Sahib 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.

Sahib Mustaqim Bleher is well known for his dynamic lectures at universities and other events throughout the UK and abroad, as well as numerous pamphlets, dealing with topics on education, Islamic economics, politics, Muslim strategy and other issues of contemporary interest. He is presently working on a plain language English translation of the Qur’an.

Amongst the hobbies of Sahib Mustaqim Bleher is aviation. He holds a CAA PPL, IMC and Night Rating, and an FAA Instrument Rating.

Sahib Mustaqim Bleher is also a 5th Kyu in Kyokoshinkai Karate, and is currently studying Tai Chi Chuan.
