Majharul introduces the gang

To view the video you will need REALPLAYER

POSSE
By Majharul Islam
Mahjarul and his friends are the younger branch of the Stepney massive. He introduces the gang. Asian youth are not into fighting like in the old days, but that means people try and take liberties - they don't have respect for them, and they need to do something about it. But he loves the area - you've got everything you need here - open spaces, shops, parks, a community - and he wouldn't want to move, even if he had the chance.

After viewing this rather detailed documentary for the second time...my opinion has changed...I don't agree with gangs I think it really does promote violence...I dont agree with all that "we are doing it for defence" stuff...I really feel angered with such silly behaviour espicially from my fellow asian youths...

Wow, that area of stepney no longer exists, they've replaced it with terraced houses made from plaster.

Its amazing how people can change within their surroundings with time!!

Easy now, stepney massive, respect

Majharul Islam (himself)
Looking back at it after such a long time seems very funny. I'm out of the gang stuff but my views regarding the area are still the same if not stronger, Al hamdulillah!
