“This celebration is one of the most important in the Islamic religious calendar and it’s an opportunity for us all to come together in peace and unity,” a spokesperson for Green Lane Masjid & Community Center, told The Telegraph.

Organizers said over 106,000 people attended this year’s event – more than the capacity of Barcelona FC’s Nou Camp stadium...
