Tower Hamlets in Britain is famous for major Bangladeshi population in that area. Even, the proud community had the first Bangladeshi MP of British Parliament to come from there. Unfortunately, a part of teens & young-adults there, are getting involved into heinous crimes from drug trafficking, smuggling & even murders. Bangladeshi community and Metropolitan Police in this area, are showing high concern due to sudden and extreme rise of the crime and Bangladeshi youngsters’ involvement with the underworld.
Community Leader Barrister Nazir Ahmed informs, crimes and deaths are occurring very often due to gang-related issues. Right among the Bangladeshi teens. Family unawareness & social separation are leading these, only 13-18 years old children to fight over territory and other radical issues.
Barrister Nazir Ahmed advises that, only direct care & education from the family can prevent these teens from getting into such radicalism. They should be guided to get them more involved into education or work. So they become more aware about their career and get busy with their lives.
