Tariq Mehmood Ali
My first novel, Hand on the Sun, was published in 1983, much of which was written in jail or else on bail, on charges of terrorism, during a case which was known as the Bradford 12. The novel focused on the issues faced by Asian youth of the 1970's.
My second novel, While There Is Light, was published at the end of 2003. This deals with some aspects of the case of the Bradford 12. It was meant to be part one of two. I have also published a number of illustrated books, as well as one novel, Courageous Ali and The Heartless King, for children.
I write in two languages. English and Pothowari, my mothertongue. This is also called Pahari and Punjabi. Until recently this was primarily a spoken language, one which since British colonial times has been discriminated against. I helped to bring this language into the written form, particularly in prose.
