Skin lightening

Are you surprised that some children are whitening their skin to avoid racism? An NSPCC report suggests race-related crimes against children have risen by 20% in the last 3 years.

Are you surprised that some children feel the need to whiten their skin to avoid racism? The NSPCC has published a report that suggests race-related crimes against children have gone up by a fifth over the last three years and that some children feel that lightening their skin colour protects them from racism. After that, entertainment reporter Haroon Rashid and Bollywood fan Khadiza Begum will join Qasa to review Aladdin and discuss Salman Khan’s comments about his female co-stars. Plus, Qasa will bring you his highlights from the Hay Festival where he spoke to school pupils from Bradford, and its director Peter Florence about an initiative to get more young people reading. And author Muhammad Khan will be talking about his new book ‘Kick the Moon’.
