It has been a pleasure helping Navid Akhtar, a senior producer of documentaries who has worked with BBC and Channel 4 and is the brainchild behind Alchemiya.

Alchemiya will be a video on-demand platform like Netflix for Muslims. It is set to launch in the U.K. in December, it won’t be a religious channel and has both Muslim and non-Muslim staff according to Al Jazeera.

The platform has already attracted subscribers from the United Kingdom, Japan, Sweden, Australia and the United States. The project has been endorsed by likes of Hamza Yusuf, a prominent American Muslim scholar, and Tariq Ramadan, an academic and writer from Oxford University.

Alchemiya set to commission documentaries, poetry, music and more from Muslim artists around the world. It will cater for documentaries that has been produced in the Islamic world but haven’t found a platform yet.

All in all, we are really excited even though I myself come from an orthodox mindset but I truly believe we need a platform with choice of quality programmes that is both educational and entertaining.
