Background

Karmia Institute started Radio Ramzan which broadcasted only in the month of Ramadhan, this means that the company has experience in the radio industry. Radio Faza was the sixth of the fifteen original pilot Access Radio stations in the United Kingdom which paved the way for the full launch of community radio stations in 2005. Asian Women's Project and Karmia institute attained the radio license together, therefore broadcasting was shared between both companies. The Karimia Institute used to provide programming from 12:00 Thursday until 12:00 Sunday and the rest of the programming was provided by The Asian Women's Project (now broadcasting as Faza FM).

When the radio license expired Karmia Institute lost its bid to keep Radio Faza and full broadcasting of Radio Faza began by Asian Women's Project. However, Karmia Institute then applied for a new radio license and thus Dawn FM was finally live across Nottingham on 107.6FM. Dawn FM is the voice of the Sunni Muslim community across Nottingham.
