  1. I would just like to say that I believe that some of the present mosque committee representatives are not in any way or form benefiting the mosque as they are a bunch of hypocrites who have been embezzling the mosques funds for their own financial benefit.

    1. Thank you for your post. You make a rather serious allegation that would require more information like names, amounts, dates and actual evidence/proof/witnesses of the financial fraud. Numerous people have suspicions and rumors circulate of mismanagement, underhand and unethical goings on, but unfortunately no-one has been brave enough to come forward with something concrete. If you can provide information then we can take action against the individuals involved.

  2. Asalamolaykum dear brothers.. Just to let the community of Reading know what is really going on in the South Street Mosque committee. There is widespread abuse of public funds in the tune of tens of thousands of pounds which is being used to fund personal projects in Pakistan. One member of the committee has used the mosque’s money to buy a property in Lahore.

      ..Please contact me in confidence to discuss best way forward to ensure we can get enough information to name and shame the individuals involved, to ensure they never hold such position again and more importantly to have enough evidence/proof to be able to prosecute them in court.

      I look forward to your response.

      Wassallamu alaikum wa rahmatullah

  3. Salamo laykum
    I write this post to inform the mosque committee and anyone else who is interested,that Aftab Qadri who is a member of the mosque committee is not an appropriate person to be involved in the running of the mosque. He has committed Zina in the past, does not have a recognized Islamic relationship with his “wife” has embezzled tens of thousands of pounds from his own family and other associates has encouraged his alchoholic brother and other members of his family to harm, harass and cause criminal damage to his mothers’ household. And worse of all has disowned his own mother because she is suffering with an incurable disease and doesn’t want to care for her as she is “hard work” and eats too much. All of these can be proved if necessary.
    With these facts at your disposal I request that Aftab be removed from his position as he should get his own house in order before he tries to help in the mosque management. I believe the people should know the truth about him. I have spoken to Haji Banaras but he doesn’t want to do anything because his daughter is married to his son! ( Aftab didn’t even invite his own mother to the marriage of his son).
    The mosque is better off without him and I believe the vision of a purpose built mosque for the people of Reading is within reach if more suitable and honest persons are in charge.

  4. Assalamilaykum, I’m writing this post just to give the mosque a bit of background about Aftab Quadri who is the secretary of the mosque committee. The named has not bothered to see his ill mother for nearly a year now because he doesn’t want to take her to his house if she wants him to because “she eats too much” and “smells” are his exact words. He wants his mother to be placed in a care home to spend her last days. Aftab has accused me of stealing my mothers money and giving it to my in laws in Pakistan. How dare he makes remarks like that. It is a common fact that it was him and his partners’ parents in Pakistan who begged and stole from my late fathers property. Also it was Aftab who conned a poor man (a father of 10 daughters) Mr Haji Mubarak (close friend of Haji Khalid, Newtown Motors) out of his life savings to buy land in Pakistan which didn’t materialize. The poor mans family are still waiting for their land or money. There are many other examples of Aftabs greed and dishonest behavior to mention. I would like to remind the committee and any person concerned that I haven’t stolen any of my mothers money and will never put my mother in a care home. I will continue to look after my mother and receive her dwah’s, inshallah. Unlike Aftab and his Alcholic Brother Mahtab.
    For these reasons I request that Aftab is removed from his position in the mosque committee as I believe he is not the proper person fit for the job and hope the Chairman will act in the interests of the community.

    1. To simplify matters, following is my understanding of the allegations made by Shabaz:

      (1) Aftab has committed Zina in the past
      (2) Aftab does not have a recognized Islamic relationship with his “wife”
      (3) Aftab has embezzled money from his own family and other associates
      (4) Aftab has encouraged people to harm, harass and cause criminal damage to his mothers’ household and has disowned his mother
      (6) Aftab conned a poor man out of his life savings to buy land in Pakistan which didn’t materialize.

      To me this appears to be a dispute between family members and most of the allegations are rather subjective. I feel the mosque can only pursue this, if enough evidence is presented of financial mismanagement or fraud of the mosque funds.
