Hundreds of Muslims took part in the latest annual procession to mark the birthday of the Prophet Mohammed.

Worshippers began gathering outside the Markazi Jamia Mosque, in Emily Street, Keighley, at 11am today.

Volunteers helped marshal the procession and businesses handed out food, sweets and drinks.

The event has been taking place annually in Keighley for 26 years, and is organised by Keighley Muslim Association. (KMA). KMA community relations and education officer Mohammed Saleem said the occasion’s primary message was to promote love, peace and harmony.

“We are celebrating the birth of Prophet Mohammed by showing our love and respect,” he said.

Yes as with all these get togethers, never any women in sight. Maybe someone from the Asian community, bearing in mind we are in the 21st Century, would like to enlighten us.

Supposedly it was because of Health and safety rules that the scouts and guides were not allowed to march on the Patron Saint of England's day, but we all know the real reason.....and that was because people were afraid that the Cross of St. George would offend certain members of the community.

The fact is, everytime there's a story about Blacks, Asians, or Muslims, the usual bigoted Islamophobic scum on here seem to go through the roof.

Very bizarre.

Well as long as they enjoyed it good luck to them.
Would say to the critics predicting an Islamic takeover look at the turnout only a couple of hundred turn out in their panto gear for their god's birthday but then down the road 50 times more will turn out to see 22 men kick a pigs skin ball around twice a month - a shame if you ask me, where were all the worshippers ?
Time we got this reglious thing into perspective it deserve's, it is very marginalised when compared to the worship of consumer goods and football.

Maybe T&A wants tensions between communities.
Bradford Insurance scams didn't have comments enabled then why this?
Someone needs to review T&A comment policy.
