The coveted The Muslim News Awards for Excellence will be held on Wednesday 25 March in central London in what is promised to be an inspiring evening of Muslim talent and their contributions to British society.

Among those shortlisted for Britain’s most prestigious Muslim awards this year includes cricketer Moeen Ali, BBC journalist Shabnam Bashir Mahmood and artist Maryam Golubeva

Messages of support for the event have been sent by major party leaders.

Prime Minister, David Cameron, who attended the event last year, said: “Britain’s Muslim communities make an incredible contribution to this country. We see it around us, every single day – in our schools and our hospitals, in businesses and in the arts. The Muslim News Awards for Excellence does a fantastic job of honouring those who go above and beyond – people of whom our country can be truly proud.”

Labour Leader, Ed Miliband, who will be attending the event this year, said: “These award ceremonies are so important because they recognise the immense contribution that Muslims make across Britain make to our country. What I am really struck is the sheer diversity of the Muslim contribution to our national life. The recipients of these awards are role models to the younger Muslim generation, who I hope will take inspiration from the success and dedication of tonight’s awards.”

Liberal Democrat Leader, Nick Clegg, said: “This ceremony is a prestigious event organised by a highly respected publication. I would like to take this chance to pay tribute to the vision, inspiration and hard work of all the Muslim entrepreneurs who are helping to make our economy stronger, and those community heroes and education pioneers who are making our society fairer.”

Ahmed J Versi, Editor, The Muslim News said: “As in previous years, we have been humbled by the quality and the quantity of entries for each category of award. With the huge focus on bad news stories when it comes to Islam and British Muslims, it is all the more important that we recognise those Muslims among us who are doing great things to transform the lives of their communities and society.

We should honour and celebrate the exemplary work of the men, women and children present among us tonight.”
