In light of recent horrific times including last weeks attack on the West Minster, Zafran said,” I feel honored to have received this award as Special Role model for other British Muslims at a time when there is such negativity surrounding Islam and Muslims due to sickening actions by those who play no part to any religion. My message to everyone is show people how good your religion is by showing them how good your character is and before that you need to display that you are a good human being. We need to spread peace.We stay united..We Win We Divide…They Win.”
