Yasir Mirza, the Head of Diversity and Inclusion at the Guardian and Remona Aly, the Campaigns Director at Exploring Islam Foundation and a freelance journalist, explore representations of  Muslims in the UK media.

They speak about violent events including the Woolwich murder, Mohammed Saleem's murder and the Tipton Mosque bombing. They also look at representations of female Muslims in the UK, from headscarves to rock music.

This podcast was released alongside 'The New Muslims' report by the Runnymede Trust.
