Gambling addiction

A former addict says gambling is a hidden problem in Asian Communities. Do you agree?

A former addict says gambling is a hidden problem in Asian Communities. Do you agree? Qasa is asking this after Hussain Vorajee said his addiction became so bad he was losing thousands a day. He also said it was hard to talk about his problem openly because he comes from a Muslim background and that gambling is forbidden in the religion. After that we’ll hear from Salman Khokar, who lost his sight aged 27, to hear about the challenges he's faced with his visual impairment. He is currently undertaking a PhD at the University of Leeds and wants to tell people that the condition should not stop them from doing what they want to do with their lives. Then Qasa will be discussing an article that cricketer Moeen Ali has written for the Guardian, in which he says one of the biggest strengths has been the diversity and respect within the England cricket team. This comes after they won ICC Cricket World Cup trophy for the first time. Plus, this week’s 'What's God Got To Do With It?' feature, our panel of guests will discuss whether the government was “too slow” to respond to the LGBT row outside schools in Birmingham.
