Have your say

PEOPLE of different faiths have been coming together in Sheffield to discover how much they have in common.

Sheffield Islamic Society organised a week of events for Islam Awareness Week.

It included an awareness day at Bramall Lane and yesterday St Mark’s Church, Broomhill, also hosted a food and friendship event.

Society president Abdool Goolgar said the aim was to combat a rise in ‘Islamaphobia’ after terrorist attacks.

He said: “We are trying to get the message out that the meaning of Islam is peace.

“All faiths have a small hardcore element and they do not speak for the faith - they speak for themselves.”
