GREATER MANCHESTER MUSLIMS MARCH ON PROPHET MOHAMMAD’S BIRTHDAY
TO SHOW THE TRUE VALUES OF ISLAM – PEACE AND JUSTICE –
AND TO SHOW SOLIDARITY WITH THE PEOPLE OF ALEPPO AND SYRIA
Qadir Ahmad Chohan, Chair of Manchester Council of Mosques (MCOM) says, ‘’The Greater Manchester Muslim community celebrates the birthday of Prophet Mohammad (Peace and Blessings be on him and his family) each year. This is a special time for Muslims when we remember our beloved Prophet (PBUH) who we believe is ‘the mercy to all humanity’.
This year, on Sunday 18th December 2016, thousands of Muslims across Greater Manchester will gather and be marching to show the true values of Islam – peace and justice – and show solidarity with the people of Aleppo so badly let down by governments in the region and in the West. Last year we showed our opposition to the twisted and extreme violent ideology of ISIS/Daesh. This year we will be reminding people that it is only by returning to the central messages of the Prophet of Islam, to support the victims of inhumanity and not be silent in the face of so much injustice that we will progress to a safe world for all to live in. Oppression exists and continues to grow when we collective fail to enjoin the good and forbid the wrongdoer.
The march will begin from Darul Uloom Mosque, Stamford Road, Longsight, Manchester at 1pm and end at Manchester Central Mosque, Upper Park Road, Victoria Park, Manchester where food will be provided to all the public.
We would like the general public to join us in celebrating the birth of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and call for the perpetrators of heinous war crimes to be brought to justice as our Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) encouraged us to do’’.
