The Lancashire Telegraph (11 Sept) comment page reports on a two day festival to be organised in Blackburn to mark Eid ul Fitr and the contribution of the event to increasing understanding of Islam.
‘It’s true to say that while most Muslims know all about Christmas and Easter and their religious significance, many Christians have very little idea of what Eid or Ramadan mean to followers of Islam.’
‘Hopefully, plans to hold a two-day Muslim prayer festival in Blackburn’s Corporation Park to mark Eid, the end of the fasting month of Ramadan, is to be welcomed’, the newspaper reports.
