Naweed studied at school where he struggled and therefore was on special educational needs. Despite this he always tried his best in school. He was always the teachers favourite and always enthusiastic. He continued to study on and attended college. He has worked for various organisations; his colleagues would always describe Naweed as helpful to staff and customers. He treated everyone equally regardless of their religion, culture or belief.
On the day of Naweed’s arrest it was his first shift at ‘Hero Courier’s’ (fake company set up by the West Midlands Police / Counter Terrorism Unit).
