I am sorry my blog posts have been irregular for the last couple of months. I have been travelling and I am trying to finish writing my book.

Please bear with me until I return to my normal routine. Until then, for those of you who didn’t read this, on Friday 05 August it was the 13th anniversary of my arrest so I sent out this small message on social media…

Today is the 13th anniversary of my arrest in London on 05 August 2004.

I spent the next 11 years in prison, including 5yrs in isolation and 2yrs in complete solitary confinement.

I was extradited to the USA where a fair judge looked at all the evidence, including the so-called ‘naval battleship plans’ mentioned in this headline, and then declared that I was not a terrorist.

I was released and returned home to my family in London two years ago in July 2015, all praise be to Allah.

As I look back at my experience I believe that my life is richer today as a result of everything I went through.

Whatever you are going through in your life, know that no hardship lasts forever, there is always an end.

I am a survivor, not a victim.
