"My family's interest in factual news reporting extends back decades, inspiring me to always pursue and report on the truth," said Ashraf. "I transitioned the newspaper into a business magazine in 2012, shortly thereafter founding CH Books – a publishing house that supports our commitment to factual research and distribution. Today, we will take our commitment to the truth one step farther with none other than the British Herald."
The entrepreneur, thought-leader, speaker, and author will bring his dedication, courage, and prowess to the forefront of the British Herald moving forward.
