Aims and Objectives




  The aims and objectives of ABC Think tank shall be:

1.  To provide a forum for thinkers in various fields, for sharing their knowledge and experience with fellow members. The forum will have free discussion on matters relating to British Asians and will be open to people from all races to contribute and benefit.

2.  Its activities will benefit the members, British Asian and other non-Asian communities in the UK and abroad. The objective is to extend work to the benefit of not only wider British communities, but also to communities abroad that link to Britain especially in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Iran, Afghanistan, and the Middle Eastern Countries.

3.  To enable the British Asians who have not been back to the Indian subcontinent to withhold their Asian culture and values while living in the UK. 

4.  To bring together British Asians who have made numerous achievements in a spectrum of different fields.

5.  To define more clearly what the term ‘British Asian’ can be taken to really mean, and identifying this definition in context of today’s world of change and uncertainty.

6.  To identify the causes why the British Asians claim to feel discriminated and marginalised by certain members of our society.

7.  The national consensus shows that British Asians are the least educated group in Britain and have the largest rates of unemployment in the UK. Our objective is to think about reasons for this and propose correct solutions to the politicians.

8.  British Asians comprise 4% of the population yet are grossly under-represented in the Parliament. Our objective would be to bring more political awareness in British Asians.
