An Interfaith Iftar in Stamford Continues Support for Muslims
STAMFORD -- Hoping to prolong feelings of unity sparked during an interfaith vigil last week, members of the Christian, Jewish and Islamic faiths returned to First Congregational Church on Thursday evening to break the daily fast of Ramadan together.
"I'm hoping that this will take on a life of its own," said Zubaida Khan, who co-organized the event. "It will be in the direction of friendship." Khan said she has been both disturbed by what she views as negative portrayals of Islam by the media and encouraged by support she has seen demonstrated for local Muslims.
