Salma Yaqoob to be on Question Time Thursday 8 February

Issue No. 2037

Birmingham Respect councillor Salma Yaqoob will be on BBC1's Question Time at 10.35pm tonight, Thursday 8 February. Among other topics, she is likely to be talking about the war on a terror, in a week when many of her own voters feel increasingly threatened.

She said Muslims were angered and frightened by news reports in the British media quoting unidentified sources giving vivid details about a plot by alleged terrorists of British Pakistani descent. 'They lead to a lot of cynicism and distrust... and that doesn't help community cohesion,' she said.
