SHOW - 2 Brown Girls
In today’s globalised society, being proud of your culture takes courage, curiosity and negotiation – so say 2 Brown Girls, aka Seetal and Aaminah, who join us in the studio to explain exactly how they unite their South Asian and Western identities, whilst still staying true their own individuality. They discuss the benefits of their inter-faith friendship, as well as sharing stories from their travels around the world. Off the back of an EDL march in Preston, we get the reactions of Muslims and non-Muslims attending the counter protest, ‘One Preston, One Community’ where participants handed out free food, hot drinks and roses with messages of love attached. Plus, there’s music from Georgia Anne Muldrow and Sakinah and Inayat go head to head in our Haldi challenge!
It’s important to take a world view on things.

Ummahsonic Haldi Challenge
Warning: Not for the faint-hearted
On this week’s show, we asked our Ummahsonic podcast presenters a series of questions based around British and Muslim culture. For each wrong answer, they had to pick a mug to drink. Sound easy? Each mug has a different drink inside - one orange juice, one turmeric and water (haldi), one cayenne pepper and water and one plain water.
Game? Let’s go.
