On 4 June 2021 our Chairman Lord Sheikh and one of our Associate Members Ikhlaq Hussain attended Friday prayers at the Ilford Islamic Centre. Given the continuing coronavirus pandemic, social distancing precautions were observed.
The mosque asked Lord Sheikh to address the congregation about our mission.
Lord Sheikh gave a very well received talk about NMWMT and why it needs the support of all people as part of uniting our country.
After the talk, Lord Sheikh was also able to meet with an inspiring individual. Colonel Mohammad Ghani is a centenarian who is still fit and well and served in the British Indian Army during World War 2. The photograph below was taken in Ilford Islamic Centre.
There is a page about Colonel Ghani in our Veterans Project.
