The Trustees of FSTC: Prof. Salim Al-Hassani, Prof. M. El-Gomati, Peter Fell, Ian Fenn, Mohammed Hafiz, Zeki Poyraz It is with great sadness that we announce the passing away of our dear friend and colleague Peter Raymond MBE, founding Trustee of The Foundation for Science, Technology and Civilisation (FSTC), the parent organisation of 1001 Inventions and Curriculum Enrichment (CE4CE). Peter also founded and chaired the Muslim Heritage Awareness Group (MHAG) of FSTC, a network that encourages public figures, especially academics, to support the main objectives of the Foundation which are to raise global awareness of the importance and relevance of Muslim heritage and its mostly unacknowledged scientific contributions to current world civilisation and also to promote social cohesion and inter-cultural appreciation through education.
