Nazir Ahmed, Baron Ahmed (born 1958) is a member of the House of Lords, having become the United Kingdom's first Muslim life peer in 1998. Many of his political activities relate to the Islamic community both in the UK and abroad, and he has often attracted controversy. He was a member of the Labour Party, until he was expelled from it on 25 February 2009, after receiving a custodial sentence for dangerous driving.

Early life

Ahmed was born in Mirpur (Azad Kashmir, Pakistan) but soon after his birth his family migrated to the UK, where he was brought up. He attended Spurley Hey Comprehensive school, then Thomas Rotherham Sixth Form College. He studied Public Administration at Sheffield Hallam University and joined the Labour Party when he was 18 years old.


While he worked as a green grocer, he began his political career as a local councillor, with most of his activity centred around the North of England. He founded the British Muslim Councillors' Forum in 1992. Ahmed was also made a Justice of the Peace in the same year and chaired the South Yorkshire Labour Party for some years.


As a resident of Rotherham, Ahmed has spoken on behalf of the communities in that region, particularly the families of the former steelworkers of the 1960s, from the Indian subcontinent who are now second or third generation British. He has expressed that he is anxious to see that these regions continue to live peacefully amidst the growing move towards the far right across Europe, and strives to encourage positive integration into society so that people of all cultures can live together harmoniously.

Born in the region, Ahmed has a personal interest in seeing a peaceful resolve to the ongoing bloody dispute in Kashmir and seeks international mediation to achieve this. As well as being an active figure in the Indian Subcontinent, he has worked on the plight of Muslims around the world ranging from the collapse of former Yugoslavia, to the Chechens and Palestinians. He has been on many delegations to the Arab world, the US, Eastern Europe, Africa, the former states of the USSR and the Far East, meeting with heads of state to discuss their respective problems and how he may be able to assist them.
Ahmed helps with various charitable causes and is on the board of several organisations from local groups such as his position as President of South Yorkshire Victim Support, to international bodies such as his board membership on the SAARC Foundation.

پاکستانی اور جاٹ کی حیثیت سے مجھے آپ پر فخر ہے۔آپ نے برطانیہ میں رہ کر جس طرح مسلم اور پاکستانی کاز کا دفاع کیا ہےوہ دوسروں کے لئے مثال ہے۔آپ نے ثابت کیا ہے کہ آپ کی رگوں میں جاٹ کا خون دوڑ رہا ہے جو کسی مافیا سے نہیں ڈرتا۔اپنے رب پر بھروسہ کرتا ہے۔اللہ آپ کا حامی و مددگار ہو۔امجد چوہدری

I think he can never talk in the interest of a stable Pakistan. People like him will always prefer their new country... We are stupid who believe on Lords... they can't do anything..we will have to save ourselves.
