The Muslim Weekly reports on the OBE received by Dr Musharraf Hussain:
"A Halifax man who is director of an Islamic school has been awarded an OBE for his services to community relations.
Musharraf Hussain, pictured, won the gong in the latest honours list and will be invited to Buckingham Palace to receive it.
Dr Hussain, who was born and lived in Halifax until the age of 18, now lives in Nottingham, where he is a member of the Muslim Council of Britain, an iman and the principal of an Islamic school.
Dr Hussain was picked to be part of a team sent to Iraq to try to help when Liverpool man Ken Bigley was taken hostage in 2004.
Dr Hussain is director of the Karimia Institute in Nottingham – a centre for worship, education, training and self-development that works on projects ranging from community development to adult classes and interfaith work."
