Ghulam Sarwar is a Bangladeshi-born British writer on Islam in English and director of the Muslim Educational Trust (MET).


Sarwar was born in the Bengal Presidency (now Bangladesh), British India. He graduated with Honours in commerce from the Govt College of Commerce in Chittagong[1][2] and also received his Masters in Business Management from the University of Dhaka.


His support for Jamaat-e-Islami has led to accusations of collaboration with Pakistan in the Bangladesh independence struggle.[3]


Sarwar's Islam: Beliefs and Teachings is used in religious education classes, especially in British schools.[4]
