ANTI-RACISTS united in Greater Manchester yesterday to stage a vigil following a rise in Islamophobic attacks.
The vigil, supported by the Ramadhan Foundation, was held following a “racially aggravated” attack in the town on June 30.
Ramadhan Foundation chief executive Mohammed Shafiq said: “The rise of hate crimes against Muslims and minority communities needs to be called out for what it is.
“We must all stand united against such hate and I am proud that the Ramadhan Foundation supports this vigil.”
Another vigil will be staged at Southern Cemetery in Barlow Moor Rd in Manchester at 2pm tomorrow.
