Storyline

The arson murder of Ali Raffiq, a mullah and social activist in Manchester's Pakistani community, is viewed initially as a hate crime by the police. DCI Lewis and her team enlist the help of Shaz Chowdhary, a community relations liaison, and although the evidence initially points to Mark Clayton, head of the local Britons First party, Lewis comes to increasingly feel that trail of the murderer will lead them into the Muslim community.

The community can be both a lever and a trap
13 June 2008 | by (Olliergues, France) – See all my reviews

Here, Manchester explodes with another social problem, that of the large Moslem Pakistani community. It all spins around a mosque and a young mullah who is assassinated. You double this side of the problem with the militancy of a racist party and its leader and you have an explosive situation and some would like to excuse the lack of a real inquiry with the danger of this explosive social, religious and ethnic situation. The film shows how the English have set up a local police corps entirely composed of members of the community to do the police work in this community, and one of the members of that unit will be the interface between the Manchester criminal unit and the mosque officials and community and that's how the truth will finally come up and out, how too the female Inspector will be able to enter the inner circle of the mosque without creating any resentment.
