Recommended Posts

"A 99-year-old World War Two veteran has spoken of his sorrow at not being invited to British commemoration events.

"Inayet Ali was just 17 when he volunteered for Britain via the Indian Army.

"Speaking to Channel 4 News ahead of Armistice Day, he said: ‘When they have their march, when they celebrate on the day, the British Army, we just look on.

"‘At that time I feel sad, why don’t they ask me to come?’

"Mr Ali is among countless Muslims who volunteered to fight for the ‘mother country’ during the colonial era – but the Ali family say he has never been invited to any official Remembrance service."
