First Mus­lim Mayor

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - MUHAMMAD HUS­SAIN

British cit­i­zen of Pak­istani ori­gin Sadiq Khan has been elected as the first Mus­lim Mayor in London’s whole his­tory. He de­feated the can­di­date of the Con­ser­va­tive Party, Zach Gold­smith, a mem­ber of the bil­lion­aire fam­ily of the United King­dom. Sadiq Khan has good ideas, Labour Democrats and Greens given voted for to him. He is a hu­man rights lawyer by pro­fes­sion, and also a Mem­ber of the British Par­lia­ment. He is the son of a Pak­istani bus driver. We con­grat­u­late Sadiq Khan from the core of our heart.

Now, Sadiq Khan, will as­sume re­spon­si­bil­ity of ad­min­is­ter­ing the busi­ness of one of the big­gest and most de­vel­oped cap­i­tals of Europe. Europe does not change its man­age­ment sys­tem in the world; So Sadiq Khan may face ad­min­is­tra­tive dif­fi­cul­ties of any kind. How­ever, the real test awaits, he be­ing a Mus­lim will face a big chal­lenge of dis­crim­i­nat­ing lob­bies in the con­text of the con­tem­po­rary Mus­lim world sce­nario. Af­ter be­ing Mayor of London City Sadiq Khan has been as pow­er­ful and strong per­son­al­ity. The Euro­pean is the neg­a­tive per­cep­tion of Mus­lims. He is in­tel­li­gent, en­joys pop­u­lar sup­port and will be able to prove his met­tle in the Euro­pean and non-Mus­lim mind­sets. Sadiq Khan would hope­fully be able to re­move all mis­un­der­stand­ings in the world and would be a suc­cess. —Via email
