MP visits Basingstoke Mosque

Local MP Maria Miller was delighted to go along to the open day at the Albirr Mosque in Basingstoke.

Basingstoke residents with an interest in finding out more about the Islamic faith were invited to an open day at the mosque to find out more about the Islamic faith, meet new people and join a guided tour. An exhibition gave visitors an insight into the history of the religion showing manuscripts and artefacts which showcase the background of the faith in the community.

 

Maria said “I was once again delighted to visit Albirr Mosque, and meet with members of the local Muslim community. Basingstoke’s community is richly diverse, one of the many reasons which makes it a great place to live.”
