ANNOUNCEMENT - New Livestream Show Exclusively for Gettr
1) ANNOUNCEMENT - New Livestream Show Exclusively for Gettr
On Friday 1st July 2022 Radical Media, which is the group that brings you the free Radical Dispatch & the subscriber only Resistance Radio both via Substack, as well as the free weekly Radical Show exclusively for Odysee, will additionally launch:
“WARRIOR CREED”: a new livestream lifestyle show exclusively for Gettr via Maajid Nawaz’s Gettr feed.
WARRIOR CREED is not a news and current affairs show, though we will discuss news and current affairs at will.
WARRIOR CREED will be a weekly live interactive event, focusing on conversations, appearances and physical & spiritual training all designed to revive a warrior’s creed, as passed down by word of mouth and tradition through ancient unbroken chains of learning by our spiritual mentor Shaykh Aleey Abdul-Qadir.
WARRIOR CREED is an unscripted livestream that will feature spontaneous conversation around physical, mental and emotional wellness, diet, fitness, spiritual and physical discipline as well as hosting those who further enhance a sense of collective responsibility to ourselves and the world around us.
2) Introducing Warrior Creed Co-Host Usman Raja
WARRIOR CREED will feature two hosts. Maajid Nawaz will be joined by his longterm friend, the MMA coach and counter-extremism mentor Usman Raja.
Who is Usman Raja?
As CNN reports:
“Raja, the 34-year-old grandson of a Pakistani immigrant is not tall but he is built like an ox, with a close shaven head, short beard, and otherwise pure muscle. On his thumb he wears a ring with a curving metal spike, a legal form of self-protection, which he says is extra insurance if extremists try to physically confront him.
Raja is one of the UK's most renowned cage-fighting coaches, having fought in arenas across the UK during the early gritty years of the now fast growing sport, also known as mixed-martial arts (MMA).
He is also a man of deep ideas, including harnessing Islamic teaching to defeat the ideology of the terrorists.
Three years ago, Raja began taking under his wing some of the most dangerous offenders being released from the highest security wings of the British prison system; men convicted of carrying out terrorism on behalf of al Qaeda in murder, assassinations, bombing, and arson plots.
His aim was to rehabilitate them into mainstream society.”
And as CNN further reports:
“To see Usman Raja before a cage-fight is to see a man in his element. As scantily clad dancing girls parade around and fast paced techno-music blares through the venue, and rows and rows of mostly white working class spectators eagerly await the contest, Raja is in a side room prepping his fighters, sparring with them, and reminding them of the importance of technique…
..Raja is also behind what UK officials say is the most successful effort they have seen to de-radicalize some of the most hardline Islamist extremists being released from UK jails, including around a dozen convicted terrorists who recently completed their prison sentences. He has used cage-fighting as a key tool in this work. Raja says teaching the former terrorists cage-fighting skills has proved a remarkably effective way of breaking them out of their al Qaeda mentality, opening up their minds to his counter-extremist message, and providing them with a sense of discipline and purpose…
..In his late 20s Raja called time on his own fighting career and began trying to help others. In 2005, he carried out his first community outreach work with Kurdish Muslims involved in London's violent criminal underworld, whom he had encountered through his coaching in London gyms. "I had grown up with violence but I'd never seen anything like this," he said.”
