On October 24, YouthWay presented The Untold Karbala at our official launch in Bradford. We had a turnout of over 1,500 men and women, young and old, with over a thousand more watching the event live from their homes on Ustream.
Imam Asim, whose won the hearts of young Muslims as the UK’s ‘on-a-level’ Imam, was especially chuffed about the success. “I was very happy to see so many young people turn up,” he said about the event, which lasted 4 hours. “But I was even more happy to see so many young people stay till the end to learn about the story.”
Also we wanted to educate the youth on this topic as we feel it is a bit of a taboo subject that English speakers do not tend to touch upon and it is an important story which needs expanding on.
We’ve had an onslaught of emails asking when The Untold Karbala will be uploaded onto YouTube. Thank you all for your patience. You can now watch the talk, in two parts, below.
