Mustaqim Bleher is the Education spokesman of the Islamic Party of
Britain and holds an MBA in Educational Management. In his capacity
as Director of the former charity organisation Muslim Education
Services he contributed to the curriculum development and a joint
approach for Muslim schools and began his political activities in
Britain with a high-profile campaign to gain public recognition for
Muslim schools in the UK. The experiences during this campaign,
together with feed-back from other activities, led him and other
Muslims resident in the UK to the realisation that Muslims had
neglected the need for public advocacy of Islamic solutions and
lacked the political clout necessary to achieve recognition. In
order to focus on Islamic answers to the various problems of modern
Western society they formed the Islamic Party of Britain as the
first proper political expression of Islam in the UK, aiming to use
the political arena for the propagation of the Islamic model as well
encouraging Muslims to take up the task of shaping the future of the
society in which they live.
Mustaqim Bleher is well known for his dynamic lectures at
universities and other events throughout the UK and abroad, as well
