The 20-year-old who was stabbed and attacked by a group of men in Wagner Street on April 11, was remembered by family friends, community leaders, police, councillors and members of the Muslim community at the East London Mosque, in Whitechapel.
The crowds followed the hursts to the Gardens of Peace Muslim Cemetery in Elmbridge Road, Hainault to lay the former Swanlea Secondary School and Tower Hamlets College business student to rest.
Uncle Jitu Choudhury, who flew over from the USA to join the funeral, said: “I hope everyone can realise that my nephew was a young, bright, talented young man whose life is wasted to mindless killing, the killers lives too are wasted.”
Hundreds gathered round to help bury Syed by each throwing a handful of soil into his grave and stood round to pray for him and his family.
Father, Syed Abdul Mukit, added: “I do not want other parents to go through what we as parents are going through.
“We must stop this senseless killing.
“I appreciate alll the community, friends and familt for coming to the ceremony and giving us support.”
The family have started a campaign, Stop Knife Crime, to stop youths carrying knives and want parents to be more involved in their children’s activities.
Campaign co-ordinator, Maswood Ahmed, said: “Every life lost is a tragedy and it leaves families and friends devastated.
“We need to put resources where it really matters to save lives being lost in vein and to stop the ripple effect of this vicious cycle.”
“This campaign is not about one person, it is about all of us taking responsibility as parents, as community leaders, as politicians, as local, regional and central government, tackling crime at its root and putting a stop to knife crime.”
Three teenagers have since been charged in connection with his death.
