Zara Mohammed has been re-elected as the Secretary General of the UK’s largest and most diverse Muslim umbrella organization – the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB). After having run the election unopposed, she will hold the post for the next two years i.e., from 2023 to 2025.
The MCB consists of a large network of institutions including over 500 affiliated national, regional and local organisations, mosques, charities and schools.
Every two years, the affiliates elect a Secretary General, Deputy Secretary General and National Council. According to reports, Mohammed Kozbar was elected into the post of DSG after voting concluded last week.
He won the majority of the affiliate votes, beating Lamine Konate, an imam and acting Treasurer of the MCB, who was also running for the post.
Kozbar is a Master’s graduate in Charity Management. He has previously served on the MCB’s National Council and is the Chairman of Finsbury Park Mosque.
Commenting upon the conclusion of AGM 2023, Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB), Zara Mohammed, said, “It has been an honour to serve our communities over the past two years as Secretary General of this great national institution, and to be entrusted with the responsibility to lead for the next two hereafter.
I thank our affiliates for engaging and upholding MCB’s internal democracy through the election process, and outgoing Office Bearers and National Council members for their exemplary service.
“I welcome DSG Mohammed Kozbar into post, and look forward to working alongside him, our incoming National Council (2023-2025) and Office Bearers to continue serving the MCB’s network of affiliates across the UK, and the wider British Muslim communities of which they are a part.”
