BBC News On Adnan Ahmed; Innocent Man Arrested Over Non-Threatening Online Videos Due To Sensationalised Media Scandal

BBC News’ Scottish Counterpart BBC Scotland’s Underground Online Branch – BBC The Social, Try To Destroy Innocent Dating Coach Adnan Ahmed

It is unbelievable that this story about Adnan Ahmed, from a small-time online sleazebags at BBC The Social actually made the BBC News website. Well, the BBC lying and cheating is not a new thing. BBC News has always been the main fear mongering propaganda machine for the UK Government.

More recently the BBC have been in the midst of a treacherous scandal themselves because of their attempts to con old-age pensioners out of their life savings by scrapping free TV licences for people over 75. This is a disgusting, desperate move on the BBC’s part; as younger people hardly watch TV and their main audience is the elderly, whom the BBC decided to target and exploit to make a profit. An improvement in content is a better strategy to gain popularity. The reason why the BBC’s popularity is failing is because of shows like BBC News reporting lies, like they did with their story on Adnan Ahmed.

The fact that this stupid story defaming dating coach Adnan Ahmed made the actual BBC News website is ridiculous. It is understandable that BBC The Social and BBC Scotland would report it as Scotland is a small village like nation with a tiny population of around 6 million people. Ignorance levels are high and gossip is big news in the Scottish media. However, England is massive, they shouldn’t take anything from the dummy Scottish press seriously. Normally they don’t, because Scottish journalists and the news they create are somewhat insignificant when it comes to the whole of the UK. However the everyday people of Scotland who see beyond the media fog, have shown immense support and warmth for Adnan Ahmed.

Though the BBC News tried to report impartially, they fell short because they shared bullet points from the lies and trash their Scottish minnow reporter counter parts spread like dog dirt, concerning an innocent man and business entrepreneur Adnan Ahmed. BBC News should know better.

Successful dating coaches in England such as Street Attraction, Tom Torero and Nick Krauser (to name a few) have a massive following and upload the same type of dating videos on a daily/weekly basis as Mr Ahmed, known to his YouTube followers as Addy Agame. He casually described his videos as nothing more than “a bunch of guys talking to a bunch of girls.” If you watch Agame’s videos they are exactly this. The aforementioned London dating coaches/ pick-up artists have much larger followings than Ahmed, have more content online and some of their videos are much more provocative than Addy’s content – yet in England this is a non-issue.

They face no criminal investigation, huge nationwide media scandals or remand periods in custody (like the 7 months so far for Ahmed) because England practice freedom of speech and see the reality of there videos being for teaching and business purposes. The same goes for the United States who host the biggest “pick-up” company in the world, RSD (Real Social Dynamics). Scotland on the other hand shows it’s backwards nature and aggressive feminist nature by actually hosting a criminal trial for men talking to women with romantic intentions, simply asking to exchange phone numbers. It is the first time this type of case has been brought into Scottish courts, which has baffled legal experts and is only taking place because of media sensationalism.

Adnan Ahmed has collaborated with London coaches such as Street Attraction and Tom Torero amongst others, as well as American dating coaches such as My Locario, Steve the Dean, Afi King, etc. Yet again, no one else in the dating industry has faced legal backlash because they are not based in Scotland.

BBC News stated “Police have arrested a man in connection with videos posted online teaching men how to pick up women…following an inquiry into footage of men chatting up women in the street.” This is true, but they failed to mention that the man is innocent of any criminal activity. BBC News continued “it followed publication of a BBC The Social video exploring pick-up artist Adnan Ahmed’s online video posts.” Adnan Ahmed has always maintained he is not a pick-up artist, he has always said he is a dating/ life coach.

It is a sad state of affairs when people are unable to talk to each other face to face, confining society further into dating apps and social media. In this era it is more normal to troll pictures and profiles online, messaging desperately and projecting a false persona to lure others in; whereas starting a random conversation with someone you find attractive face to face during the day is considered not only abnormal, but also criminal. There is more danger involved in meeting someone online than there is in meeting them in person. Plus face to face dating is a much more human and much less time consuming process, that is if police Scotland don’t arrest you first.

Police Scotland are quoted as saying Ahmed’s behaviour was “predatory and would cause fear and alarm”, after succumbing to media pressure from aggressive online feminists and blood thirsty journalists. Initially when BBC The Social’s video degrading Adnan Ahmed went viral, Police Scotland are quoted as saying “we cannot follow up on this as there is no actual crime to investigate, no crime has been committed.” They were quick to change their tune after BBC The Social’s video gained millions of views and began a witch-hunt amongst the public because of how it was edited and how it portrayed Adnan Ahmed as a demonic sexual caricature, rather than the responsible understanding life coach that he is.

It’s totally bizarre and shockingly worrying that a country’s police force can’t withstand pressure from online trolls and can be manipulated so easily by faceless crazies on the internet. Yes, Scotland is a very small country, but that does not excuse the stupid backward policing tactics used for this matter. There should never have been an arrest in the first place. The police were aware of Ahmed’s dating business 3 years prior to BBC The Social’s hate fuelled video falsely demonising him. They spoke to Mr Ahmed about it on a number of occasions in casual conversation. Both male and female officers approved of it. There are phone calls and written police reports to confirm this.

Adnan Ahmed worked in conjunction with the police, as his job as a Criminal Justice Practitioner made this inevitable. Ahmed’s behaviour was never “predatory”. He ran an online dating business on YouTube for all to see; his clients, video demonstrations and spontaneous conversations with any women were all during the day on well populated busy city centre streets. He wasn’t hiding anything, so how can his actions be described as predatory, shameful or dangerous?

Police Scotland are supposed to investigate matters neutrally and without prejudice. Instead they contributed to the media mayhem by making comments defaming a man who is not guilty of an actual crime, but was charged, indicted and remanded regardless. The police are now trying to fish for a conviction to cover their mistakes and to not face legal action themselves. At the time of writing this, Ahmed has been on remand for the past 6 months, he has been held in custody, untried and without the option of bail since January 2019.

The Sheriff Court indictment has been designed in such a way to convict Adnan Ahmed on a technicality of Scottish Law (Moorov/ corroboration) rather than using substantial hard evidence, because there is none. Ahmed is not permitted to present vital evidence that proves his innocence because of Scottish court laws that protect prosecution witnesses, even if they are lying.
