The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) has elected its first female secretary general.
Ms Mohammed is also the first Scottish secretary general of the MCB.
She added: “I think women sometimes hesitate to take on leadership roles even though they are more than qualified to do so. “It is really important to engage young people, engage more women and diversify the organisation and the work we are doing.”
She said: “We want to challenge misinformation and we want to continue to promote the guidance, the clarity and reassure the community as part of the united and national effort. “So definitely promoting the vaccine, encouraging our communities to follow the guidance and keep safe. So that will definitely be at the forefront of the work we are continuing doing.”
She succeeded Harun Khan, who completed the maximum of four years as the head of the organisation.
