On 7th July 2001, the Manningham area of Bradford experienced what has been described as the worst rioting in mainland Britain for 20 years. The riots erupted after weeks of tension fomented by the activities and threats of the National Front and BNP - an organisation that continues to win a large number of votes in council elections in the area. Bradford Riots tells of that night of vicious rioting from the perspective of a group of young Asian men whose lives, families and community have been defined and decimated by these events. First-hand research within Bradford's Pakistani community examines the Muslim community from the inside to see how it lived and breathed before mass violence blew up on its streets, and explores the painful aftermath. Bradford Riots takes individual accounts and seeks to explore why this violence happened, who was to blame and how the sentencing of a generation of young Asian men took place even though the majority handed themselves in to the police, pleaded guilty and had no relevant previous convictions.
