Gulwali Passarlay is an Afghan refugee who was destined by the Taliban to become a suicide bomber.
Alone aged 12, he escaped into the hands of child traffickers, surviving horrifying ordeals as he journeyed through eight countries to arrive (on his 100th attempt) in the UK from Calais in 2007. Now aged 22, Gulwali is a politics graduate of Manchester University. He was asked to carry the Olympic torch through Bolton in 2012.
What made Gulwali leave his country for an uncertain future? Hear his story and how it relates to today’s refugees, and ask your questions.
