Labour Leader was “impressed” by mosques who are feeding the hungry across the country.

Jeremy Corbyn said he was “impressed” by “contributions made by mosques all over the country in ensuring that people who are undeservedly hungry are fed by you who care for them.”

He was speaking at the Eid al-Adha reception at the Labour Party Headquarters in London organised by British Muslim Friends of Labour on September 6. Corbyn said Eid is about “celebrating the values of Islam, the values of compassion, and helping those who are less fortunate than ourselves.”

Criticising the Government on austerity he said his government would be that “cares for all and that we have a society that does not rely on food banks.” The Opposition Leader thanked the Muslim community who “give people at the time of crisis”, especially “those that rushed to the aid of others during the fire at Glenfell Tower fire.”

“That is the true spirit of what Eid is all about, what a community is all about.”
