The Official Video of the Bristol Muslim Conference 2023!
The fully booked Conference held at the Seat Unique Stadium at the Gloucestershire County Cricket Ground.
The Conference on Saturday 4th November opened with a prayer and one minute silence for the victims of the Isreal-Palestine war.
Keynote speeches were kicked off by PCC Mark Shelford, Dr Wajid Akhter from the Muslim Council of Britain and Azeem Rafiq the former Professional. He spoke of his journey and the racism he faced but also the way he has found his calling to help people achieve their dreams. Baroness Sayeeda Warsi spoke of the significant part British Muslims play in society. This was followed by a lunchtime Q&A session by the Baroness on the Israel-Palestine war.
Participants were able to contribute their views through the five Diamond 9 Workshops and then treated to a gourmet lunch.
The afternoon session consisted of a Panel session with local doctor Asha Mohamed, Omer Khaliel from Riba Foundation and Mohammed Sayaqle from the Somali Youth Forum.
The winner of the challenge question 'If I was in charge of Bristol, I would...' was Fasiha Husseini winning a hospitality box for 10 people for the New Zealand vs England Women's game next season!!
All in all, it was a fantastic event. Thank you Bristol!
