Sajjad Haider, a local Manchester estate agent solely organised a peace walk last Sunday 28th May. In remembrance of the Manchester terrorist attack, Sajjad’s good deed involved gathering over 200 marchers from the Muslim community and various other religions. People attending the march, from All Saints Gardens in Oxford Road to St Peter’s Square, held red roses symbolising peace. “We Love Manchester” and “ISIS is not Islam” banners were also held in solidarity to the 22 people who lost their lives.
After living in the city for more than 17 years, Sajjad Haider is a prominent member of the Shia community whilst also running his own estate agency. Sajjad believes it is their duty, as Muslims to condemn the attack and give love to those affected. He also highlighted how many Muslims who turned up had been fasting after Ramadan. Sajjad has posted various images of the peace march on his Twitter page which can be seen here.
