‘The ballot is stronger than the bullet.’ These famous words emphasise the importance of voting, campaigning and utilising democratic channels in order to bring about real change and progress. Although, you’d be forgiven for losing hope in recent years. But I’m still hopeful.

Through greater understanding, stronger unity and a better strategic approach, I believe minorities in the UK – particularly the Muslim community – will be able to effectively influence public policy for the benefit of the whole country.
