Welcome to my website.
I believe that every child has unique potential and as a Liberal I want to work to ensure that Liberal ladders of opportunity are planted so everyone can reach their potential.
I want you to join with me to ensure that a strong diverse Liberal Democrat voice is heard here in Leeds and nationally to champion those opportunities.
One of the greatest things about the Liberal Democrats is that they believe that no one shall be enslaved by conformity. I believe that this is a great Liberal value and that we should all shout about from the rooftops and say to every child born: be who you want to be, do what you want to do and don’t let society tell you who you are or put barriers in your way to what you can achieve.
I am proud that this country is enriched with diversity and that people are given equal opportunities to succeed irrespective of their gender, religion, race, colour, disability, sexual orientation or gender identity. I believe in building bridges between the various communities and not creating walls. And throughout my life, I am proud to say I have brought people together.
I was lucky to be born into a Liberal family. And it is the liberal values that I want my two young children to learn as they grow up in this world. As parents, we want our children to enjoy the benefits that we have enjoyed, from having a good education to travelling abroad. And a good education is a key to opening doors.
I was lucky to have attended local catholic schools. I was the first in my family to attend university. I am now a managing partner in a Headingley (Leeds) based law firm and have recently been nationally recognised for my work. I am proud to have beaten off competition from across the UK to win The British Muslim Awards 2018.
I am passionate about Europe and was privileged to lead the EU Referendum Campaign for Yorkshire and Humber Liberal Democrats. I believe that we are stronger, safer and better together and our children should continue to enjoy the opportunities that we have taken for granted.
The British public are quite right to be worried about the future. Brexit has brought uncertainty, NHS is lacking the funding it needs, and we are becoming less safe in our communities. In our proud nation, divisions sadly do exist, between the rich and poor, north and south and of course leave and remain areas. Brexit has brought these differences to the forefront. The Conservative Government, which is engulfed in deep divisions has made a mess of the negotiations. And our children will suffer the consequences.
I believe the Government must rise above internal political divisions and work with others to ensure that we can reach a deal that is both workable and in the interests of our children. And the deal, should ultimately be put to the people in a people’s vote. And if the people decide that the deal is not good enough, then they should have the option to Exit from Brexit and remain in the European Union.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my website.
“Kamran is an approachable person and listens before expressing his views. In the short time he has been Chair of the Yorkshire and Humber Lib Dems the organisation has started to move forward in a positive way, as he has set a vision and ensured that he and the team deliver. He sees the skills and abilities in people and encourages them to develop them.
“As the first Liberal Democrat Councillor in Rotherham since 2000, Kamran’s support to the local team in Rotherham over the years has been invaluable. His encouragement and guidance to me personally has been key to helping me build a winning team in Rotherham.”
“A hardworking Liberal Democrat and forceful advocate of Liberalism, who is determined to serve the whole community."
“I first met Kamran some 20 years ago and have followed his development as a person and a campaigner. He is most impressive on both counts. He is a liberal to his core and brings a passion, determination and integrity to his politics which makes him a great asset for the Liberal Democrats.”
“I have campaigned with Kamran across Yorkshire over several years and worked with him on strengthening our coverage in regional media. He is a well-informed Liberal, with a good grasp of local and national politics."
