed forces than the popula-

tion as a whole. Still the Government is looking at the Muslim community with suspicion. The plan is to be included in preparations to mark the centenary of the First World War. As part of coordinated events, some 650 Muslim military personnel are to be sent to schools to convince youngsters that it is possible to follow Islam and be a patriotic Briton.

CRIMINALS - HOW THEY SHOULD PAY Half a million crooks return to a life of crime. Almost 150,000 criminals convicted or cautioned in the last year had at least 15 prior offences on their rap sheet. These reoffenders make up a total of more than half a million lawbreakers in the last 12 months who have previously turned to crime, the ministry of justice statistics show. This is a ‘frightening scale’ of reoffending. So is the justice system really working? These figures represent too many devastated victims, too many wasted lives and broken families and millions in taxpayers’ money squandered. The public are fed up with crooks doing their time and going straight

back to crime. Not enough is being done for the victims. In the recent case of the elderly asian couple who enslaved a deaf mute girl from Pakistan for a decade. I believe victims like this should be given compensation in repayment for the abuse she had suffered. It would be fair to give her the property of the old man and woman who did this to her. Criminals should have their assets stripped and given

to good causes in repayment for the harm they do to indivicuals and society. I saw a good example of a name and shame method of punishment recently. She imposed the punishment of ‘stunt’ sentences. Publically humiliating an offender by making them wear a sign that reads what they have done and how they apologise for it, for a certain length of time, seems a really good deterant. More swift punishments would save time and costs and humiliate people on lesser charges. As for the bigger criminals, well they should ultimately repay in a way which would make them suffer.

Muslim Free School Threatened With Closure A Muslim free school could be closed if it does not take "swift action" about how it is being run, the Government has warned. The Department of Education has written to the Al-Madinah Free School in Derby, demanding that it address concerns about its practices.

it has stopped any activities that could lead to women and girls being treated "less favourably" than men and boys. It will have to show that it is meeting equality laws in any case where it proposes separating boys and girls or treating them differently. It has also been ordered to tell staff they are not required to According to the letter sent cover their hair if it is against by Schools Minister Lord Nash, it has failed to keep pupils safe, provide a good education and has discriminated against female staff. He said the school had "manifestly breached" its conditions and could expect to be closed down if it does not make immediate changes. The letter comes after claims that female teachers at the school were forced to wear hijabs even if they were not Muslim. Other reports alleged female pupils were made to sit at the back of classrooms and boys at the front. The school has been to prove

their religion or beliefs. Further action that the school must take in the next few weeks includes showing it has a "broad and balanced" curriculum and welcomes

children of all faiths and none. The Department of Education has also demanded a full list of all staff, including their references and evidence of criminal record checks. This effectively means that the school will face closure if it fails to deal with the Government's concerns. AlMadinah, which is one of the Government's flagship free schools, opened in September last year. On its website, it describes a "strong Muslim ethos" with shorter holidays and longer school days "to maximise opportunities for pupil achievement and success". It adds: "At the centre of our school is a community of pupils, able to enjoy learning in a caring Islamic environment which promotes a culture of high expectations and outstanding performance." Al-Madinah declined to comment on the letter.

PROPERTY CORNER

AUTUMN - THE SUMMER OF THE PROPERTY MARKET Mohammed Mahroof BSc (Hons) MRICS Consultant Mark Jenkinson & Son

The autumn so far this year has been like an Indian summer. This is also reflected in the property market. In the last few years we have read and heard a lot of commentary regarding the difficult state of the market. We have been struggling to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Arguably the light seems to be getting closer. Investors, speculators and property followers are seeing the market twitching towards a recovery. Activity certainly seems to be improving. There are many reasons for this but the main one being quoted is that “it can't get any slower”. Arguably there is some truth in this.

So what are people looking for? There is certainly a rising demand for commercial investment properties with good tenants and long leases. Location and area are important but not necessarily to the exclusion of a good covenant. Residential properties are also seeing a rise in demand. Look around your areas and you will clearly see signs of this with the number of sold signs appearing. In fact, in some sought after areas in any city the demand seems to be outstripping supply. In London and some parts of the south house prices are rising at alarming rates. The average house price in London is over £300,000. One must not see London as a barometer of the national market because this is an international buyer's market. Competing not with the likes of Birmingham, Leeds and Manchester but

Paris, New York and Rome.

THE NIGHT WHEN THE STARS CAME OUT FOR NAZIA HASSAN By:- Mukhtar Tufail

© 2013 NAZIA HASSAN FOUNDATION TRUST 14th October 2013 will always go down in history as the night when the stars came out to play. But these stars were no ordinary stars, for they were matchless in nature and renowned for their own colossal attainments. The Bollywood Queen Zeenat Aman, The master of beats Bap-

Nazia Hassan left this world 13th of August 2000, it was natural she be remembered, 13 years on, and 13th of August 2013. “It’s a motherly thing explained an emotive Mrs Baser who emphasised the importance of the concept 13 years “.

rable lawyer, but it was her commitment and level of passion towards her civic responsibilities that really touched the hearts and minds of so many. The charity worker, the ambassador of the poor, the women who had everything but yet prioritised those who had nothing.

As the night shined under the umbrella of the Nazia Hassan Foundation Trust, a selective number of stars and exclusive dignitaries articulately began painting a picture of Nazia Hassan’s accomplishments.

Perhaps the most poignant moment of the night was when the audience was given an insight into the real Nazia Hassan. The story of Nazia Hassan who told Mr and Mrs Baseer not to buy her presents on her birthday but rather to distribute the equivalent amongst the less fortunate triggered a wave of tears amongst a crowd of some 300 visitants.

Naturally hearts were both stolen and fluttered, eye lids flickered as the beauty queen Zeenat Aman eloquently embellished the stage. She humbly talked of her time with Nazia and corroborated the fact that Nazia Hassan was a rare shining star which may not always be visible to the naked eye but whose sparkle Hence their presence, these could not be avoided. stars came out to endorse, memorialise and glorify the life of We were reminded about how an inimitable this irreplaceable soul, Nazia p e r s o n a l i t y.

pi Lehiri, Member of Parliament Sheikh Rashid Ahmad. The head of Pakistan national arts counsel Touqeer Nasir, were a sample of such stars that were shinning at the Park plaza Hotel in London, the venue chosen for the Nazia Hassan Foundation Trust’s Memorial Concert.

This emotive journey was then enlarged when Ameer Shaulkat Ali performed something that was so cherished by Nazia Hassan. A chronological piece of poetry (Baba Bhulley Shah's Klaam ) with other supporting performances by newcomers Sonata and Harbeer Kaur. Correspondingly the audience found great comfort when Zara Hassan accompanying Arez Hassan collectively paid tribute to Nazia Hassan for being an amicable Charity Worker. Other delights of the night included a decidedly honorable performance by the legendary music director Bappi Lehiri, followed by other supporting acts such as the very talented artist Ali Abaas who recited Sufiyaana

Kalaam in a rather unequivocal style. Thus, by the close of play a bulk of the attendants had succumbed to the only logical conclusion. The term Nazia Hassan has become, by virtue of The Nazia Hassan Foundation Trust an institution in its self, a legacy that will continue to live through the passion and love of both Mrs Muneeza Basir ( the inglorious mother to the late pop diva)and Arez Hassans ( the son of Nazia Hassan ) .

As the event came to a standstill, the stars left, the shinning lights were switched off leaving behind just a black canvas, and there was one thing that was continuing to make the room still glow.

Whereas in the North of England the Trust under the umbrella of women empowerment welcomed South Yorkshire’s first female Assistant Chief Constable of Police. Asked why the trust was covering such a wide array of projects Mrs Basir said “ I want people to realise that in death Nazia Hassan gave something larger to the world, her legacy of caring and thinking of others will

Energy Efficiency With Solar City Solar City has gained accreditation on a new government initiative to install free energyefficient boilers to households nationally. Solar City, which is based in Sheffield secured approval by undergoing a robust assessment process in order to qualify as an installer of free "A" rated boilers on the government-backed ECO scheme aimed at reducing carbon emissions by replacing old inefficient boilers with new ones. These new "A" rated boilers reduce significant amount of carbon emission and delivers cost savings to households which is quite handy in the current economic climate. The ECO (Energy Company Obligation) was introduced in January 2013, for the big six energy suppliers under an obligation to support affordable warmth and reduce carbon emissions, including the provision of heating and insulation improvements

for low-income and vulnerable households by providing funding to insulate solidwalled properties and delivering insulation measures to people living in the bottom 15% of the UK's most deprived areas. As a result of this government agenda, the big energy suppliers have made available a set amount of funding each year to achieve government targets by replacing old boilers with the best rated boilers. Tariq Mahmood, Director of Solar City said: "We are delighted to be part of this great government scheme intended to deliver significant economic benefits to households in terms of cost savings but also deliver environmental gains in reducing carbon emission".

IIMMIGRATION UPDATES & IMMIGRATION ACT 2014 Parliament hope to have the bill in force by summer 2014. Parliament’s objectives out outlined below. Removal • Create a system where only one decision is made that encompasses both a person’s immigration status and their removability. They intend to replace separate powers who make removal decisions with one central power who can remove individuals who do not have leave to remain in the UK. • Grant further powers to Boarder Control Officers such as allowing them to undertake protective searches of detained people, enable officers to search for travel documents that are not already held by the Home Office. Make sure an officers powers to use reasonable force are applied uniformly. Grant powers to check fingerprints that are equivalent to police powers. • Change the Tribunal Procedure Rules to prevent repeat bail applications, by rejecting applications made within 28 days of previous application. • Allow the Home Office to maintain detention if removal is scheduled within 14 days. • Amend existing powers to make it clear non-nationals must provide biometrics when applying for transit visas or a family permit. Also anyone applying for British citizenship must provide biometrics. Appeals • Reduce the number of immigration decisions that can be appealed from 17 to 4. • Ensure foreign criminals can be deported first and appeal after. • Create a more transparent process so that decisions on human rights and asylum must be considered by the Secretary of State before the tribunal. • With regards to Article 8 make it clear what the public interest requires, and ensure that the courts consider the public interest when deciding a case regarding article 8. Access to Services -Tenancy • Ensure new tenants in privately rented homes are legal residents by requiring landlords to carry out simple checks on new tenants. • Will penalise landlords who do not carry out these checks with civil penalties. • Create an online system for landlords to carry out these checks. • Ability for landlords to contact the Home Office with a maximum 48 hour response time. If no response is received in this time the landlord is free to rent. • Aiding vulnerable people by creating much simpler document requirements for them, exempting homeless hostels and halls of residence from regulation. -Health Service • Ensure that any person who is subject to immigration control is required to pay a health surcharge as a precondi-

tion of entry. Once the surcharge is paid the person is entitled to healthcare as any permanent resident. • Those seeking asylum, humanitarian protection or temporary protection will be exempt of the surcharge. • The surcharge amount will be set by secondary legislation. -Bank Accounts • Ensure illegal migrants are not able to open current accounts by requiring banks to undergo immigration checks on new applicants. • Migrants who are found and have exhausted all appeal rights will be liable for removal from the UK. • Any person refused a current account for reasons outlined by this bill must be informed as such by the Bank or Building Society. Following this the person must obtain evidence of their lawful immigration status. • Secretary of state retains the right to discretion as to whether a person identified as an illegal immigrant should be referred to the anti-fraud agency. • The treasury will gain powers to ensure that illegal migrants do not seek alternative providers or products. -Work • Increase the maximum penalty for employing an illegal migrant from £10,000 to £20,000. •

intelligence based risk profiles and factors and accounts from registration officials. • If the Home Office has reasonable grounds to suspect a sham marriage then the notice period can be extended to 70 days. Oversight • Create a new duty on the Immigration Commissioner to cancel the registration of regulated organisations where they are deemed to be unfit, incompetent or defunct. These decisions will be appealable to the First-tier Tribunal of the Immigration Services. • The Commissioner can apply to the Tribunal to suspend the activities of an advisor charged with a serious criminal offence. • The Commissioner can apply to a Magistrate for a warrant to enter any premises in which a regulated advisor is operating. Failure of an advisor to comply with a warrant could result in the cancellation of the organisation’s registration. • Require all immigration organisations to be registered. The Secretary of State reserves the right to authorise the commissioner to waive the organisation’s requirement to pay a fee and in return the organisation charges no fee for their services. Miscellaneous -Embarkation Checks • Port operator staff will have the power to carry out embarkation checks and maybe compelled to carry them out if necessary. • Powers of examination currently only held by an immigration officer will be granted to a designated person in relation to persons leaving the UK. • Those who have a role in the outbound passenger procEmployers must raise an objec- ess will be trained to perform the tion to the secretary of state basic checks required to estabbefore making an appeal to the lish a passenger’s identity.
