Local Muslims Keeping Britain Tidy
Five local Muslim lads took part in a nationwide campaign to keep Britain tidy last weekend.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association UK mucked in to clean up litter.
Youth from the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) Keighley, joined the initiative as part of the GB Spring Clean campaign being run by Keep Britain Tidy.
The initiative to work along with Keep Britain Tidy was one of many charitable and community initiatives carried out by the AMYA. The group are also organising blood donation sessions, charity collections, Children's hospital and Nursing home visits, and homeless feeding sessions.
Dr Adeem Rubani, Youth Leader for Keighley said:
"Our members have enjoyed living in the area for decades and so any opportunity to help our local Community is much welcome."
''We are peace loving British Muslims and will continue to do all we can to serve our local community as best we can and wherever there is a need. It is an essential tenant of our faith to serve our fellow man and society at large and in this regard our Worldwide Head His Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmad, the Caliph of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community regular guides our youngsters across the world about their responsibilities in this regard.”
As a Youth movement AMYA ensures that from a very early age a sense of citizenship and belonging to wider society is instilled in their youngsters. The organisation not only in Keighley but across the district, the country and the world ensures that its youth are developed to become valuable servants of the communities in which they live and reside.
