Resigning from MEND
Some of you may have heard the news that I have resigned from MEND at the end of December 2017.
Being one of the co-founders of it, this was a hard decision to make but one that was necessary as I felt that certain principles on strategic matters had changed from what they were at the start and for me these were non-negotiable. Alhamdulillah, it’s been a fantastic journey and I am grateful to Allah for the opportunity to have played a part in establishing MEND across the UK, and more importantly empowering Muslims to challenge the Islamophobia that we face on all fronts as confident Muslim citizens.
My vision and efforts have always been to create more opportunities for the huge talent we have in our community to participate and take our community to even greater things with total confidence in their identity as Muslims, without feeling the need to compromise any of their Islamic values or identities. I will continue to do this in my new role at CAGE as its Community Relations Director.
Look forward to engaging with you all.
