Statement from ASSU President Abdullah Shihipar.
Inna lilahi wa ina ilayhi rajioon.
I was saddened to hear of the tragic loss of FOSIS (Federation of Student Islamic Societies – the equivalent of the Muslim Students’ Association in the UK) President, Bashir Osman yesterday and offer my deepest condolences to his family and friends and FOSIS. Bashir, was a committed activist and advocate for Muslim students in Britain. He will inshallah be remembered for all of the good work he did for his community, for his fellow students and for humanity.
As a global community of students, the work one does in one country has a far reaching impact on us all. Students and Muslim students in particular have lost a great friend and advocate.
