The 78-year-old pedestrian, who died in a car collision in the A12 on April 7, has been described as “a dedicated family man” by his son.
The man, named as Mohammad Abdul Muqtadir, was killed at around 6am after leaving morning prayers at Redbridge Islamic Centre, near the junction with Ellesmere Gardens, Redbridge.
He was reportedly walking towards his house in Castle Drive, Redbridge, when he was involved in a “serious collision” with a car.
His son, Mustafa Uddin, also of Redbridge, told the Recorder his father was “very pious, sincere and generous”.
He said: “He was a humble, hard-working and dedicated family man.
“He was an amazing husband, father and grandfather and will be sadly missed by our family, friends and the wider community.”
A post-mortem examination took place at East Ham Mortuary on April 8 and established the cause of death as multiple injuries.
