Respect Cllr Salma Yaqoob cautiously welcomes a new government advertising campaign initiated in a bid to ‘soften’ the perception of Britain by displaying images of British Muslims on billboards in Pakistan in a bid to curb terrorism.

However, she challenges Labour MP Khalid Mahmood on whether the campaign highlights or even addresses the real cause for a lot of the Pakistani population’s discontent with the British state: foreign policy.

Following the deaths of 200 people in Pakistan by British-supported US raids in Pakistan last year alone; and a further 40 Pakistani civilians being killed by US attacks only last week, Salma doubts the new campaign will appease the serious concerns of ordinary Pakistanis and the radicals terrorists who exploit them.
