Celebration of faiths event returns

Halifax Minster will host the Calderdale Interfaith Celebration next month.

It will be the fourth year of the event, which promotes religious harmony in the area.

Organiser Raja Taufiq Khan said: “The main purpose is to unite the faiths together and share their different cultures. There will be bhangra dancing and songs from different faiths. We’re expecting about 300 people. There were about 250 at last year’s event and it’s been getting more popular.

“Other organisations should arrange things like this as it helps eradicate hate, violence and prejudice.”
