Saqib Deshmukh was born in South London in 1967. He has worked all over the country as a youth worker and he settled in High Veecombe/Wycombe in 1997.
He also been a music promoter, a DJ, an Arts trainer/Tutor, and managed bands such as THE KALIPHZ, as well as setting up theatre companies AIR theatre (1984-1989) and AAJKAL Theatre (1989- 1993 & 1999-2001). He has set up a production company INDUS VALLEY FUNK PRODUCTIONS to do stupid creative things and regularly works as a writer in schools, community centres and for local aunties.
In the last six years he has been a campaigner around deaths in custody after the death of a Pakistani man literally on his doorstep and has worked with the family to set up the Justice4Paps campaign.
He fears that this has now labeled him as a domestic extremist and that the police are ‘after him’. The local police declined to comment on this accusation.
In his spare time he likes to eat and sleep.
