An Open Letter From Simon Hughes

Eid Mubarak

Eid Mubarak to all of those in the Muslim community and special greetings to you and your family on this Eid festival!


It is really good that in Southwark and the rest of London, as well as across the UK, Eid is more widely celebrated. It is a sign of the growing importance of this festival in this country that there was such a well-attended Eid festival in Burgess Park on Monday and many thanks should be given to the Southwark Muslim Forum for their initiative and leadership of this event.
 
I much enjoyed worshipping with some of my constituents for Jamat prayers and will continue to visit regularly all the mosques in my community, as well as other Muslim community groups.
 
I hope you and your families continue to enjoy the remainder of Eid. You have my assurance that I will continue to work with and for you – for peace, justice and prosperity in this country and across the world, and especially in the Middle East at this time.
 
Please also remember that if you live in our constituency I am available to try and help you at any time, as I also am available to help businesses or voluntary organisations based in my constituency, too.
 
Salam to you and your families.
