A Muslim man Imtiaz Hussein who was suffering from severe financial problems attempted to kill himself in a Slough Tesco by cutting his throat.
Fortunately the first aiders in Tesco and the Paramedics stemmed the flow of blood thus saving his life.
Hussein who has a young family is indicative of a wider problem not just in the Muslim community ie people suffering from financial and or mental health issues during these challenging economic times.
One hopes that within the Muslim community we get our act together and ensure the appropriate mechanisms are in place in the community to help alleviate some of the growing difficulties fellow Muslims are going through particularly those that have been made redundant with responsibility for young families.
Sadly many Muslims are left with the usual bunch of unsympathetic goons who run our mosques being entirely ill equipped to deal with the considerable difficulties many deserving members of the Muslim community are facing.
