Muslim group cleans up Huddersfield town centre and gives food to homeless on New Years Day

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Association hope their actions can ‘bring all communities together’

A Muslim group has spent New Years Day morning cleaning up Huddersfield town centre and delivering food to the town’s homeless community.

Around 70 members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association (AMA) from Huddersfield and Honley met at Market Place at 9.30am to clean the town centre streets.

The group started the day with special prayers for people less fortunate than themselves and those suffering with illness, before setting off with litter pickers and high-vis jackets provided by Kirklees Council.

Members hope their actions can “bring all communities together” and “create harmony and cohesiveness”.

Fatihul-haq, from AMA Huddersfield, said: “Everyone enjoyed the event.

“We also want to make sure that our youth are taking part in positive things and become good law abiding citizens of this country, under the banner of Love for all Hatred for none which is our community motto bringing all the faiths together to promote peace and harmony and working for the common cause, respecting each other.”
