Outstanding British Pakistanis

Across the community, in the last 50 years, the contributions of British Pakistanis to society are vast and varied. Ranging from pioneering doctors and humanitarians to history-making politicians, these outstanding individuals are stepping up as role models for the next generation. The Outstanding British Pakistani programme showcases the successes of these contributors and celebrates their achievements with them.
