Muslim Burial Ground Peace Garden Commemoration Service

A great honour to be asked by Will Forster, Mayor of Woking, to join the Commemoration Service and lay a wreath in memory of all Muslim soldiers who gave their lives for Britain in both World Wars. Sheikh Abdul Wahab, the first soldier to be buried at the Woking Garden, was also honoured in the service. A moving poem by Omer Tarin, a family member of Sikandar Khan who was buried at this site, was read quite beautifully by Madeleine McClements, a student from Woking high School.
