It was Eid-ul-Fitr yesterday, the Muslim celebration to mark the end of Ramadan.
As usual there were problems on Wilmslow Road in Manchester with young Muslims driving at breakneck speed, sounding their horns, steroes blasting and hanging out of car windows.
The man I buy my paper from was quite scathing about it. He is a Muslim himself and his view was that this wasn’t what Eid was about. He said that it was about getting up in the morning; showering; putting on brand new clothes; going to the mosque; and then spending the day celebrating with family and friends.
It is not about running amok in the streets. The people of Wilmslow Road would probably agree with him, though no coverage of the latter in the MEN. Un-pc.
