YOUNGSTERS from Bromsgrove had the privilege of welcoming the Prime Minister to a multi-faith event in Manchester.
Sara Shahid, 12 and from the Oakalls, and brothers Ayman and Danyal Azmi, eight and four and both from Barnt Green, greeted David Cameron with flowers at the Big Iftar at Jamia Mosque last Wednesday (August 7).
The event is a part of a scheme to invite people of all faiths or none to share the iftar, a meal which breaks fasting during Ramadan. It sees mosques throughout the country open their doors to Muslims and non-Muslims to demystify the faith of Islam.
Dr Waqar Azmi OBE, father of Ayman and Danyal, said: “The Prime Minister was very engaging and his commitment to tackling anti-Muslim hatred and condemnation of the recent Islamophobic attacks on mosques in the strongest possible terms was welcomed by the community.
“The boys were really excited to meet the Prime Minister and it certainly was a great privilege for them and all of us to have had the opportunity to meet and talk to him personally.”
