BMWA Revival Event

posted 4 Oct 2009, 18:58 by Admin BMWA   [ updated 26 Sep 2010, 13:53 by Hasan Siddiqui ]

Ahamdulillah the event on Sunday 4 October 2009 has been a great milestone for the steering committee. There was great turn around of members of public from various different nationalities and origins. Even with some technical issues with sunlight dimming down the projector slides and sometime noise from children running around, everybody seemed to listen attentively. The passionate question and answer session suggested how strongly people feel about the issues.

The entire power point slides presented are now available for download below.

BMWA Constitution (Draft) for public consultation

posted 4 Oct 2009, 18:39 by Admin BMWA   [ updated 14 Oct 2009, 03:39 ]

In January 1998 the existing trustees started off the BMWA revival process by establishing a steering committee led by Br Shuaib as Chairman and Br Rehan as secretary. On of their task was to produce a revised version of the consitution. The old constitution was no longer fit for purpose as it was written before Albirr came to provide a mosque. The original aim of Islamic Society of Basingstoke to build a mosque was no longer applicable and the recent increase in the Muslims living in the area meant many other factors have taken more importance than originally anticipated.

It took a long time, but now the revised version of the constitution is made available for public consultation and can be downloaded by clicking the following icon:
