Naz Bokhari’s former pupil, Shadow Justice Secretary Rt Hon Sadiq Khan MP talks about his former head teacher and role model at his conference speech.
‘And because of Labour school governors and a Labour education authority, one of the country’s first Asian heads was appointed to my school. Naz Bokhari. He transformed the school. He became my role model and mentor. Helping me realise your skin colour or background wasn’t a barrier to making something with your life.’
