Maksud Gangat Conferred MBE Award 


In December 2019, the full 2020 New Year Honours list was released and it recognises the achievements and service of people across the UK, from all walks of life. The system acknowledges the achievements made by numerous people from ordinary people to celebrities and public figures who have made considerable contributions to public life or commitments to serving the community or a particular field.

Our very own board member, Maksud Gangat, was awarded the Member of the Order of the British Empire by HRH Prince William, Duke of Cambridge at Buckingham Palace in February 2020. This prestigious accolade by the Royal Family was in recognition of his services to the Muslim community and interfaith work in South London. We are pleased to have Maksud on our board, contributing to the strategic direction of Ash-Shahada.

We know that you will join us in congratulating him on this fantastic achievement!
