Our early history at Leeds

Ya Ali Madad.

I thought you might be interested in learning about our early days at Leeds- I was a medical student there beginning 1970-we had a few other Ismaili students there that year including Sulli Karmaili(PhD Chemistry), Amin Juma (Accountancy) and Mehboob murji (Engineering), Amin Rajani(Textiles). Beginning October 1970 we met at the residencies of the various students until we formalised arrangements. We used to meet thereafter at the church opposite the Parkinson Library. Our early jamati leadership included Sulli Karmaili,Mehboob Murji,Salma Hassam.We used to have students from Huddersfield join us for special events.After the Ugandan expulsion we had families settled in ┬╗Yorkshire who would come down for friday prayers from York Wetherby etc.Please be in touch if you need any more info about those long gone days!!

Early JK Leeds

Hi Zaheer:

I was at York Uni from 1977-80 and used to attend JK in Leeds. Mukhiani was Nasim and there were students from Bradford and Huddersfield.

I remember Mehboob Bhaloo who is here in Toronto and Alfie who was from Mombasa.

I am looking for Salim and Alnoor Bhanji who lived in York and their father worked at the chocolate factory there. if anyone has their contact. Please email me at fazilet1@gmail.com

Thank you

Correct location of Leeds-Bradford Jamat Khana

Correct adddress for the area is Batley and not Matley.
