Charan Cultural Centre presents TALK: Radicalisation - A Bengali-British Perspective
Tuesday 8 November, Kobi Nazrul Centre FREE

Doors Open: 7.00pm Show starts 7.30pm
Why did Khadiza Sultana, a British teenage schoolgirl of Bengali origin, join the so called
Islamic State in Syria where she recently died in air strike? She is one of many such young British women and men abandoning a relatively safe and prosperous life in UK, in order to fight a cause far away from their home and country of origin.
Why are these young people attracted to radicalisation? What inspires them to make a potentially fatal choice? We are joined by host Arif Rahman and speaker Masud Rana for a talk which will explore the issue from a British Bengali perspective.
