Yasmin Alibhai-Brown is a Journalist and author, born in Uganda in 1949, she moved to Britain in 1972, shortly before the Ugandan Asians were expelled from the country by Idi Amin.
Yasmin writes for the Independent and the Evening standard and is a Shia Muslim, often writing on race and religion. She was awarded and later returned an MBE, partly in protest to the Iraq War.
Yasmin describes herself as an anti-racist and has discussed what she describes as a Muslim preoccupation with Israel, suggesting that pro-Palestine commentators and activists are often selective and willing to ignore atrocities committed by ‘murderous Arab despots’.
Yasmin also played a key role in seeing Stuart Hall arrested, after turning over to the police an anonymous letter that alleged abuse by the BBC presenter. Her actions led to the initiation of the police investigation that led ultimately to his conviction.
