About me

Hi all,

Thanks for visiting my personal blog and I hope you've enjoyed reading it. As well as publishing the articles that I have posted elsewhere (Guardian, The Student Journals, Huffington Post UK, The Muslim News, Quartz, The Times, The Telegraph, The Independent and anywhere else that I write), I also occasionally write blog posts exclusively for my own personal blog.

The topics I write about most are: technology, French politics, ethnic profiling, human rights and foreign policy. I have appeared on BBC World Service radio in 2005 talking about learning Arabic & was part of a panel discussion on whether Muslims are being attacked for the TV programme, World Have Your Say, in 2012.

Feel free to contact me on Twitter at @sirajdatoo.
