A MUSLIM group will hold a day of outreach activities to create a ‘bond of brotherhood’ in Burton.

The town’s branch of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association will hold a ‘Holy Founder’s Day’ with a question and answer session from 11.30am on Sunday, May 4.

The event, which will also include speeches on different religions will take place at the Caribbean Centre, in Uxbridge Street.

The group’s president, Syed Zakira, said: “The association is a dynamic, progressive, peace-loving movement in Islam.

“We aspire to deliver the true and original message of Islam and our guiding motto is ‘love for all, hatred for none’.

“Unfortunately, in today’s world this sits incongruously with the media depiction of Islam, its followers and founder, in which extremism, intolerance and terrorism are wrongly attributed to this great faith.

“Did the founders of Islam, Christianity, Sikhism, Hinduism, Judaism really teach these things?”
