Taiba and Saghir – Some Digging?

I’d been reading this https://rotherhampolitics.wordpress.com/2015/05/04/a-fresh-start-or-labours-cynicism/
where it says that Taiba Yasseen is a disability campaigner
“Taiba Yasseen, who has campaigned nationally on disability issues”.

when was that? I thought she was in the acting business, and everything else says that young Akhtar is still in charge.
