Hashi Mohammed is No 5 Barrister and Journalist who has recently presented ‘Adventures in Social Mobility’ on BBC Radio 4. He arrived to the UK as an immigrant from Somalia and experienced, first hand, life in over-crowded, crime ridden housing estates and educated in under-performing state schools. Yet he ‘made it’ and succeeded to reach where he is today. The narrative is not the same for many of our youth especially Muslims who face many challenges and barriers in breaking through the glass ceilings. In the UK as in the rest of Europe, Muslims are seen through the prism of terrorism and backwardness. Different European models to integrate minority communities especially Muslims have never achieved utopia and recent years multiculturalism, diversity and social cohesion have been under attack rather than being celebrated.
