Community Procession, starting at Alice Street Mosque, reviving a part of Butetown's heritage. The procession, young and old, makes it's way around the streets of Butetown back to the Mosque. *WALKERS enjoyed the sunshine yesterday as they took part in an interfaith march designed to boost the image of Islam in Wales. Between 40 and 50 took part in the event, a revival of a tradition instigated in Cardiff by the late Sheikh Said Hassan Ismail, who served the Muslim community of Butetown for over 60 years. Alice Street Mosque imam Zane Abdo organised the event in honour of Sheik Ismail. Mr Abdo said: ???Right now, Cardiff has been in the media because of Muslims for the wrong reasons. ???I want to put Muslims in Cardiff in the limelight for the right reasons. ???The arrests to do with the extremism in South Wales ??? that is not representative of Muslims in the community. 13th, May, 2012.
