Although I’m now Minister for Justice, working along side the Lord Chancellor, Jack Straw, who send his good wishes, I was until three weeks ago Minister for International Development. [...] It’s also been a privilege working with Islamic Relief. Muslim Aid, Muslim Hands, and many others. Come on, a round of applause for the Muslim NGO’s!
[...] My work as International Development Minister has resulted over the next three years with the UK assisting Bangladesh to the tune of 370 Million Pounds, Pakistan Inshallah 480 Million Pounds, Palestine Inshallah 243 Million Pounds, Yemen in access of 100 Million Pounds, not to mention Sudan and Somalia.
I’m proud of the achievements of the Muslims of this country from -97. In 1997 we got our first Muslim MP. In 2001 we had two Muslim MP‘s. Im 2005 we had four Muslim MP’s. Inshallah in 2009 we’ll have 8 Muslim MP’s. In 2014 we’ll have 16 Muslim MP’s. At this rate the whole Parliament would be Muslim! [...] But you know, we got four Muslim MP’s, there should be 20 Muslim MP’s, and Inshallah very shortly we’ll see that. And I’m confident, as Britains first Muslim Minister, that Inshallah in the next 30 years or so we’ll see a Prime Minister in this country who happens to share my faith.
Today we’re showing the true face of Islam. [...] Our future in this country is very bright. Thank you very much.
