This week we’re at the Tory party conference in Manchester with the Conservative Muslim Forum’s Deputy Chair Naveed Asghar, joined by the Estonia-based journalist and Hyphen contributor Shafi Musaddique and broadcaster and commentator Fahima Mahomed. Our panel discuss Suella Braverman’s controversial comments on multiculturalism, whether the right-leaning British TV channel GB News should shut down in the wake of a sexism row, and our favourite natural landmarks, prompted by the felling of Britain’s Sycamore Gap Tree.
Plus, in honour of National Poetry Day, the British-Somali poet Momtaza Mehri shares a new poem on the theme of refuge, commissioned exclusively for Hyphen.
