Imran Ahmad Khan has become the first Ahmadi to be elected as a British MP after his historic UK General Election win. Khan won from his home constituency of Wakefield by gaining 21,283 votes.
Imran Khan is also related to Karim Asad Ahmad Khan, who was recently appointed by the United Nations to lead an investigation into ISIS crimes in Iraq.
In a facebook post Imran Khan said:
I was born in Wakefield and went to school here. I am a proud Yorkshireman. You may remember by late father, he was Wakefield’s only consultant dermatologist. My English mother trained in Wakefield as a State Registered Nurse and midwife, and my grandmother, Joyce Reynolds was a Staff Sister at Pinderfields.
After his election win Khan paid a visit to the local Ahmadiyya Mosque and met local community members.
