Queen’s Honors: Muslim Doctor Receives OBE for Healthcare Services

A Muslim doctor at London Royal hospital was presented his OBE by the Duke of Cambridge Prince Williams for services to healthcare in a Wednesday celebration at Buckingham Palace.

Dr. Malik Ramadhan, the divisional director of emergency care and trauma at the Royal London Hospital, was named in the Queen’s New Year honors for his efforts after the London Bridge attacks on 3 June 2017.

According to Kensington Palace Instagram account, Malik “was cycling home at 10 pm after finishing his shift when he saw large numbers of police cars driving towards central London — after speaking to the London Ambulance Service to find out what was happening, Malik turned around and returned straight back to work.”

“I was the resuscitation room commander. I ensured the injured patients had their scans and surgery at the right time and always had the right number of people looking after them. We performed emergency surgery on six patients lasting between an hour and three to four hours.”

Speaking on the role of the team, he said: “Everyone rallies around in a crisis; it’s what we’re all built for. The public should know that the NHS and NHS staff are geared up for things like this and that if they do happen they will be looked after to a very high standard.”

Many British Muslims, especially youth and women, have been named in the 2018 Queen’s New Year honors, in recognition of their charitable work to help their community.

In 2017, Annie Zaidi, the first Muslim woman to get level two coaching badge from the Football Association, was awarded the British Empire Medal.

A few days ago, many Muslims were also named for the Queen’s birthday honors including Emdad Hossein Talukder for his 20-year-work in fostering and helping open adoption to the British Muslim community in Tower Hamlets, London.
