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.”
