Learning the muslim way of life

My friend Swainy, Swaindogg, Swainslice – the many alias’s, well his father pictured here was in a recent documentary about the working life within the city of Bradford, my home. He is a prime example of what people within a multicultural city should be like. After working for years as the grave digger for local people, as the local government wouldn’t always be available for certain times etc, and because Muslim burials were hard for the government etc to keep up with, within the city, Graham found a gap in the market. He pounced at the chance of this work throughout a time of recession and depression within the city, one man shot out and took advantage of the situation. He learned the language, he learned the memorial burial process, he also gained another job and a loving community of what which he now loves. An inspiration to many – and hopefully many more.
