Blackburn mayor rapped over leaflet logo

This Is Lancashire: COUN SALIM MULLA COUN SALIM MULLA

THE mayor of Blackburn has been rapped by council officials after a charity used Blackburn with Darwen Council’s logo on its leaflet without seeking permission first.

Coun Salim Mulla has chosen to support the renal unit at Royal Blackburn Hospital as his mayoral charity, and is hoping to raise £40,000 in 2014 to buy one or possibly two kidney dialysis machines for the hospital.

But the mayor has also done a lot of work with Blackburn-based charity Al-Imdaad Foundation UK, including handing out presents at Newfield School, and taking a trip to Syria to officially open a purpose-built village for refugees.

To support his appeal the charity put out leaflets, which bore the council’s logo, asking people to donate money to fund the dialysis machines.

The logo was apparently taken from the council website, without express permission being sought from council officers.

But Hafez Abdussamad Mulla, Al-Imdaad’s country director, said all the leaflets had already been distributed, but nobody from the council had approached the charity to voice any concerns.

He said: “We sit with the mayor once a month at the mayor’s parlour to discuss how we can help to raise funds for the appeal.

“A few months ago we agreed we would print these leaflets, and we did, but no concerns were raised at the meeting.

“If it was a problem you’d think it would have been mentioned at the meeting. We’ve had no issues up to now and we’ve been doing quite well with raising funds for the appeal.”

Coun Mulla said he was unable to comment on the issue.

Coun Kate Hollern, leader of Blackburn with Darwen Council, said: “The Al-Imdaad Foundation UK is doing very valuable work alongside other volunteers of the Mayor’s charity committee. Its role is to support the Mayor’s charity but it is separate from the Mayor’s official role.”

So a man, elected as a councillor, then elected Mayor, may sit in the Mayoral office, discussing the Mayors favoured charity, whilst serving tea, using the Mayoral tea service, may not use the Borough Council logo to signify his support. Perhaps it's time for the Mayor, whilst in office, to have his own personal coat of arms. Or better yet, that Mayoral robes be tailored from cloth, coloured, to suit the incumbent.
Am thinking a shade of iridescent Chalcanthite, which I'm sure that you all know is, copper sulphate pentahydrate, which we all used to grow crystals from, when at school. Of course, this colour is highly appropriate to the current Mayor, as he seems to attract a certain amount of vitriol. Which, is produced by oxidizing copper, in hot concentrated sulphuric acid, to produce oil of vitriol. This could form the background colour to a pound of flesh, stretched on tenterhooks, over a glowing tandoor, to distinguish it from some other cracked old pot, whom is soon to hold the title...

You can not count all Muslim are gaining more power on the local councils.
You can say power holding by asian local councillors through Labour Group
Thats why they always get away even now if you read Kate comments up above she is backing up MR Mulla
I think people of Blackburn have to think if Labour Councillor are not going towards right direction then try different Party. Before too late.

There are 45 labour councillors in Blackburn with Darwen the councillor like Mr MULLA is abusing his position in the name of Charity that is why we need strong opposition in councils to stop this misuse of council’s resources

The way i see it, and i stand corrected, if you use a company logo on your private dealings, it suggests that company endorses both morally and possibly financially, their support for your private dealings.

So is this council supporting the mayors private dealings from taxpayers money, or are they against his dealings,i cannot work this one out?

maybe i am stupid, please tell me!

My point is that once they get a foothold then the end game is sharia law. I firmly believe a Muslim political party will soon be founded in the UK. Galloway's Respect Party was a forerunner to that and currently Muslims are using the Labour Party to set down markers but once their own party is formed-that will happen once enough numbers are in this country to win local and regional seats on councils-then the long road to sharia will be underway. I predict sharia to be an equal or overall law in the UK by 2050. Birthrate will see to that.

The bigger question should be, what on earth is a convicted benefit cheat and serial disability claimant doing as a Mayor? A position that used to carry great honour, this man is only interested in the furtherance of his own agenda what does he do for the non Muslims in Blackburn?
