During Ramadan, Muslims break their daily fast with Iftars – getting together with family, friends or the wider community to eat, pray and reflect. It is also a time where Muslims traditionally pay particular attention to how they can serve their community.
For Jo Cox’s hometown of Batley, this seemed like a great opportunity to invite people of all faiths to come together and get to know each other a bit better.
“We are living in a time where there is some hate around, therefore it is very important that we as human beings remain together and care for one another.”
“We are remembering Jo and we’re also remembering what she stood for, about bringing communities together. This gives everyone the opportunity to learn a little bit more.”
