Milad un Nabi - Lumb Lane

A celebration and parade took place yesterday in Bradford to celebrate the birth of the prophet Muhammad. Thousands of Muslims took part in the parade, some arriving by coach from Preston and beyond. Gifts of food and drink were distributed at various points along the route which passed through the streets of the Manningham area. The chap in pink in the centre of the photograph is an important Muslim cleric, and was, I beleive, the main guest.
