ALMOST 90% OF Britons have never stepped inside a mosque a survey has revealed – but that could change this weekend as hundreds throw open their doors to welcome people of all faiths and none in.

Over 200 Mosques around country will take part in an initiative known as ‘Visit My Mosque Day’ set up by the Muslim Council of Britain this Sunday.

Secretary General, of the Muslim Council of Britain, Harun Khan said: “Despite the multi-religious and multi-cultural society we live in, these poll results show that the majority of Britons have not seen what the place of worship of another faith looks like.

“Many faith communities hold open door events regularly and this Sunday over 200 mosques across the UK will also be opening their doors, to give people of all faiths and none the chance to get to know their neighbours of a different faith.”

The initiative is now its fourth consecutive year and will give people a chance to learn about different cultures and faiths.

Bishop of Bradford, Reverend Dr Toby Howarth, said: “Crossing the threshold of a different place of worship can be an important step in learning about and getting to know our neighbours.

“As a bishop and as a trustee of the Christian Muslim Forum, I very much welcome the Visit My Mosque Day initiative.

“I plan to visit mosques in Bradford on 18th February with local clergy and congregation members, and

"I warmly encourage others to do the same where they are.”
