Town's religions join in walk for harmony
By The Huddersfield Daily Examiner
HUDDERSFIELD Interfaith Council held a special event to promote friendship between the town's different cultures.
The council has representatives from the Muslim, Jewish, Christian, Sikh, Hindu and Baha'i religions.
The group organised a Walk of Friendship last Saturday, to encourage togetherness between followers of the six faiths.
The walk started from the Muslim Community Centre on Clare Hill.
Members of the six faiths are pictured on the march, including (from left) the Vicar of Woodhouse, the Rev Mel Garside, the Vicar of Huddersfield, the Rev Catherine Ogle, Hindu representative Karin Bali, the Muslims' Tariq Fazal, the Rev Emanuel Rahmat and Sikh representative Inderpal Singh Randhawa.
Walkers gradually joined the procession, which called at Huddersfield Parish Church in Byram Street, the Hindu Temple in Zetland Street and the Sikh Temple on Prospect Street, Springwood.
At each place the walkers were welcomed by members of that particular faith. Prayers and blessings were said and refreshments were on offer.
