Meet Abbas Nasir

Having worked as a senior journalist for the BBC, as well as in Pakistan, Abbas Nasir discusses how working in the media differs between the countries, while touching on how new technologies and social media has changed Pakistan. He describes how sectarian violence has hurt Pakistan and his concerns about a lack of tolerance towards minorities and violence against women. Nasir describes how impressed he is with the courage of Malala Yousafzai and his concerns about what her story says about where Pakistan is heading today. He finally he sums up Pakistan in four words!

This film has come out of a series of workshops that students from Leyton Sixth Form College attended, organised by Shazia Ali Webber at Rich Mix London.
