Flashmob Iftar

Seven cities held Seven Flashmob Iftar’s across the UK yesterday despite the rain or cloudy atmosphere people came out in numbers. Hungry Muslims offered their samosas, deep fried pakoras and the odd Penguin bar and more to homeless people, refugees, asylum seekers and the vulnerable. Manchester, Leicester, Sheffield, London, Slough, Cardiff and Birmingham used the modern day means of communication and the odd phone call to a homeless shelter to ensure two sets of people united by the bond of hunger congregated together for the Flashmob Iftar.  For some hunger is a necessity for one month served and fed those for whom hunger is the norm. As we go through the second half of Ramadan, no doubt more Flashmobs will be taking place.
