The inter-faith event took place at the Mosque and Islamic Centre of Brent on Sunday.

Manager Yasir Mehmood Alam said the idea was to promote peace regardless of the religious and non-religious values that society holds.

“This not only shares love, but is also a great foundation to break any barriers,” he said. “The underlying goal is for the public to learn more about the different religions and existing communities within the area.”

A discussion was held in which representatives from different religions spoke about the values and positive foundations of their communities.
