Detective-Inspector Faroque Hussain was born in Scotland to a Pakistani father and a Brazilian mother. This diverse upbringing gives Hussain a unique insight into three very different cultures. His Brazilian grandfather went from shining shoes to become the Mayor of his town. His father moved from the Punjab to the UK in 1959, progressing from a factory job to creating a lucrative cash-and-carry business. Both men encouraged Hussain to strive for greater professional success and to become a role model to others. Hussain chose to wear a kilt in this portrait, highlighting his Scottish heritage.
