The Jamaat in conjunction with the Worcester Crown Court arranged a court visit for a small group of our members during December 2015.

The day was spent as guests of Honourable Judge Abbas Mithani QC and the visiting members were invited to observe actual court proceedings where Judge A Mithani was the presiding Judge.

The team was also invited for lunch and an informal get together with other judges from Worcester Court.

The visiting members found the occasion to be very educational and hopefully this will be a start of future visits to larger courts in the West Midlands.

The visiting members are very grateful to Honourable Judge Abbas Mithani for arranging the visit and for the excellent hospitality afforded to the members of the Jamaat.


Honourable Judge Abbas Mithani (Seating) with (from L to R) Professor Nayab Sultan, Jamaat Head of Finance- Mahmood S Bhogadia, Maulana Mohamed Rashid, Sisters Sabina Kanani and Nahid Roshanali.
