Details for this years community iftar are yet to be annoucned
Third year in a row, RamadanFM along with Minhaj-ul-Quran International held yet another 'Community Iftar' festival on Thursday 30th June 2016. We invited the local community to join us in our fasting for one day, breaking it as sunset fell. Members of the local community along with some eminent guests also did a collective peace prayer. This festival attraced well over 150 guests as we served free food on the streets of London, allowing anyone to come and join us. We had passersby joining and having a meal with us and enjoying the festival. We believe interfaith dialogue is crucial to ensuring peace in the modern world and we were pleased to see that everyone agreed with us. The eminent guests also included a number of leaders coming from different faiths.
For the second time, Minhaj-ul-Quran in conjunction with the RamadanFM team held a 'Community Iftar' on Friday 10th July 2015 outside the Romford Road centre. As part of the festival, we welcomed Stephen Timms MP along with more than 250 others all from different walks of life. As with all our Community Iftar festivals, this too consisted of non-Muslims that joined Muslims for food and also had a solemn message. This was seen as a encouraging opportunity for community cohesion. The victims of the Tunisia terror attack were also remembered on this ocassion with a candlelit vigil. After a minutes silence, Mr Timms joined Newham Police's Chief Insp Shabnum Chaudhri in breaking the fast with dates before traditional Asian food and homemade cakes were served.
RamadanFM organised their first ever Community Iftar on Friday 18th July 2014 in memory of those that lost their lives in Gaza and the Lahore Massacre 2014 outside the Minhaj-ul-Qurn centre in Lodon. Guests such as Stephen Timms (Local MP), Superintendent Ian Larnder (Newham Police), Faith Leaders, Local Councillers and the wider community of East London participated in the event. The festival saw a number of speakers, sharing their thoughts on interfaith harmony and praying for Global peace. There was a memorable 'Peace Prayer' in which all representatives of the community gather to remember those that had lost their lives in the recent humanitarian crisis and state terrorism.
