Sahib Mustaqim Bleher
Sahib Mustaqim Bleher is a founder member of the Islamic Party of Britain and currently serves as its general secretary and education spokesman. He also edits the party magazine Common Sense.
He was born in 1959 in Heidelberg, Germany, where during his school days he took an interest in newspaper journalism which became his later career. After converting to Islam in 1980 he changed his line of work to typesetting and reprographics, and later went into publishing. He has translated several titles of Islamic Literature from Arabic to German and presently maintains a small publishing enterprise in the UK, where he lives with his wife and children since 1982.
Professionally, Sahib Mustaqim Bleher now mostly works as translator and interpreter; he holds a Diploma in Translation and is a Member of the Institute of Linguists.
Sahib Mustaqim Bleher began his political activities in Britain with a high-profile campaign to gain public recognition for Muslim schools in the UK. The experiences during this campaign together with feed-back from other activities led him and other Muslims resident in the UK to realise that Muslims had neglected the need for public advocacy of Islamic solutions and lacked the political clout necessary to achieve recognition and focus attention on Islamic answers to the various problems of modern Western society. This eventually resulted in the formation of the Islamic Party of Britain as the first proper political expression of Islam in the UK, aiming to use the political arena for the propagation of the Islamic model as well encouraging Muslims to take up the the task of shaping the future of the society in which they live.
Sahib Mustaqim Bleher is well known for his dynamic lectures at universities and other events throughout the UK and abroad, as well as numerous pamphlets, dealing with topics on education, Islamic economics, politics, Muslim strategy and other issues of contemporary interest.
Amongst the hobbies of Sahib Mustaqim Bleher is aviation. He holds a British PPL with IMC and Night Rating. He is willing to fly free of charge for charities. He also serves as Imam at his local prison.
