UK: Muslim drag queen delivers London mayor hamper of vegan delights on Eid

Britain's first openly gay Muslim drag queen Asifa Lahore advocated for veganism on the Muslim religious holiday Eid al-Adha, when she delivered the mayor of London a hamper packed full of vegan delights to his office in City Hall, Thursday. Lahore called on Mayor of London Sadiq Khan to promote veganism amongst British Muslims outside of City Hall in London. «Eid al-Adha is a holy time of... Еще sacrifice and generosity to friends, family, and those in need», said Lahore. «And none are more in need of our help and kindness than animals, which is why PETA and I encourage everyone, including Mayor Khan, to celebrate Eid with vegan foods and to invite friends and neighbours to share in the festivities». She went on to say that Khan has a «responsibility» and if he «accepts veganism then it would give a big call to British Muslims to follow suit». Lahore highlighted that a variety of animals are slaughtered for the Muslim holiday of Eid, including lambs, goats and cows. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) states that «animals are not ours to eat» and notes that the Prophet Muhammad taught that an act of cruelty to an animal is as bad as cruelty to a human being.
