Sadia Azmat to Feature in BBC’s British Muslim Comedy Shorts!

The wonderful Sadia Azmat will be featured on British Muslim Comedy Shorts available on iPlayer from 9pm Thursday, June 18th!

Her short ‘Things I’ve Been Asked as a British Muslim’ will appear alongside pieces by five others, including Asim Chaudhry and Guz Kahn. The show has been commissioned to celebrate Islamic culture as Ramadan begins. Described as ‘goofy and self deprecating’ by the Guardian, this is certainly not one to miss!

More information about the show is available HERE.
