PM Theresa May visited Maidenhead mosque south-east of London on

Sunday, as part of an initiative to encourage British to visit Mosques

and learn about Islam and its message calling for peace in the world.

May who covered her hair with a scarf said that it was “a very

precious occasion to be able to learn about Islam and to stress that

it is a peaceful religion.”

The doors of more than 200 British mosques were opened Sunday as part

of an initiative that started after the attacks of 7/7, 2005 on the

transport network in London to encourage dialogue between the

different faiths in the UK.

Senior UK officials participated in the initiative organized by the

Muslim Council of Britain to encourage tolerance in society. The

muslim council explained that “Visit My Mosque” day is important for

society as “open doors, open mosques (mean) open societies.”
