This panel asks what it means to be of Pakistani descent, living in the UK. How do the diaspora ‘wear’ their heritage? 

To celebrate 75 years since Pakistan gained independence from Britain, and inspired by CM04: Pakistan?, which we will revisit on this panel, photographer Rehan Jamil and journalist Asyia Iftikhar explore expressions of heritage through images and interviews that capture the depth and diversity of British–Pakistani life, to be published in the upcoming History issue of Critical Muslim

Critical Muslim is a quarterly publication of ideas and issues showcasing groundbreaking thinking on Islam and what it means to be a Muslim in a rapidly changing, interconnected world.
