The Pakistani and Kashmiri Community is the largest ethnic minority community living in the city of Birmingham and its surrounding areas.
The Census 2011 revealed that the Pakistani ethnic group had grown faster ?(39%) than any other ethnic group in the last decade. It has more than doubled in size since 1991 growing from a population of 66,100 to 144,627 (an increase of 119%). 55,922 (approx.30%) of this group have been born in Pakistan/abroad. Considering same trend now it could be approx 180,000+.
Despite these statistics, recognition of this group is barely reflected in the local media, especially in broadcasting provision in Birmingham & Sandwell. Indus Radio ( Not for profit company No. 09040268 ) has been created specifically to respond to this dilemma and seeks to address the particular needs of this unique community.
Indus Radio will utilise information, share knowledge and disseminate advice and guidance with a view to educating, informing, raising awareness and removing barriers to access and develop a thematic approach to broadcasting
