BRADFORD West MP Naz Shah now hosts her own television programme on British Muslim TV.

The Naz Shah Show is broadcast live on Friday evenings from 8.30pm from the Wakefield-based studio and means she has made history, by becoming the first-ever female British MP to have her own television show.

It sees the MP and her guests discuss some of the most challenging topics of conversation within the community.
In her inaugural show, Ms Shah discussed road safety, before featuring her first guest of the series, Shaista Gohir OBE, a leading women's rights activist in the community, in a discussion on misogyny in society.

The coming weeks will see 'taboos' within BAME and Muslim communities discussed, like inter-racial racism, disabilities, mental health and crime.

She said: “I'm delighted to have my own show on British Muslim TV.

"Whilst I stand on the shoulders of many of my fellow political sisters, it’s important that we support aspiring young Muslim females by exercising leadership through dialogue over much-needed conversations, whilst showcasing positive role models."

The MP is hosting the show voluntarily and it's hoped it will set a precedent in BAME and Muslim communities to see greater female representation in politics and current affairs.
