Eid al-Fitr – Global Photo Reportage

A collection of photographs of Eid al-Fitr celebration from eight different locations around the world. It has been hosted on MS Media Service website. The press release states that:

"Worldwide there are more than 1 billion Muslims and it is currently the fastest growing religion in the world. Muslims often complain that they are being misrepresented in the media, largely being depicted as fanatics and terrorists. One of the aims of this collaborative effort is to show one of the positive sides of Islam, on a day when brotherhood and reconciliation is celebrated. It is our hope that it will contribute to a more balanced view of the religion."
