Kennington in Ramadan

Members of the Kennington Bethlehem Link were invited to the annual ‘Iftar Meal’ in St Anselm’s Church on Sunday night.

The event was organised by Kowsar Hoque (owner of Kennington Tandoori) and Reverend Angus Aagard of St Anselm’s.

Iftar, which translates from Arabic as ‘breakfast’, is one of the religious observances of the holy month of Ramadan for Muslims. It was an opportunity for Muslims, Christians and secular people of Kennington to get together for an evening, a good opportunity to bring people together in a time when attacks on faith groups are all too common.
