Minhaj-ul-Quran International London is celebrating the spirit of community cohesion and diversity at Newham on Friday 10 July, by organising a community iftar, bringing together people of Newham during the holy month of Ramadan. Local MPs and councillors, leaders of different faith groups, law enforcement officers and residents will be joining to share the festivities. This will include food from different parts of the world and various performances.

Speaking at the event will be Stephen Timms MP and Chief Inspector Shabnum Chaudhry of Newham Police, who are both really excited about attending the event.

The function will conclude with a minute silence in memory of the victims of terrorist attacks around the world and a collective prayer for peace led by all the faith leaders present.

The founder of Minhaj-ul-Quran, Dr.Tahir-ul-Qadri, has been at the forefront of promoting peace and tolerance and has recently launched an anti-terror curriculum for this purpose.

We hope you will join us to cover this important event to raise awareness of such work taking place in the Borough of Newham.
