san fernando   Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley prayed with members of the Muslim community and distributed zakat (charity) to the needy as he celebrated Eid-ul-Fitr at two masjids in San Fernando yesterday. He attended the Eid services on an invitation from Minister of Local Government Kazim Hosein, who is also referred to as a Haji (a Muslim who has successfully completed the Hajj to Mecca). Rowley made his first stop at the Jama Masjid at Mucurapo Street, where he participated in the Eid prayer.
