I’ve known Ibrahim for going on a decade, and he was worked tirelessly during that time to promote discussion of Kurdish issues in Parliament, in the media, and pretty much everywhere else, and I’m glad he’s been so successful with this. The British Kebab Awards, which he set up a few years ago, received widespread coverage in national newspapers earlier this year: http://www.britishkebabawards.co.uk/
There are so many interesting events taking place every day in London, organised by the capital’s remarkably diverse communities, but sadly not covered by traditional news media – though Ibrahim, of course, is an exception.
Thanks to South London Press for publishing my story about these awards. My hope is that many more local newspapers, which are surely crying out for more readers, follow its example.
