Portrayed by Adil Ray
School sponsor Sadiq is a wealthy businessman in Ackley Bridge who invests in the school to make himself a bigger figurehead in the community. His arrival within the school environment isn't welcomed by some - particularly sports science teacher Steve Bell who suspects he's having an affair with his wife, and headmistress, Mandy Carter. Steve's suspicions are confirmed eventually when Sadiq's daughter Alya exposed her father's affair in front of the whole school...awkward.
