Merger with Reading Muslim Council

Reading Muslim was founded by Imtiaz Chowdhury & Jubair Khan in 2018, and held discussions with Trustees of Reading Muslim Council since its inception to align and cooperate together. Reading Muslim Council was founded in 1995 and had slowly become less active and engaged over time. The vision, mission and goals of both organisations are largely the same, and merging allows Reading Muslim Council to refreshen the charity’s activities in the area, and provides a legal framework for Reading Muslim. Reading Muslim Council held an AGM on 25th March 2022 to formally approve the motion.

The founders of Reading Muslim have joined the Executive Committee as Trustees of the charity, along with Tahira Kulsoom, Soha Hafez, and Saif Maher. The merged group will drop the ‘Council’ in its name to be rebranded as ‘Reading Muslim’ and remain registered charity number 1061208 in England & Wales.

Mobile apps indefinitely deleted

Unfortunately our iOS app did not get approved to become available on Apple’s App Store, due to not providing enough additional functionality that Apple requires all apps to fulfil. For now, this means we’re going to pull our Android app from the store as well, and we’ll refocus our communication efforts through this website and our Telegram channel,

We would be grateful for any donations towards our future projects, which includes creating more holistic native apps from scratch.
