Officers praise hard-hitting videos tackling serious issues in the community

Officers in Birmingham have praised a mosque for producing two hard-hitting videos demonstrating the devastating effects of domestic abuse and knife crime. 

The two short films have been produced by The Bahu Trust after West Midlands Police helped them gain funding. The rest of the production was heavily subsidised by Planet X films and many of the local people featured gave up their time to support and act in the films, making this a truly community led initiative.

The Trust worked closely with Hall Green Constituency, community members and neighbouring faith institutes to reflect issues affecting their community and developing ideas and messages they want to portray in these films. 

The videos were launched on Monday (25 November) a date which coincided with the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, at the Bahu Trust (Sultan Bahu Mosque) in Birmingham. 

Birmingham East Superintendent Sarah Burton said: “The launch of these two faith inspired videos addresses the key issues around domestic abuse and knife crime. 

“The Bahu Trust were inspired by the levels of violence in their communities and the realisation that something needs to be done to start conversations in the community. 

“We hope these videos help victims of domestic abuse to seek help and come forward, and also for people to realise that knife crime not only affects the offenders and victims, but also their families and the wider community. 

“These are really powerful videos with such a strong message and we hope they are shared far and wide."
