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.
