School principal Mr Muhammad Reza Ebrahim graduated with a masters in education. Ebrahim’s dissertation explored the potential contribution of Jalaludin Rumi’s (1207-1273) work to Freirean emancipatory adult education.

Adopting a post-colonial lens, his study evaluated the misrepresentation of Islam, Sufism and Rumi by some scholars and writers in the West. ‘Apart from claims by a small group of post-colonial scholars that Rumi was a radical philosopher and social activist, the majority portray him as a poet-saint,’ said Ebrahim.
