Cardinal makes show of solidarity

Scotland’s leading Catholic has visited a mosque in a show of inter-faith solidarity. Cardinal Keith O’Brien dropped into Annandale Street Mosque in Edinburgh on Sunday.

The visit was part of a series of events marking Edinburgh Inter-Faith Week.

Accompanying the cardinal was Kwik Fit founder Sir Tom Farmer, who is a keen supporter of inter-faith work in the city.

Chairman of Annandale Street Mosque, Mohammed Aslam, said he was delighted with the cardinal’s visit.

He added: “We are committed to building peace and harmony locally and globally and to inter-faith dialogue, understanding and relationship among the faith communities.

“The cardinal’s visit gives us the opportunity to further develop our relations with our Christian neighbours.”
