My Pashtoon Story: In conversation with Sharleen Shaha Gul

Originally broadcast as part of Bradford South Asian Heritage Month 2021

My Pashtoon Story: In conversation with Sharleen Shaha Gul
Presented by Shamim Akhtar

Sharleen Shaha Gul shares her personal love stories and links to the Pashtoon culture, the heritage of her being, with readings of her poems and music. Please note, this programme was recorded around the time of the Taliban takeover in Afghanistan in August 2021. However, there was an emphasis on sharing all of the other heritage identifiers that don’t usually make the news of this beautiful country, away from war.
