Uber Driver Unfairly Charged

Nazrul Islam is a hard working Uber Driver who was on shift when he picked up 3 drunk friends June 2017. One of his passengers Sam Thomas who was heavily intoxicated jumped out of the car while the car was at a red light. Nazrul drove off without realising as his eyes were on the road waiting for the light to turn green. Sam Thomas was hit by a bus and subsequently died. Now our legal system has failed us again and Mr Islam has now been charged with negligent driving occasioning death.
This poor Uber driver works hard to make ends meet. He was not out partying and getting drunk. He was trying to make an honest living and now his life has been turned upside down through no fault of his own. When are people going to start taking responsibility for their own actions? Uber drivers are not baby sitters.
The deceased had 2 other friends in the car with him. Why is being drunk an excuse to get away with blue murder. They didn’t stop their friend yet they do not face sentencing like this poor Uber driver is facing in January 2019. This judgement is ridiculously biased and I want to save enough funds to help Mr Nazrul Islam with legal bills and lost income he has suffered.
We should not stay silent and do our best to help those that are trying to just stay alive and pay their bills

Update-
After weeks of trying to transfer the funds to Mr Nazrul Islam’s bank account, we have no options but for me to take back the control of the funds as we were experiencing too many technically difficulties with Go Fund Me.
Therefore the funds will now be transferred in to my own bank account and then I will hand over the money raised to Mr Islam in cash.
The lawyer is working on the case and as I mentioned before, these funds will be used to pay for the professional reports required to support Mr Islam’s case and keep him out of jail.
We will update you accordingly after Christmas period.

Just an update
Mr Nazrul Islam has now new legal representation. A top Sydney criminal lawyer specialising in cases like this has taken this case on Pro Bono. Which means he will not charge for his services.
We are very grateful for all the offers of legal help from various legal firms and it was very hard for us to make a decision.
The money raised will be much needed for the professional reports that are required to appeal the sentencing. Again Mr Islam thanks everyone for their support and for standing firm against this injustice.

For all those that believed in Mr Nazrul Islam innocence of any wrong doing and for all those that believed in my campaign. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Every dollar raised from Go Fund me will be transferred to Mr Islam. He is alone in Australia with little to no support. These funds are to compensate him for his loss of income, the stress and agony that he is going through for someone else’s actions and for his family back home in Bangladesh who were relying on what little income he was making driving Uber.
May Allah reward you all.

Salam everyone
Firstly a massive thank you to everyone who has shared this campaign, donated or made prayers.
Your support has been greatly appreciated by Mr Islam.
We are meeting with him and his solicitor tomorrow.
I have been humbled by the outpouring of messages and requests of help from so many people.
This now gives Mr Islam a sense of community as he has no family and friends here. I trust we have restored his faith in humanity.
