Muslim Snow Patrol – What its all about

Muslim Snow Patrol – Why we do it

The Islamic Diversity Centre (IDC) in Newcastle has called into action its self-titled ‘Muslim Snow Patrol’ to help clear residential roads and drives in Newcastle’s West End.

After Newcastle City Council was contacted about the plans, it provided the team with gloves, shovels and grit as well as directing the team to areas most in need.

IDC director Abu Tayeb said:

“[Residents] have been really appreciative of the work that we’re doing.

“They’ve been a bit surprised at why loads of bearded men have come and tried to help them clear their drives.

“As Muslims we believe that it is our Islamic duty to look after our neighbours, especially in these very difficult conditions.

“We’re trying to remove some of those preconceptions people have about Islam and Muslims by showing that Muslims actually do good things and are trying to help our neighbours.”
