Reporter, Journalist, and Editor in Berlin, Deutschland
Born in 1989 in Hamburg to Pakistan parents Abdullah interned at various TV production companies after finishing high school. He then enrolled in a two year traineeship at Axel-Springer-Akademie. Parallel to his studies he started working in the ‘investigative department’ for Germany’s number one best selling newspaper BILD. In 2016, at the peak of Germany’s so called ‘refugee crisis’, Abdullah landed a ‘journalistic scoop’: he infiltrated Germany’s ’Federal Office for Migration and Refugees’ in Berlin as a fake employee and uncovered wide deficits in the process of granting asylum to refugees. In 2017 Abdullah was awarded the ’Henri Nannen Prize’ for a social media project on the Holocaust. That same year Mediummagazin chose him as one of Germany’s 30 top journalists under 30 years. Abdullah is also fluent in English, Urdu and Punjabi.
