Westfield celebrates Islam with Ramadan Workshop for Kids

Westfield shopping centre is currently hosting a Ramadan workshop for kids.

According to the store’s website, children are invited to celebrate Eid al-Fitr, “an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting.”

Children participating in the celebration will be able to create and decorate their own Islam-themed bookmarks and mobiles. Alongside the workshops will be story time, featuring ‘It’s Ramadan, Curious George’.

It was only recently that outspoken atheist, Richard Dawkins warned, “Before we rejoice at the death throes of the relatively benign Christian religion, let’s not forget Hilaire Belloc’s menacing rhyme: ‘Always keep a-hold of nurse – For fear of finding something worse.'”
