Lutfur Rahman the first directly-elected Mayor of the London borough of Tower Hamlets

I have noticed in the English press discussions about Lutfur Rahman… and now in the Finnish Helsinki Times…

Lutfur Rahman is a community activist and local politician in London, England. He became the first directly elected mayor of Tower Hamlets in 2010, having previously been the leader of Tower Hamlets London Borough Council from 2008 to 2010 and he is a committed Muslim!

He is an interesting example of how even in Britain there is a clear misunderstanding and mistrust towards Muslims… and people of other faiths and backgrounds
