Faith, Politics and Socialism | Aaron Meets Salma Yaqoob

Almost two decades ago Salma Yaqoob was politicised by the ‘War on Terror’ – both at home and abroad. Now she is looking to be Labour’s candidate in next year’s West Midlands Mayoral election.

Aaron Bastani caught up with her at this year’s ‘The World Transformed’ to discuss how she became politicised, why she joined Labour and how she views the relationship between politics and faith.
