Secretary General of the British Muslim Forum and chief adviser on equality issues to former British PM Tony Blair, the India-born Azmi is the antithesis of many polarising supremists masquerading as Islamic preachers. And he does not hesitate to knock one such in the city.

“I am speaking in English here because that is the language the Mumbai-based preacher uses to misguide young, educated Muslims,” declared Azmi to the congregation of Sunni Muslims at Azad Maidan last Sunday. “I have to reply to this dangerous voice.”
