Remembrance: Muslim designer creates poppy hijab

A fashion designer from London has decided to mark 100 years since the first Muslim soldier was awarded the Victoria Cross for bravery in the First World War - by creating a special "poppy hijab".

Tabinda-Kauser Ishaq, a 24-year-old final year student at the University of Arts, has been working with integration think tank British Future and the Islamic Society of Britain to try and come up with an idea to raise money for the Poppy Appeal.

It also aims to celebrate the contribution of Muslims to UK society.

BBC Asian Network's Athar Ahmad joined the designer and her models for the launch of the hijab.
