Eight people from Bradford named in The Queen’s Jubilee Birthday Honours

Eight people from Bradford have been named in The Queen’s Birthday Honours.

Eight people from Bradford have been named in Her Majesty Queen’s Jubilee Birthday Honours List 2022.

Since her succession to the throne in 1952, Queen Elizabeth II has recognised the achievements and services of people from across the UK in her New Year’s and Birthday Honours from all walks of life, in public recognition of their merit, service or bravery.

People are awarded honours for making a difference in their community or field of work, enhancing Britain’s reputation, long-term voluntary service, innovation and entrepreneurship, changing things, improving life for others and displaying moral courage.

Dr Manoj Joshi DL has been awarded an MBE.

Honours are given to people involved in fields including community, voluntary and local services, arts and media, health, sport, education, science and technology, business and the economy or civil and political service.

The honours system in the UK has a long history, with knighthood stretching back as far as the Norman Conquest in 1066.

In 1917, King George V introduced the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, comprising five military and civilian divisions with the most senior two of which make the recipient either a knight if male or a dame if female.

This is followed by the Knight Commander or Dame Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (KBE or DBE), Commander of the British Empire (CBE) Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) and Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE).

There is also the related British Empire Medal, whose recipients are affiliated with, but not members of the order.

Of the 1134 people who received an award, 304 people have received a BEM, 452 people have received an MBE and 246 people have received an OBE.

Rukeya Miah has been awarded a BEM for her services to maternity and healthcare education.

The majority of recipients (59.3%) have undertaken outstanding work in their communities either in a voluntary or paid capacity. Out of the people named in the hours, 6.8% are from the Asian community.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: “This historic Platinum Jubilee is not only a celebration of the monarch but of the qualities she possesses. The honours she confers this week reflect many of those qualities that have been invaluable from all different walks of life and to communities across the UK.

“I pay tribute to all of this year’s winners. Their stories of courage and compassion are an inspiration to us all.”
