WHAT IS ALCHEMIYA?
ALCHEMIYA IS A VIDEO PLATFORM THAT PRESENTS THE WORLD’S BEST CONTENT ABOUT MUSLIM LIFE.
The world’s best films and documentaries about Islam and Muslim life are available on Alchemiya. From award winning films to independent documentaries, we have a wide selection of subjects to keep you entertained and informed. Travel, lifestyle, children’s programmes, history, religion and so much more. With new content being added regularly, there’s always something good to watch.
HAVE YOU EVER WANTED TO ACCESS GOOD TELEVISION CONTENT ABOUT THE MUSLIM WORLD, ITS CULTURE, IDEAS AND ACHIEVEMENTS?
There is little or no regular television content for the intelligent, cultured, creative Muslim audience.
This under-served demographic is clustered in cites all over the world. They are young, well-educated, politically aware and socially conscious. They are raising young families, and are concerned with issues of education, health and child development. They have diverse interests that extend to art, music, film, books, documentaries, heritage, the environment and social justice. For them, Islam is not only about the past; it is also the way forward to a meaningful life whether they live in the traditional Muslim world, or in the West.
Is Christianity compatible with Britain? Can you be Christian and British? Are the questions we should be asking after Tim Farron’s resignation as the leader of the Liberal Democrats. After years of being browbeaten and hounded by the both secular liberal left and right, Muslims in Britain are the only ones who have their Britishness questioned for holding firm to principles that are shared by other faith communities. I agree with Farron when he says we should not force our positions and opinions on others and we don’t begrudge others rights that we enjoy.
I firmly believe that attacks on Islam and Muslims are as much to do with the hatred of the other as they are to do with hatred of religion in general. Looks like the liberal and tolerant society we live in no longer tolerates people of religion.
“Islamist”, “Islamism”, it doesn’t matter, average Joe public and bigots don’t care, they see it only as Islam. They are not informed enough to make the distinction and don’t care to either. Ordinary Muslims are stuck between the devilish dogs of the Khawariji Daesh and pig ignorant bigoted Muslim haters. You can reason with neither one of them. I am at a loss for what the rest of us can do to stem this tide of hatred and division that has been unleashed. It is a pernicious poison, it infects and spreads quietly through suspicion and innuendo and it is taking hold of ordinary people who before would normally have no issue with Islam and Muslims, and would generally be immune to the bullshit pumped out by the Muslim haters and their media. Just how much worse can it get for us in the West?
ISIS/Daesh are winning, they are fuelling hatred and alienation of Muslims and pushing western governments into compromising their democratic ideals.
