Eid al-Adha Reception

On Wednesday 25 October, the CMF held a reception to mark Eid al-Adha. Although the date of Eid itself was much earlier, the CMF always holds its celebration event in October to allow time for the party conferences season. The event was very well attended, with a large number of younger people attending.

Our speakers were:

  1. Master of Cermonies CMF Executive Member Hashim Bhatti
  2. Recitation of Quran 37:102-109 by Imam Ali Omar, Muslim Chaplain to the Military
  3. Welcome to the guests on by Narinder Singh Pooni, Senior Parliamentary Researcher to Alberto Costa MP on behalf of our Parliamentary Host Alberto Costa who was called into an urgent meeting at the last minute.
  4. Stephen Kerr, MP for Stirling.
  5. CMF Chairman Mohammed Amin
  6. Major Roger Metcalfe of the Royal Artillery
  7. CMF President Lord Sheikh
  8. Vote of thanks by Anwara Ali
