JAMIYAT BODMIN STREET
In 1968, Janab Wali Muhammad, Ali Haider, Ch Karam Dad, Haji Muhammad Saddique and Ch Muhammad Iqbal managed to buy the church building which is now better known as Jamiyat Bodmin Street.
The trustees of the project were forced out of the mosque by a Deobandi Tablighee group. When Jamiyat Shirland Lane was established, the trustees became the active members. In 1976, with the support of the Jamiyat Shirland Lane and Jamiyat Southfield Sq BD8, the trustees approached the Charity Commission for reinstatement. In a public meeting supervised by Charity Commission it was decided to establish Jamiyat Bodmin Street. New trust documents were approved by the Charity Commission for this purpose. Jamiyat Bodmin Street was being refurbished when Jamiyat Shirland lane was destroyed by fire. Jamiyat Shirland lane decided to join Jamiyat Bodmin Street.
