SAMIA MALIK ihtgw interview by Sade Aknife

Huge thanks to Sade Aknife, for going through this interview and filming this 3 times!

After being partially anonymous for years, in past year a few friends grilling me to break away from anonymous front. And battle of being an anonymous creative female, which in this time and age; unfortunately only has certain amount of life span!

Coming into 10 years since ihtgw started, I thought it would be right bench mark to introduce myself. That started with blog shoot with: The Style Scout, and then you tube interview below with my assistant Sade.

Why we had to film this 3 times:
Day 1: I was on a wrong mode. Day 2: interview was fine (part 1), but 10 minutes was accidently deleted by me. Day 3: success (part 2/3), but I forgot to mention a few important points, so I recorded them on own computer (part 4).

Free Babar Ahmad: The Official Campaign Site to Put Babar Ahmad on Trial in the UK

    Babar Ahmad is a 37 year old British Muslim and the longest detained-without-charge British detainee held as part of the global ‘war on terror’. In December 2003 Babar was arrested at his London home under anti-terror legislation. By the time he reached the police station Babar had sustained at least 73 forensically recorded injuries, including bleeding in his ears and urine. Six days later he was released without charge.

    In August 2004 Babar was re-arrested in London and taken to prison pursuant to an extradition request from the US under the controversial, no-evidence-required, Extradition Act 2003. The US has alleged that in the 1990s Babar was a supporter of “terrorism”. Babar denies any involvement in terrorism. He has now been in prison for six years even though he has not been charged in the UK.
