BBC Asian Network is a British radio station whose target audience is young people aged 15-35 of South Asian descent (Indian/Pakistani/Bangladeshi), and anyone with an interest in South Asian affairs. The music and news comes out of the main urban areas where there are significant communities with these backgrounds. The station has production centres in London (Broadcasting House) and Birmingham (The Mailbox).Our Manager, Nadeem, was invited by the BBC to be interviewed about the impact of social media on voting trends and various related subjects. The interview was for the BBC Radio Asian Network, which is predominantly targeted at the UK’s three million south Asians.

Nadeem was asked to share his expertise on a number of points, including:

  • How has social media affected people’s voting preferences?
  • How is Britain’s Labour Party using social media to attract the youth vote?
  • How do different south Asian religious groups vote?
