A radical and a pioneer, Naseem was born in Birmingham to an Indian father and German mother. After studying at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford, she was held as an 'Indian spy' whilst travelling in Pakistan during the second India-Pakistan war in 1965. She was ultimately released back into India.
Naseem returned to London, and became part of the black power scene in Notting Hill, editing the Hustler magazine with contemporaries including Darcus Ho.
