Hundreds of thousands of British Muslims have gathered to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr - a religious holiday that marks the end of the month of Ramadan.

Events are being held around the UK today, with 106,000 worshippers at one event alone in Small Heath Park, Birmingham. Those present prayed together ahead of their first daylight meal following a month of fasting.

Thousands are meanwhile expected at a two-day event at Platt Fields Park in Fallowfield, Greater Manchester.

The event in the Midlands is the largest gathering of Muslims in Europe joined together for the 'Festival of Breaking the Fast.'

Families - some having travelled to Birmingham from as far as the US - got to their knees in unison for prayers at 9am this morning.

Those present prayed together ahead of their first daylight meal following a month of fasting eating huge meals after sundown everyday.

“Hundreds of thousands of British Muslims “

That, in six words, is the problem.

Make no mistake, it was deliberate.

What is the chance of those children assimilating? Zero.
What is the chance of their families assimilating? Zero.
What is the chance of their culture assimilating? Zero.

Bye, bye Britain indeed.

So long as it's not Napalm. The club frowns upon Napalm.

Wives. Plural. I count 4 little ones there, though it looks like one is trying to escape.
