New ConstitutionIn: Latest News
Dear Members, Salaamun Alaykum
The current constitution of the KSIMC of London was last studied in 1992. Since then the community has grown and times have moved forward.
It is our contention that we need to revisit our constitution and allow for some major and fundamental changes to be incorporated into it.
The current EC entrusted this to a special team of our community members and also engaged the services of a professional legal firm to help review our current as well as proposed constitution.
Our biggest challenge is to have a balance between the regulations of the Charities Commission of UK as well as abide by our Islamic Sharia guidelines in what we do.
The team has prepared a draft proposed revised constitution that would need feedback and opinions from wide sections of the community.
Our first consultation had been with past leaders of the community and we are scheduled to have consultations with the youths, ladies and the general public members of the community.
As we progress with our consultations, please find a draft copy that can be downloaded by clicking here.
We would like to receive your comments on the proposed revised constitution so that we are synchronised in our thoughts and vision by the time we have our Constitutional Conference to adopt this new constitution.
To save time on the day of the conference, we would appreciate your feedback in advance. Please write to us on firstname.lastname@example.org with any comments/opinions/suggestions you may have or you may contact our EC member spearheading this task, Dr Munir Datoo.
Salaams and Duas
Secretariat, KSIMC of London
