Nadeem Ashfaq, spokesman for Light Foundation, based in Preston, said: “I want to say a huge thank you to all the wonderful people of Preston for attending our interfaith Ramadan dinner, and for joining us for an absolutely jam packed evening of what can only be described as an absolutely phenomenal display of unity and togetherness, during times of hatred and division.

“Much love and a sincere thank you to our wonderful and enlightened speaker, Shaykh, Dr Mahmood Chandia who had the crowd mesmerised by his beautiful and provoking messages on how the purpose of Ramadan and fasting is to inculcate God consciousness in people and how this translates to having love, concern and tolerance for the wider community.

“We also take this opportunity to thank the diverse people of Preston for their continued support.”
