D-Day 80: Doncaster Muslims join poignant beacon lighting ceremony

Bilal Mahmood, president of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association Doncaster, read a verse at Edlington Community Woodland at last night’s ceremony.

He said: “We came to honour and remember the veterans of WW2 who made great sacrifices for the sake of stopping cruelties and we pray that people in the modern day are instilled with similar selfless traits and a desire to end cruelties and injustice.”
