Human rights lawyer Aamer Anwar, also renowned for his campaigning on issues such as race and peace, has said that new political leadership is required in Glasgow.
"I am not a member of any political party, but believe that Osama Saeed's Westminster campaign is hugely important and a change is desperately needed in Glasgow Central. Having known him for a number of years, his record on community matters is impeccable.
“I am delighted to be associated with individuals like Osama Saeed who have a record of fighting injustice and poverty.”
Osama Saeed said he was grateful for the endorsement which was extremely significant:
“My campaign in Glasgow Central has liberty, peace and justice as its core values. Aamer Anwar is one of the chief champions of these causes in our country, and so I greatly value his support."
