A message of peace is what members of Hamilton’s Muslim community wanted to share at a combined Eid and Canada Day celebration Sunday in Riverdale.
Hamilton’s Muslim community invited the Riverdale neigbourhood to festivities at the community centre as a way to connect people of various backgrounds that make up the area.
It was also used as an opportunity to dismantle stereotypes of Islam.
“The Riverdale neighbourhood is one of the most diverse neighbourhoods in Hamilton and people from all over the world make their home here in Riverdale,” said Nazia Zeb from the Social Planning and Research Council of Hamilton.
