A statement from the National President, Megan Dunn, on the death of FOSIS President Bashir Osman
On behalf of NUS and students' union officers and activists around the country it is with great sadness that I offer my deepest condolences to FOSIS (Federation of Student Islamic Societies) on the tragic loss of your President, Bashir Osman. Under Bashir's leadership for the past year, and earlier as Vice President, FOSIS has grown and become one of the leading sources of talented activists, and supporting many to represent students across the country in their students' unions and NUS. FOSIS' work, securing the rights for the Muslim community, fundraising and developing people are a testament to Bashir's commitment and life.
People from across the country and internationally are leaving statements in Bashir's memory on Facebook, and I encourage you all to read them and join them as the movement reflects on the life of a dedicated and talented young person. https://www.facebook.com/tributestobashir?pnref=story
