He is Imam at Eton College and founded The Oxford Foundation, a charity that promotes religious and racial harmony through (mainly) educational and arts-based programmes. He has devised, pioneered and successfully piloted a unique educational programme confronting violent extremist ideology, aspects of which have been published and the programme has also been utilised to train RE teachers in the UK.
