Otsuka Masjid in Tokyo arranged a barbecue party at Wakasu Park, Tokyo on November 10, 2013. The basic aim of the event was to meet and greet members of the Muslim community in Tokyo and surrounding areas to commemorate Eidul Adha celebrations. Muslims and their friends from the mainstream Japanese society attended the event.
“The idea behind starting the annual barbecue party on the occasion of Eid ul Adha was to invite, especially those members of the Muslim community in Japan who did not want to visit Masjid for one reason or another” was stated by the barbecue party organizer, Br. Haroon Ahmed Qureshi from Otsuka Masjid. Around 80 people including children, and their parents and friends attended the event.
