Campaigners launch adverts on Bradford district buses to bring people together
A Muslim group is going on the road with its message of peace by mounting a poster campaign on buses across Bradford.
The Love For All Hatred For None message will be seen on about 20 buses in the district, and on 240 buses nationally as part of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association campaign.
Dr Mohammed Iqbal, president of the association’s Bradford branch, said its advertisement campaign was especially important in the wake of last week’s killing by US special forces of terrorist leader Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan.
He had described his death as good news for those interested in developing peace across the world.
He said: “I think the bus campaign is important because it shows communities taking a pro-active step and trying to counteract any type of extremist views that people might be worried about at this time, to alleviate anxieties and show communities working together and building bridges.”
He said after the death of Osama Bin Laden it became “even more important to try to stall fears”.
Dr Iqbal said he hoped the campaign, which will run for the next two weeks, will highlight the work the group does to bring communities together, and help spread its message of peace.
