Linked to Loca Ventures: Shaykh Faizul Aqtab Siddiqi

Linked to Loca Ventures: Shaykh
Faizul Aqtab Siddiqi

THE COMPANY behind the plans to turn Parc Howard into a conference centre and wedding venue, Loca Ventures Ltd, has recently changed its registered office address. The reasons why are not clear, but the timing coincided with questions from The Herald as to why the company was based at the same address as an Islamic college in Watling Street, Nuneaton.

The Hijaz College Islamic University, located in a secluded 62 acre countryside setting, down a long private drive, is a boarding school young men aged 18 year or over run by top Islamic preacher and lawyer Shaykh Faizul Aqtab Siddiqi. According to that college’s own website, the facilities at Hijaz provide one of the best learning environments for Muslims available anywhere in the world.

The college is aligned with a strict form of Islam called Ahle Sunnat Wal Jama’at, and according to his own literature, its top man Siddiqi, has ‘established one of the most effective global networks with a proven ability to unite and harness communities to effect positive societal transition and positive change on a local, national and international level.’

But Siddiqi is a highly controversial figure outside the Muslim world. He is an advocate of the courts of sharia law. In 2008, The Telegraph reported that five sharia courts have been set up in London, Birmingham, Bradford and Manchester and Nuneaton, Warwickshire. One of those is at the Hijaz College where Sheikh Faiz-ul-Aqtab Siddiqi runs his court. Heading the Muslim Arbitration Tribunal he said at the time that sharia courts are classified as arbitration tribunals under a clause in the Arbitration Act 1996.

But are there any other links between Loca Ventures Ltd and a controversial Muslim with a plan for spreading sharia law throughout the UK? A quick internet Who Is check showed that the website for the Hijaz College and Loca Ventures Ltd

Was Loca’s registered address: Hijaz College

Was Loca’s registered address: Hijaz College

were BOTH registered by one Rizwan Ali of Chancery Domains Limited. This third company is also registered in Nuneaton at what seems like a business address, 7 High Street, but despite the name it’s a residential a terrace of houses. There is no evidence on line Chancery Domains is bona fide company advertising for customers. There are no signs on the outside of the property suggesting a business is registered there. A quick call to some of the residents on the street demonstrated that neighbours had not heard of the company either.

A further check with the land registry shows that 7 High Street, worth £97,000, is owned by Siddiqi with a mortgage from HSBC Bank PLC.

The new registered office address, in Hinckley Leicestershire is a former pub/restaurant owned by a corporation registered in the Cayman Islands.

The more we dig, it seems, the more tangled the web becomes.

One thing is for sure, Loca Ventures Ltd are trying to hide who is truly behind the company veil.

    Hijaz Cult presents its well dressed and well spoken conmen who lure you in with their softly spoken voices and Islamic utterances … and then begin the spiritual abuse, financially exploitation, abuse of children, all of which as has now been reported in the international publication of repute the Dutch Telegraaf rape and sexual abuse remains common place with the victims finally having the courage to come forward

    Faiz Suur outed for the charlatan, conman and trickster he is, hiding behind the veil of Islam, yet along with Tauqir Suur, refusing to pay the money he owes for the work done on the flats in Bedworth, which he has now sold on to his various mureeds and even sold one of the flats to his own charity, Muslim Educational Relief

Further childcare hub opening in Llanelli




AN additional childcare hub has opened in Llanelli this week (w/c Monday, May 25) due to increasing demand to provide care for children of critical workers and vulnerable children.

It will be located at Ysgol Ffwrnes in Llanelli and follows the opening of an extra three hubs at Bryn Primary School in Llanelli, Model Primary School in Carmarthen and Ysgol Tycroes.

It is important that numbers are kept low at the hubs to ensure the health and safety of both the children and staff.

Parents are being reminded to keep their children at home where possible to help contain the spread of coronavirus (Covid-19). However, if you are a critical worker, and your child cannot stay at home, then your childcare will be prioritised.

Parents should only apply for childcare to cover their working hours; and are also being reminded to please cancel as soon as possible if they no longer need the provision.

Please note the timetable for applications to the childcare hubs has also changed, and that applications now close at 5pm on the Wednesday of the week before.

Unfortunately, we will no longer be able to consider any applications made after deadline. Due to the significant increase in demand for places at our hubs we must make sure they are staffed sufficiently. The health and safety of both staff and pupils is vital and has to be our main priority.

7-year-old Mattie from Pembrey takes on home Pen y Fan-tastic challenge for Action for Children




Plucky Mattie Denman will climb the equivalent of Pen y Fan in the drive at her family home in Pembrey on Friday 22nd May to raise funds for Action for Children.

Mattie (7), has always wanted to climb the highest mountain in South Wales and is unable to currently because of the coronavirus pandemic.  As the family exercise at home every day, she decided she wanted to do the 6-mile equivalent journey there while she waits for the chance to do it for real.  Mattie chose Action for Children as her mother, Sian, works for the charity in Carmarthenshire.

Mattie said: ‘My Mammy works for Action for Children and I want to help as well because lots of families need help.  My older brother and sister help Action for Children, so I asked Mammy if I could do something. We exercise everyday walking up and down the drive and I have always wanted to climb Pen y Fan, but we have never done it.

‘Mammy said I could pretend I am walking it and people will give money to the charity. I said brilliant, that is what I am going to do and I am super excited to do it. I will use mammy’s step counter and I hope I can help children that need support especially because it is so hard for some families because of coronavirus.’

Proud mum and family support practitioner for Action for Children, Sian, added: ‘Mattie has a lovely heart and really wanted to do something and I’m very proud she chose Pen y Fan as her home challenge.  Action for Children has been going the extra mile during the coronavirus pandemic continuing to support vulnerable families through phone and video sessions as well as food and help with the basics from our Emergency Appeal Fund. 

‘It is a tremendously challenging time for our families and every bit of money will directly help those in our communities who need it most.  I hope as many people as possible will donate to Mattie’s brilliant fundraising effort, it’ll make it even more special when we finally get to climb Pen y Fan for real.’
