A MUSLIM chaplain at West Midlands Police has received his MBE medal from Princess Anne at Windsor Castle.

Mohammad Asad was handed his award for his volunteer work throughout the pandemic.

As well as being a faith advisor for the force, Mohammad is also an Imam at Birmingham Central Mosque.

During the pandemic, he helped to distribute hundreds of much-needed items to hospital workers on the frontline battling Covid.

Mohammad also played a key role in running outreach projects at Birmingham Central Mosque and the community, including delivering iftar meals for the homeless and refugees during Ramadan.

Some of the projects included Qur’an cubes for hospital patients and delivering iftar and toiletry packs to NHS workers.

He also helped with food donations to victims of domestic violence and food packs for those isolated in the pandemic.

Khadija Sulaiman, the Multi-Faith Lead Chaplainfor the force, said: “Mohammed Asad is a great asset to the team. He is a perfect example of the representation of the Multi Faith Chaplaincy team of West Midlands Police.

“One of our objectives is the integration into the communities, which I think is imperative to support West Midlands Police. When I see what Mr Asad has showcased, it makes me feel so proud to lead a fantastic team.”
