Bradford’s ‘model mosque’ is to open its doors to the public on Monday as part of the Connecting Cultures 2008 initiative.

After being crowned as Britain’s Best Mosque last year, the Madni Jamia Masjid, in Thornbury, has been selected to host the Our City Our Faith exhibition.

Taking place on Monday and Tuesday, the exhibition will encourage people of all faiths to come and celebrate local heritage.

Described as a “young person led project”, the exhibition will celebrate Bradford’s religious diversity, with a focus on youth.

One of the organisers of the event, Abida Rafiqu, said how the event will give people first-hand experience and understanding of Islam.
