“I’m not British and I don’t want to be” – Channel 4 News story by Assed Baig



In September I contributed to this short documentary for independent journalist Assed Baig, which aired on Channel 4 News (UK) on 28th October 2014. While the link is up on YouTube I thought I’d post it here. It features candid testimonies from British Muslims in Birmingham on their feeling of alienation and disillusionment with the British establishment and wider society, in the midst of media storms around the Trojan Hoax, Syria and ISIS.

Note: I contributed to this as a ‘participant’, i.e. a British Muslim residing in Birmingham, and have shared my personal views; my¬†contribution was not made in an academic capacity.
