Have your say

MOSQUES are opening their doors as part of a nationwide scheme.

Run by the Muslim Council of Britain, the Visit My Mosque day is held on Sunday.

Portsmouth Central Mosque, in Somers Road North, Fratton, will be open from 10am to 12.30pm.

Harun Khan, secretary general of the Muslim Council of Britain said: ‘As the world recoils at president Trump’s so called “Muslim Ban” and now the mass killing at a mosque in Canada, #VisitMyMosque is a much needed antidote to the poisonous atmosphere we find ourselves in.

‘This Sunday, February 5, the British public, Muslim and non-Muslim, have an opportunity to come together and renew bonds of friendship.’

The day is open to men, women and children.
