Mobeen asks whether the Asian community still hides mental health issues.

Do we still hide mental health issues in the Asian community? BBC 2 drama 'The Boy with the Topknot' tells the story of a boy growing up in the Midlands, who finds out as an adult that his father has mental health issues which the family have been keeping secret. Also author Mamoon Yusaf talks to Mobeen about his book 'Inside the Soul of Islam', which he says defends the religion against negative stereotypes. Then Mohammed Ali, from the Knights of the Raj exhibition, tells us about the Bangladeshi influence on Britain's curry industry. Alisha Ali, whose eight year old son has been diagnosed with diabetes and Dr Aftab Ahman, a consultant in Diabetes at Royal Liverpool Hospital, tell us what they are doing to raise awareness of the disease on World Diabetes Day. And Mobeen speaks to Ravinder Singh Robin, a journalist in Punjab and SNP MP Martin John Docherty-Hughes about the arrest of Jagtar Singh in India. According to a Sikh group he has been arrested over claims he was "influencing the youth through social media.".
