BBC Asian Network - Guess the Story

Today Wilson Chowdhry appeared on the BBC Asian Network Guess the Story Show with Presenter Nihal and a studio panel that included Sofia Hayat, an Actor and Singer who recently converted from Islam to Christianity. 

Listen to the show which took place in the last 50 minutes of the link below:

More and more British Pakistani Christians are being invited to appear on Mainstream media shows.  This is excellent news, as it allows our community to be recognised.   Many British People are still unaware that Christians exist in Pakistan, we must raise the recognition of our community if we are to tackle the issue of persecution in Pakistan.

  1. I am puzzled.

    Winston says that "More and more British Pakistani Christians are being invited to appear on Mainstream media shows" but, since when has the BBC Asian Network Guess the Story Show been 'Mainstream'?

    How many non Pakistanis listen to this channel - let alone this particular show? Very few, I would imagine.

    I have no quarrel with Winston's final sentence which is, I assume, the message he wishes to put across, but I would suggest that his enthusiasm is sadly misguided ...

  2. His name is "Wilson" not "Winston"!
    I also notice he is on the front page of the YA this week!

  3. Apologies to Wilson - although I have a sneaking suspicion that he would like to be as popular and well known as a certain Winston Spencer Churchill was in the early 40s ...

    ... rather than as reviled as another Wilson was thirty years later ...

    The past always looks better in hindsight?

    Wasn't there also a Chap named Brown who kept falling over?
