Zaida and Aadam, and the problem with Prevent

Find out more about Zaida and Aadam, part of This Place We Know.


Zaida and Aadam by Gbolahan Obisesan tells the story of two young British Muslims who have been channelled onto the government’s controversial anti-radicalisation programme Prevent.

At the point we meet them they have recently been deemed no longer a threat to national security, but they are still being monitored and they begin to meet up to discuss the pressure this puts them under.

The video below, published by The Guardian on 26 August 2016, does a really good job of explaining the intensely unpleasant situation that Zaida and Aadam find themselves in.

It is presented by Rahmaan Mohammadi, a 17 year old who, after organising a fundraiser for Palestine at his school in Luton, found himself under investigation by Prevent.
