Last Sunday a group of Calderdale Liberal Democrats including three Calderdale Councillors went along to visit the Jamiat Ahl-e-Hadith Mosque on Hopwood Lane. The open day was part of a national #visitmymosque day where Mosques across the country opened their doors to people of all faiths and no faiths.
Councillor James Baker, leader of Calderdale Liberal Democrats said: “I think it is important to try and understand different religions and to build bridges with neighbours in our communities rather than erecting walls and divisions. We all received a very warm welcome and learnt more about both the religion of Islam and the good charitable work that the Mosque does within the local community. As Liberals we are very much committed to interfaith dialogue.”
