Update Justice for Shukri - Inquest ongoing

Salaams. I just wanted to introduce myself as one of the team from the Justice4Shukri campaign in memory of Shukri Abdi (Rahmatullah alaih) who drowned in the River Irwell last June in Bury, Greater Manchester. Alot of confusion has been made in terms of how this campaign was started so I would like to post an article regarding my own involvement and also articles from The Guardian who have followed the Inquest which started last Monday 24th February.

Good info :nvjpqts:

I would like to remind everyone that the UK is still a very racist country. From Careers to Justice; us Somalis should never think otherwise and try to waste energy and time to “correct” things as that is the way they are.

Without pressure this case will be swept under the rug.

I hope the kid gets justice. Very unfortunate.

More people needs to be aware of this. Is sad i still havent seen shukri abdi story on the news only online smh please update us on anything
 
We have experienced hostility from a few within the Somali community who did not want/like us helping the family. The confusion for us as asians and of mixed race backgrounds was why, when our focus and aim was simply to expose the story as fully as possible as members living in the Bury community and get the story out via a trusted network of journalists, experienced activists and legal representatives who would make sure the family's story was told from their mouths.

Myself and Maz Saleem have not been in paid employment for 8 months to support the family and fight for this inquest in the face of many many obstacles.I dont think many understand how mentally and physically exhausting this has been but we had to do it for the family to get justice.
 
For updates, we have the Justice4Shukri FB page and only use The Guardian's Diane Taylor, 5 Pillars Roshan Salih and Press TV's Rob Carter. They have been an absolutely brilliant support to us and the family in getting their truth out.

Oh I thought you was Somali. Hmm. That is strange, and it is best not to jump to conclusions. They probably have their own reasons for that.

Thanks for the work anyways mate. You are setting a stepping stone for vulnerable Muslim kids in the future kids to not end up like that.

Your sacrifice is greatly appreciated but do not suffer for this as well. Hard work does not = equal productivity.

Make sure to look after yourself too.

thank you for your hard work. don’t let the actions of a few discourage you from doing what is in your power to get this family the justice they deserve. insha allah your sacrifices will all pay off in the end.

Obviously it's a murder, how many somali kids I know that got pushed into a lake by their friends and died. They never catch the culprit because the somali community never press the government. If the kid was white there would have been an investigation into the school and the teachers.

What did she do ??
she almost jeopardized the case and delayed the Inquest. Of it wasn't for her shukri inquest would have been concluded in February but the is to her shukri case is adjourned. She submitted a complaint about shukri mother translation even though her somali translator was fine
