6:24 pm
right now my grandson in college so i know he's coming in the last six months and we hope that we can train him to take over for me to carry on to do shrooms to carry on the service for the people who are you know under his. moment i'm. going to. want to be i want. my dad and. mom i do know. that you know. others. will be much more.
6:25 pm

6:26 pm
to do this and i didn't know whether it was just because it was an easy option because you. just. really want to do it to. really enjoy doing. so my dad's a big character and it's really difficult because for twenty years over twenty years we struck we saw a stopping father and daughter and became business partners which challenge to stomach lay how i was dealing with him and talking to him and there's this very much disrespect thing. and we deal with things very very differently i was in partnership with my dad only up until recently. who know was here for twenty years and she decided to achieve would stand back for a while because maybe she wanted to direct her to trust in funerals and i was standing in her way we have women coming here their husbands have died and they can
6:27 pm
relate to a woman better than they can a man especially with asian women so we need a woman's touch here and i think he will be coming back. we have about thirty thousand plus muslim population here in the white chapel east london area and this is always been the kind of melting pot of southern england. you know them love you play polo visit the mosque every now and name and not only did i go. to the extent the most trouble the bit of a troll but islands. lovely little towns and causing quite a. they came the day was. consoled by the i think it was the it was the other night temperature leading to for what great britain's first was privileged to be in london i was speech she might be in belfast is someone that isn't and you always assume it's because the kids in the.
6:28 pm
working quite street was closed off because you had to buy and go to the same time i'm sure it was no for an era and you know i don't live in the area. something. well let me know what the it's simply you know the day and if you engage me we work together we go on to give a what. i want from me in the middle well. we all respect one another's views yeah to a point of we disagree sometimes but we don't ram as you spend people's fronts. the way i do you can't be fearful just in case you have you know that. when the downy i'm not ok and think we're going to happen is it going to happen yeah especially when you go to kate's.
6:29 pm
what i could. to get to your original question yes you have to give them the original green certificate last year which is slowing this country you have to have the greens and difficult original ok i do problems give me a ring but i think you're going by. you only bury somebody once and people remember things when they go wrong weddings and funerals and if you do it right the way my dad used to do it then that's good and if you do it wrong those people will never forget you and will always curse you. too. this is the picture of dad and me. yeah when i was about five years of age because my father it wasn't very happy about having photographs taken when mothers in the sari and i'm sure this was about nineteen fifty six this was taken.
6:30 pm
around about the mid sixty's when there was an influx of muslim people arriving here in east london mainly bangladeshis or at that time it was east pakistan. the need for a funeral service grew so my father purchased a black ambulance van and started to do the funerals here in london. tasneem army was only seventeen is anyone he deputized this far his father was away on pilgrimage to mecca i grew up here in this area and we had this phenomena called bashing we had right wing groups coming along looking for asians to beat up just for the sake of it. my father was beaten up and. it wasn't what wasn't a good time in east end of london. my mum was welsh she converted to islam too in
6:31 pm
the second world war with my father she was a coal miner's daughter can you imagine the stigma of a white lady marrying a dark person but she didn't care but i'm also proud to be a bangladeshi as well. oh yeah that's my dad that's my dad roughly. four weeks before he died and a smile when he graduated. and muna when she graduated she sees the world in a different way because being younger than me she can maybe project forward where i don't that's why i think politicians shouldn't be allowed to be politicians after sixty five that some young blood. a far worse away because they got better ideas and see things better than we do we're always thinking in the past and they're
6:32 pm
thinking in the future and that's important so i do miss her yes. today we have the you know gratian of the strong room for the first british muslim archives and guests who want different books of life have come to join us in the celebrations of this kind of pivotal moment. hygene taslima setup the country's first and indeed it was europe's first muslim burial service we hopefully can to see and the family members coming in. we're starting at five

6:34 pm
to give him some idea of what went on. a bit of excitement in the room very very well come to see may. be mayor of london to city hall. why should one. explaining how my granddad became like a take out a fellow and love in the room for him so many people that i didn't actually know that knew of me or knew who i was came up to speak to me on this one here because that my dad was at the meeting of this. my grandad's. after some heated discussion the bill was approved impossible. at the time mr tessin alley was requested not to do any burials on behalf of the fund before getting prior consent from the on the you know found out my grandfather someone dies bury them quick
6:35 pm
places that's what you make today i think what they're saying there is you need to make sure you get the mission that you're going to get the money. for this. and of course so your family or your contribution. to building this through house is. this is crazy. so he was saying. you can see all the boats of engagement all destroyed i pulled away from calcutta to london to. see women come up to the grounds go back to calcutta rotterdam back in at my gran that was in birkenau. holding my dad and i go it started him oh really. white kid. because my dad is i am back then there were many makes us that bombay but i've seen the muslim community grown so much specially in the
