DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing. It really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.
BAME communities are making progress in leaps and bounds. The Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities (UK) launched its report in March 2021, highlighting the achievements of the BAME communities, as well as understanding disparities between different ethnic groups and offering solutions to close these gaps. The CRED report drew a lot of controversy from critics, including cases where some of these 'anti-racist' campaigners hurled racist abuses against these commissioners. Hasan's book delves into the arguments raised by these vociferous critics and provides comprehensive responses. Whilst he defends most of the CRED report, Hasan's book is independent of it. He has approached critics for a constructive debate and continues to wait.
“Hasan Imam's treatise on CRED Race Report offers a thorough and brilliant critique of a critically important issue. Hopefully, he will be able to help steer the conversation in a manner that protects the UK from following some of the mistakes we have made in the United States." (Carol Swain is a former professor of political science and professor of law at Vanderbilt University and author of Be the People: A Call to Reclaim America’s Faith and Promise).
"An interesting, historical reference to events surrounding the release of the CRED 'race report'. If anything, this book highlights the importance of reasoned debate and nuance, which was evidently missing at times from elements opposed to the release of such an evidence-based document. It's apparent that opponents to the CRED report would rather we focus on rhetoric over facts." (Calvin Robinson, political commentator, columnist for The Telegraph and the Daily Mail)
“A carefully argued counter to the emotionally charged insult hurling response to Dr Sewell’s report on Institutional Racism. Hasan Imam step by step, point by point breaks down the contradictions and nonsense uttered against the review by commentators who should have known better. This work by Hasan Imam is a unique contribution to the ongoing debate in the construction of a fair and equal society in a 21 st century One Nation Britain where institutional racism is a thing of the past.” [Nirj Deva DL, Member of the UK Parliament (1992-97), Member of the European Parliament (1999-2019) Publisher http://www.commonwealthunion.com]
